Whirlpool Direct-Drive Still no want to Spin

I put it back together, and now it spins, but very slowly, and still makes the loud noise. What is my next step?

I took the plastic ring off the top of the tub, and looked down around the sides of the spin basket. I see nothing in there. Also, the spin basket will turn by hand.
If the spin basket turns easily by hand then you most likely have a broken drive block also. Take the agitator out and look at the spanner nut, does the spin tube stick out above the top of the spanner nut about 1/2" to 1", if YES, then replace the drive block.
If the drive block is stripped, make sure to carefully bend all four corners of the tabs that stick up back out to their correct position. A tappered chisel tapped gently between agitator shaft and spin tub tabs will bring them back into correct position so as not to strip out the new drive block.
