Kenmore Oasis Washer getting louder during spin

I have a Kenmore Oasis washer model # 110.27062603. The spin cycle keeps getting louder and louder as time goes on. Any help where to look for problem would be appreciated. Some searches referred to clutch, but speaking with sears chat, there is no clutch on this model.

Thanks JR

They are correct.... there is no clutch. Yours is a direct drive machine. No gearbox or transmission.

I'm not familiar with this machine but the only thing I can think of is the hub is going bad or a bearing. Apparently bearings are an issue. See the video and if it pertains to your machine.

Very common problem with your machine. Have replaced many bearings and tub assy for bad bearings.
Here is the bearing kit # W10435302. Also there is a special tool for it. A lot of times the basket is stuck on shaft and will not come off. you might call Kenmore to see if they extended any warranty's on this. Don't think they did but can't hurt to try.
