I have a Whirlpool lcr523dq2...problem

I fixed a problem with the washer overflowing thanks to this newsgroup. I have another problem. This problem "according to the renter", has been there since he moved in. After the spin cycle is finished and as the machine shuts off, there is a loud clunk that actually moves the machine. Other than this, it works fine. It sounds like something serious, but the renter says it's been doing this for a long time. Transmission, bearing etc.....thanx 4 the help

The brake is grabbing to hard. There are two ways to solve this. One, replace the basket drive. This is somewhat involved as DIY. Second, and cheaper, is to put a drop of oil along where the "pads" of the basket drive grab, so they slide a bit. The downside is that as it comes to a final stop, it'll make a squeek. Placing the drop of oil can be a little tricky. You pull the washer away from the wall, lean it back at an angle against the wall, get on your back with a bottle of turbine oil with a long spout, and locate the pads inside the upside-down bowl that the pads rotate inside and grab against. In order of bottom to top, there is the gearcase, then the clutch, then your target area mounted above the clutch. You put a drop of oil on the side of the bowl (not on the pads), which is actually part of tub support. You can see the brake pads inside it. Put the machine upright and put it into spin. Stop it, and the jerking will have stopped.
