Whirlpool has been having problems with their tub bearings. Not an easy fix at all. But to me it sounds like you
may have a broken shock. Pull the bottom panel off (three screws on the bottom) and you'll see the shocks.
It will be obvious to the eye. If that is the problem you can replace just that one, but I would go ahead and
replace all four...hope this helps.

My Kenmore stackable washer makes very load noises in the rinse and spin cycle but still works. Anyone have idea why it's making so much noise

Try spinning the drum by hand when empty, the faster the better. Does it sound noisy or is there a grinding sound? It should sound silent or whir as everything turns. If noisy then it may well be the drum bearings. If it clunks then it may be one of the arms that holds the drum in place has broken.

Whirlpool wtw5100sq0 clunks when put on spin cycle

Does the washer currently work fine aside from the loud clunking noise? Does the clunking noise continue or is it just one loud clunk when it starts to spin? If its just one loud clunk then that is not a problem just ignore it as that is the clutch spring releasing, it probably starting making noise from the grease getting washed off when the washer over filled.
However how did the washer overfill? That issue should be addressed too. Sometimes though, if the tub is not centered from a heavy load the water will spill over the back but its not really an overfill.

Check the suspension springs that hold the tub. Here is a link to the springs in case you need them. Here is a video to show you how to access the springs.

The drum "clunks" when it is distributing the load before it goes into a spin - but not "clunking" when its spinning. The machine is one week old.

The noise you refer to is the washer trying ti distribute the load evenly, before going into fast spin., itn is called distrubution spin for that purpose.
It is more likely to occur if you only have a couple of articles in, or something bulky and heavy.
It is not normally somethimg to worry about, as the washer will not do it's final spin, if the load is not distributed properly.
Hope this helps with your query.

GE washer will NOT spin, but does all other functions.

You need to have the fan belt checked. It must have been loose or broken.
