I have a washer (Roper RTW4640YQ0) that upon spin cycle wobbles and bangs and tries to walk across the floor.

I have made sure the washer is level and true, but the problem is not affected at all by the slight adjustment I made. It has continued to worsen, in fact.

Upon taking it apart I see there are 4 shock absorber spring-rods. Up at the top of these spring-rod absorber devices, there are two small springs, attached to the outer tub and the Shock absorbers, both on the same side. The tub does not sit perfectly centered, but it's very close.

My question: Is there anything else (other than the shock absorber spring rods) that could be responsible for the rocking/banging, obviously out of balance, condition of this washer? Should I replace these and other parts?

It is not obvious at all how these shock rods function. If anyone that really understands how these devices work to prevent load rocking, I would be grateful for an explanation. This is mostly just curiosity though. Thank you so much for your time.
