No error codes.

Similar to Mark's problem below ... got a knocking sound, made it mostly thru 2 wash cycles. On the 2nd load, it stopped spinning and the clothes were rinsed but left sopping wet.

--> Tub is now "flopping around." It rotates freely by hand but now is unsupported. With it like this I have not tried to run the machine to see if it still turns by itself.

Hi, its possibly the shocks that's causing this.

The shocks do not have a lot of resistance on them. They should move fairly easy on the unit, but should not be very loose. They shouldn't be bottoming out or leaking any grease/oil. Also for any cracks in the shocks plastic casing as well.

Here's the shock absorbers for your model:
Shock Absorber WP8182703


If the shocks are good, then its either the outer tub bearing has gone bad or the inner tub spider support arm is cracked or broken. Only way to know is to take the inner tub out and see.

Here's the inner tub assembly for your model which includes the spider arm supports:
Inner Tub WPW10250573

Here's the rear outer tub assembly(includes bearing already installed) for your model:
Rear Drum with Bearing W10772617
