Kenmore 11020722990 Top Load ~13-14 years old. Need to get ~1.5 more years out of it.

Has a loud bang when it is starting the spin.

Seems to agitate just fine. Drains fine. If I put it on the rinse spin cycle and push the lid switch and watch it, it spins up just fine. Looks a little out of balance though (empty it the top of the agitator moves about an inch in diameter larger than the top of the agitator itself). When I let off the lid switch it seems to coast/brake down without any noises in about 3 seconds when a full load is in there. It's getting to the point that it moves the washer about 10 degrees (or about 5 inches).

I've repaired various things on this washer before...but this one is a first. any ideas?
See inside of your appliance - diagrams and part photos for virtually every model.

Remove the washer cabinet and check the suspension springs and the mounting plate.

Check the drive block as described in one of our previous threads:

Post the results.
