Mine was doing the same thing. I took off the top (remove the two screws underneath the panel strip under the controls, then lift from the front using a putty knife to push in the two clips) and removed the agitator (bolt in top under softener cup. On the agitator shaft is a collar with two bolts through it. One of mine was missing. The washer made a huge racket when spinning and would go out of balance easy empty or full.

Re: my frigidare glws1233a top load
Do you have this noise when operating an empty machine ?
It could be cause an unbalanced load of clothes. Stop the machine, redistribute the clothes and re-start the machine.
In case you still have this noise, the problem is with the transmition between the drive motor and the inner tub.
Good luck !

You didn't say when it was making the loud noise. During the wash cycle or spin cycle? An unbalanced washer will make a loud racket, too many clothes or actually not enough will make the basket bang around in there. If it has a center agitator, make sure it is tightened down. The screw is under the center Fabric Softener cup. That's the easy stuff to check. Now on mine, when you take the front panel off, I noticed that the hooks and springs that hold the basket up & in place and help keep it balanced, had actually over time had worn the round holes in the metal construction of the machine to oblong holes. Not much you can do about that. If the noise is coming from the motor, & you can't find a used cheap one, it would be more cost efficient to just use as long as you can and buy another machine. A loud noise could also be caused by a bad pulley. Hope this helps.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Since the suspension is ok and it is level, check your drive motor and spin bearing. Usually, these are the trouble parts when loud noises are associated with the spinning cycle. Your drive motor controls the spinning. Since the noise is during spinning, that is probably where your problem lies.
make sure you loads are balanced, put heaviest clothes in first... if you can rock it by hand then the legs are not adjusted properly. If you stand 2 feet away from front of machine, jump up and down and see it move the floor is soft and you need 2 sheets of plywood to make 1 1/2 inches put under the machine
