Kenmore 80 Series top load washer, 12 years old: A while ago, small pieces of rusted metal were occasionally left in the bottom of the tub after a wash load. (I've got several of the pieces, and could post a picture, but not sure how to do that.) Now the washer makes a loud clunking noise during the spin cycle. Is this something obvious, like a bad bearing? And if so, is the repair a reasonable one to attempt for a competent DIYer? Thanks for any info or help...

Thanks for the reply... Model # 110.28882790

I don't have access to video camera, but I've tried inserting the url of a photo stored online and it doesn't show up in the message. Is there a way to insert a photo into a comment?

The pieces are flat, and a maximum of 3/8" wide.

OK, try this:

Given that these pieces are showing up in the bottom of the inner tub, it seems reasonable that they're coming from somewhere in the agitator assembly (agitator bearing, perhaps?) But if so, it seems odd that a part in the agitator assembly would be making a loud knocking noise only during the spin cycle, since it's not in use then... Maybe I've got more than one problem (?)

possibly part of your drive block falling apart but it really looks like your basket might be rusting apart but i cant say i have seen that on a machine that new.  Take the agitator off and take another picture

After a few unexpected days out of town, I'm back with additional info. First, a video from beginning of the spin cycle to when the knocking noise gets loud as the spin speed increases (It's low quality, but good enough to illustrate the spin noise):

I removed the agitator, and took a couple of shots of the center column... Rust is significant, to put it mildly:

Thanks for any diagnostic help and suggestions on how to proceed.

i cant tell from the pictures but is the outer part of the basket broken free from the rusty center part? if it is then you need a new basket

Sohei - The basket is still connected across the rusty vertical section, but has rusted through in at least two places. It appears I do indeed need a new basket. Could that rusted section also be a cause for the spin cycle shaking and knocking noise seen in the video, or is that likely from another cause, like broken counter-balance or suspension spring(s) ?

OK, I got the spanner wrench to remove the spanner nut, and want to take out the old basket and also look around at other places in the washer before ordering the new basket and any other parts I might need. But even with the wrench and a small sledge hammer I can't get the nut to budge. The slots in the spanner nut are beginning to strip, and I'm afraid if I continue to beat it, it will strip to the point where I REALLY can't get it off. Any tricks or ways to help ease the spanner nut off ?
