Part 546905the skate plate kit.sometimes these shift out of possition and it really starts banging. you have to have someone lift up on the entire tub assembl and turn thios around until it seats right.click here for all the diagrams on this machine , http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=257418 there is one more possiblity , Part 547691iiner tub and ballance ring assembly , hope this helps. thanks Bryan
