when goes into spin the basket bangs all around. don't matter if its empty or with a load in it. cust says sometimes it don't go into spin but i haven't seen that yet. he said he replaced the clutch. i did take apart and inspected the clutch, it appears to be ok. all the suspension springs are intact. dunno what else it could be.

  Check that the suspension plate is in place and that the 6 damper pads are ok. Also check the drive block, could be worn out.

drive block is good. one of the lower flat damper pads is broken but i don't see how that could be causing the off balance. going to replace them tho. the balance ring still had the liquid in it.

Make sure the tub frame is evenly supported by the skate plate, lots of times if the washer is laid down, it will not sit properly.
