serial # XXXXX I bought as a set new with the support bracket. If this is not information I will have to get back to you
Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 3 years ago.
Depending upon the model..There are a few things which can cause this to happen..First would be a agitator problem.If the agitator is not moving back and fourth then the clothes will bunch up and cause a out of balance spin...Second if the tub bearing is worn then it will also cause this...The tub seats on a the tub bearing..Once it gets worn the tub will no longer spin to balance due to wear...You would have to remove the tub to replace the bearing..

agitator was moving back and fourth, will have to get back to you with the washer model #

You would need to remove the tub ..Then check the bearings and seals#1 is the bearing and seal kit..Cost around $40.00...Also check the shocks make sure they are not broken...
