Hi We have a Kenmore Oasis washer that makes a clicking sound

Resolved Question:

We have a Kenmore Oasis washer that makes a clicking sound when the the tub is spinning. When I manually spin the tub, one of the ball and sockets that suspend the tub enclosure is making noises as though it is not lubricated. My wife thinks it is coming from down below and is convinced it is a bearing. I would like to rule out the suspension mechanism first.

My question is how do I remove the top to gain access to front left side ball and socket to relubricate or inspect for damadge?

There are 2 clips in the front top of the washer, you can release them with a thin screwdriver, one on each side a few inches in from the edges.
