I just bought a used Amana NTW4630YQ0 top load washer from a used appliance dealer. It seems to run just fine until the spin cycle. When the spin cycle gets up to speed. It will bang the drum on the side of the washer about 4 to 8 times and then the banging stops. But I think the drum is still spinning. Can't tell for sure because of the lid lock. But it sounds like it is still spinning.

A simple fix would be easier than loading it up and driving 2 hours, He will replace it though. I checked the balance rods and springs and they are not broken. I can move the drum back and forth I think a little too easily. Could the springs be weak? Does this model have a balance ring? But it seems to run fine other than that. This must be why some one got new machines. Any Ideas? Thanks
