I took the machine apart, removed the tub and tested the spin cycle. It ran smooth with no tub. I cleaned everything and reassembled it. The machine again shook violently on spin. While apart I noticed the plastic ring around the top of the drum has liquid inside, is this normal? I don't know what else to check.
Thanks for your help
When you took the tub out was the drive block sitting where it should be , on the drive tube theres ears sticking up they should slide on to the drive block
Disconnect power first 7. Remove the basket. To remove the inner basket you will need a spanner tool to remove the inner basket, remove the agitator, remove the tank cover, remove the nut and lift up of the inner basket. You may be able to get away with using a straight screw driver and a hammer. Once the tub nut is off, sometimes the tub gets frozen to the center hub. If the tub will not lift out, sometimes putting one foot inside of the tub and stomping down will break it free.
Two people, one on each side can also lift up and push down at the same time, may also break the inner basket free.
If it looked like this A bad drive block. Let me know
I added some liquid and got the machine to run ok, until I can get a new part. thanks for all your help. I'm authorizing payment to you now.
