Help! I have this washing machine that bangs MOST of the time during the spin cycle. When I open the top the tub seems to be leaning back and to the right a little bit. I can move it back to the center, but after a load it moves back to the right/back position. Also during the spin cycle I have lifted the rear of machine up and dropped it back down to ensure the machine is sitting level. Any suggestions?
See inside of your appliance - diagrams and part photos for virtually every model.

You need to take off the cabinet, by pass the lid switch and watch it run.

Here is a site that will show you how.

Check your suspension pads, plate and support structure. If all looks ok, I would replace the springs, it is not an expensive part and it should help.
