Our GE Front Load washer (model WCVH6260FWW) has started making a racket during the various spin cycles. It kind of sounds like the wash basket is loose and banging against something. When I checked it, I found that the wash basket moves a fair amount front-to-back, but there is no up-and-down movement to it, so I don't think the bearings are worn. I know it makes the noise during the spin cycle, but I'm not sure about the wash cycle; my wife just started a load, so I'll check it in a few minutes to see. FWIW, this particular unit was built in April 2006.
If it helps, I uploaded a recording of the sound to https://dl.dropboxus...CVH6260FWW.m4a
Thanks for any guidance you can offer!
