After the spin cycle but when the basin is spinning down to stop the washer makes a loud thumping sound (like a machine gun) and walks across the floor a bit. washer seems to spin the water out of the clothes fine but the noise is new (and loud). It does not seem to make a difference if it is a large load or the small load. Any ideas? Thanks
ANSWER Terri, It sounds like the drive block 389140 has "rounded" out, and is spinning on the basket drive tube 285792 when the brake locks and stops the spin process. you'll need to remove the agitator, Spanner nut and spin basket to check the tabs on the top of the drive tube and replace the drive block if the tabs are OK.
