At lower spin speeds the washer will shake more than at the full speed spin, but it shouldn't be knocking. I'd remove the back sheet metal panel and the lower front panel and see if you can narrow down where the noise is coming from. The springs are not the problem if they are not physically broken. Other than that make sure the counter weight bolts are not loose, and lastly you'd be looking at bad shocks even if they look good.
The spider is not going to be the problem because that will only get louder as the washer spins faster, the knocking doesn't go away.

OK well that is really an odd one. Something is going on inside that drum for sure. I think based on that noise something is wrapped around the shaft between the inner and outer basket. You'd have to take the tub out and split it to remove the inner basket and see what's causing the knocking. It should be fairly obvious when you take it apart.
Unfortunately yes. Nothing outside the washer is going to make that noise. You'd have to take it apart to fix the issue anyways but you can't tell what's going on in there until you take it apart.
