When the washer goes in to the spin cycle - very loud noise as the the front tub shell slams up and down - small pieces of the tub shell are breaking off - I replaced the shocks yesterday - This made no difference - I am afraid to run it again - It sounds like it is going to break apart - Is there another part I can try to replace, or should I bring this POS to the Dump.
ANSWER Hello Dan. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the bearings are bad and you will need to replace the outer tub 131525500 and the front tub assembly 131618600. If the shaft is bad on the inner basket from the bad bearings, you will need to replace the inner basket 131618500 as well.
