is there any way to adjust the counterweights so that the tumbler moves in towards the motor or a way to move the motor out some more so this doesnt happen???
No way to adjust that, sorry.
If you take the big pulley that is on the back of the tub and try to wiggle it back and fourth is there a lot of play in it?
Was the washer getting noisy during the spin cycle?
We have seen a number of these tub bearings go bad on these. You get play in the tub bearings and the pulley no longer runs true on the back of the tub because of the play in the bearings.
