I have a LA7680XKN2 Whirlpool that I have had for 20 years. Works great with the exception of it walks on spin and sometimes bangs. I have replaced the following: All feet front and back, snubber, made sure it is level, tightened the gearcase braces, it is on a concrete floor, even moved all the cloths around when it does it. I'm at a loss as to what it is.

If the snubber assy. has been replaced and the splashguard is on secure and the rear legs do not have one stuck up and one down,  make sure the 3 supports for the baseplate are intact.   That is about all there is for the balance on these old belt driven washers that I can think of right now.

Even weight distribution on the footings is critical for this washer:

Well, I tried everything that was suggested. It still wants to move some but it is better. The leveling is a problem but I think I have it. Thanks for the help.
