If the unit started banging during spin check the inner tub for play, if you grab the bottom edge of the inner tub and can lift it up and down at all that is a bad main bearing or cracked support. Then the tub drops and will rub on the tub boot or lower edge of the outer drum and you may see some pieced of gray bits i the wash. If that is the case the cost of the parts and labor totally exceed the value of the unit so there really is no fixing this issue and I would look for a new one...sorry for the bad news on this.

I hope you have a Merry Christmas....All I ask is please use the....FINISH BY RATING link at the top your page to select a 5 STAR RATING before leaving today....this is important for my status on the site plus without a rating I will receive ZERO credit(NO PAY) from the site for assisting you.
