Amana washer balance/leak
 
When I am in an agitation part of the cycle, the drum is very "wobbly" this starts a wave traveling around the drum and it eventually builds up high enough to splash up through the drain holes in the plastic splash shield on the top of the drum. When this starts it will fill up the cavities on the top of the slash shield and water will be flung off the top of the drum, filling the bottom of the washer and eventually the floor.

Is this just old/weak springs or is there something that helps stabalize the drum in the base mounting?

How do I stabalize the drum to stop the leaking/splashing out the top?
