Kenmore washer banging whille spinning empty!!

My sister has a Kenmore washer model 92273100. It's making a terribly loud banging sound when it spins. It does it while spinning empty and w/clothing. Any suggestions??

Thanks in advance!!!

First has the machine been moved recently? here is a link to your machine. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/part...er=11092273100.
look under base and see parts 3 and 15 . If machine has not been moved tilt machine back to wall and look under machine and see if the springs are there and connected at both ends. Let us know what you find out.
If machine has been moved may have other problems.

The washer hadn't been moved. We checked the springs underneath. They were fine. The entire tub moves too freely inside the washer. It's 16 yrs old and I believe they may just buy a new one. Thank you anyhow.

Tilt back of machine to you until you hear a click that will reset rear leveling legs. Basket tub assy should move freely. Good machine should last a long time.
