it seems that your washer isn't seated properly. I don't know what type of machine you have but if you could let me know I might be able to help you with your problem. Usually with top loaders you just put your hands on the back of the machine and lift forward toward the front and that should seat your machine but not knowing the type I can't be sure.

My Model GHW9100L Washing machine make a loud noise during spin cycle and parts of the wash cycle when the drum is moving back and forth.
You must mean when the AGITATOR is moving back & forth! The drum spins only in one direction. So...
The agitator is driven off a gear train in the transmission. If the noise is occurring during the AGITATOR’s motion, you’d best have that transmission serviced, and soon; before it could lock up and cause more serious damage.
Call around for estimates in your area for prices to replace the transmission if that is necessary. Ask for a parts and labor breakdown and for terms of the service warranty, which usually covers parts for about one year but labor for much less time. And be sure you use a technician qualified to work on your machine. You could even ask for a reference or two.
Don’t be afraid to have this service done, even on an older machine. If done properly it will serve for at least another 10 years. But if the cabinet is rusted and/or you’ve seen frequent repairs with this machine, replacing the machine is a better decision.
By the way, when you make a service call and inquire in a manner that reflects that you know about these things (like “I’m pretty sure the transmission is the problem because the noise occurs only when the agitator is operating”) you will gain more respect from a serviceman with integrity. He will know you’re serious about having this fixed and he might even suspect it’s already been looked at, so he may be more likely to give you his best price.
