Sounds like broken triunion. Big job. 

the spider arm is good,

should this move this much? if it isnt supposed to could my suspension springs be the culprit here?

That spring is fine, the noise ur hearing is the ball bearings in the tub balance ring

alright guys its fixed it was the power inverter turned out to be electronic problem in the end.

I guess i ended up learning a lot about these front load washers so not a total loss replacing the spider arm i guess.

thanks for all the advice and info
