Hi, At the end of the spin cycle the washer makes loud thumping noises. The frequency of the thumping is related to the speed of the inner basket. Rotated the inner basket by hand and noticed that the basket drops approx 1/16 inch at the same point during each rotation and makes that thumping noise. Noise sounds like metal dropping on another metal piece. Please advise as to which part needs replacement. Thank you

ANSWER Hello Beamka. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the drive block 389140 is bad and will need to be replaced in the unit.
