Does it make any unusual noises when it's washing and not in spin mode? Is the machine level? Have you opened it up to see if anything looked damaged or a counter balance came loose?

no unusual noises in wash,yes appears to be level-has always been in the same place and this is a recent developement, nothing inside the tub looks damaged, curious about this "counterbalance" thing- where and what is it and how do you get to it. not familiar with this washer and how you access-do you just tip it back. i know some GE washers have these rubber straps in corners that break thought maybe this had something similar or maybe not.

Also the inner tub should move up and down about an inch you should be Able to lift up on the inner tub and it should be able to slide down

if its not pumping out the water it wont be balanced when it spins. Watch Video     this video will help you find the pump if you can hear that pump running but no water is getting to the drain you may have a clogged pump or line. If the pump is not running when the washer is in the drain part of the cycle then you will need to check for voltage to the pump if you have power then the pump is bad if no power to the pump while it is draining then the problem is else where

Just fixed one of these today.

 

It is usually the suspension rods that get rusted and need to be replaced.

yeah jontech it pumps all the water out it is right after the water has all pumped out and it starts the fast spin that this happens.         KCTBURY--did your unit do it in final spin or is that unusual that it would seem to do it only in the final spin(realize that is a much faster spin and it doesnt happen until it builds up some pretty good speed) suspension rods make sense to me -just wondering if my circumstance unusual.. thanks

Sounds like suspension rods to me. If you push down hard on the center of the agitator and quickly let go the tub should not bounce. It should be pretty hard to depress the rods as we'll. if you push down and the tub rebounds and bounces at all, you have bad rods. Very common.

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.
