Nobody mentioned a tub bearing. You have a broken spinner basket support. See the following video:
Why Kenmore Washers Fail  (whirlpool too)

When it broke, the tub flopped around, likely damaging the outer tub, which is a whitish plastic material. In this case, you can order a new tub kit along with the new spinner basket and then you will have a new machine (mechanically speaking). Keep in mind that you also risk other repairs later down the road which are not related to this issue, so  this is why I hesitated to recommend a great expense on your behalf. If you are comfortable with the prices you find on the parts, there's no reason you can't replace the tub as well as the spinner while you're in there. It's all going to have to come apart the same way anyhow. If it were me, I would start disassembling it to see just what was damaged and what was not. You can't use it anyway.

ok, what I didn't get was how the two joined/relationship to the plastic. i don;t have an issue with taking it apart just wanted to order what I thought would be needed. that way i could put it right back together. i'll disassemble and we'll see what's next. Thanks for your assistance
