I have a GLTF1670AS1 washer and it just started banging loudly upon the spin cycle. I watched carefully as the drum was spinning and it did not seem as if the load was unbalanced. I'm thinking the belt is starting to fray and a section is banging against the case somehow. Does this make any sense? If so, is this a difficult repair?

Thanks in advance!

You might have broken shocks, a broken spinner support or one of the concrete counterweights on the outer tub broke loose.

Further evaluation today shows the banging only occurs when going into high speed. When I grab one of the plastic bars on the inside of the tub and pull back and forth, the drum bangs. So, is that a bearing or spinner support? Is either of those items difficult to repair?

That's a spinner support, and yes it's a rather difficult repair.You will probably have to replace the whole rear half of the outer tub as well.

Unfortunately, due to the price of the parts it looks like this machine is ready to be retired.
