Kenmore Washer can't slow down, bangs to stop

Kenmore 80 series washer here. Basically just stops at the end of the spin cycle. It can't slow down, so it just bangs around (very loudly) until it slows down.

Washes clothes. Spin cycle removes water fine. Gets up to right speed no problem. Agitator works fine.

Can't slow down properly when spin cycle completes. Or any time it needs to slow down to a stop.

Happens during rinse cycle and spin cycle when it tries to slow down to stop.

Any ideas what's happening?

Appreciate any help. I hope it's not a devil machine.
