Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer
My washer spins very violently. It sounds as if the basket is slamming against the sides as it spins. Therefore, it is also very loud. It washes well and the clothes are always very well wrung out after the spin. But I'm sure this can't be normal and I'm afraid there is a problem that if I don't address may kill the washer all together. Thanks!
Tilt backwards and check the balancing springs. one of them are broken

You may have one suspension point that has failed.
Open the back and using a flashlight, inspect the outer shell; the suspension should look the same at each point.
Don't know your particular machine but the suspensions are pretty primitive, some no more than heavy rubber rings at each point.
You're right that it shouldn't be ignored, as it can cause more problems and stresses the bearings abnormally.
Sometimes, this can be caused by running one very unbalanced load and not stopping the machine to redistribute the clothing to correct the imbalance.
This can cause a suspension point to become unhinged.
