I have a new question about this model of washer.  Mine has worked without a problem for at least a year, and probably for the three years it's been in commission.  Now it washes fine, but when it goes into the spin cycle with any load, it makes a thunderous vibrating noise.  I tried rotating the empty drum manually and there was no problem.  My super opened the bottom panel and ran it to triage it and said that the 'legs' are fine, and that he thought that it might have a problem with the front guide.  He didn't sound optimistic, however, and I'm giving it until tomorrow before I call a professional. 
So I have two questions:

1) Is there any more information I can get before calling a repairman?
2) What's the best estimate of my probability of having to replace this?


Thanks.
