Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

Frigidaire front load washer FWT449GFS1 grinding sound

The washer developed a griding sound midway thru a wash. Turning the inside steel chamber by hand you can detect a grinding sound around the half turn. The wash seems fine, but the sound of mechanical grinding is concerning.
Any ideas?

If the tub seal lets go water will weep into the tub bearing. This will rust the basket shaft and normally wreck the tub bearing. Once the bearings starts to get worn enough it usually gets very noisy. The tub bearing is pressed onto the outer back half of the tub shell assembly. Normally need to replace the inner basket/shaft assembly and the outer shell with the tub bearing.
