Ok guys me and my brother bought a set of whirlpool washer and dryer for our apartment. i had some cloths to wash and only had 1 laud left of detergent so i put in to big of a load. every since then when it is coming to the end of a cycle it starts banging around real bad kinda sounds like a loader version of a baseball card in a bike spoke or helicopter blades whipping. I can take it apart and fix it but i need a starting point of what to look for and start diagnosing.

Washer is whirlpool LSB6300LW1, type 111, CP3806646

May not need to tear it apart just yet. Lean it back against the wall and look left of center at the back bottom rear of tub. There should be a spring going from the bracket on the tub to the frame of the machine. Do you see it?

Sounds like you have stripped out the basket drive block. It's an easy repair and a cheap part. There should be directions for thr repair posted. I have to go to work, I'll check back when I get home and give you all the details

thank you guys. do you think it might be more of a clutch and brake issue vs the drive block? the problem happens when its almost done washing as if there is a brake trying to stop it and it keeps getting pummeled by something? I have it torn down but i need to see if my freinds or family might have a spanner nut wrench. i will post pics of drive block.
