Kenmore stackable washer 417-40042990

My washer is making a loud noise when in the fast spin cycle. I removed the back cover and ran the machine. I could hear the loud banging noise coming from inside the "Outer Shell". All the springs and shocks are intact... The pulley-drum seems to be tight (no wobbling) but there is a movement on the shaft (i.e. if you pull on the pulley it moves back and forth about a 1/2"). Any idea what is causing this noise? Would this be expensive to repair?

Thanks in advance

Dose it roar in spin? yes a difficult and expensive repair. bearing in shell bad, will need a shell and basket, Basket may have lifetime warranty, but I think it has to have a pro fix it. Call Sears repair and ask.
