Thumping Sound at End of Spin

All other operation of this Kenmore Series 80 Washer are normal. I installed new braided steel supply lines and re-leveled by lifting back 2 inches and letting drop, as always, and now there's a pretty loud Thump Thump ... when the spin cycle ends.

This is likely brake related but thought I'd come here first as there are quite a few experienced repair people on this site. Any help is appreciated.


If you don't have time to do it right, when will you ever have time to do it over?

does it thump loudly and bang, does it sound like the drum is stopping very suddenly and hitting the sides, That would be the brake grabbing and will usualy only do that a time or 2 and be ok. If it thumps more than once it is probably the drive block.
