Makes load noise when spinning, generally noisy, when at rest drum not rotating easily as it used to, but now very hard to turn, and when you push it round it makes a kind of deep scrapping noise...not high pitched but as if it is metal against metal.

Re: BOSCH V651 Front Loader
Suspect you have a foreign object jammed between tub and drum.
to check, remove back panel, remove heater (held by one 10mm nut in the centre - just loosen the nut and prise the heater out.
you can then see into the gap and check if there is something stuck there - bra wires are the favourite

If you rotate the pulley on the back of the drum does it rotate the drum? i have seen these snap the back of the drum off. also they can have issues with the controller board for the motors which would require a technician to determine.
Had noise during spin cycle called for repair $79 dollors later its tub assembly its clamp on the back of drum cost $1000 dollors to repair so if you have 747 during spin cycle buy yourself a new machine.
From the front of the washer, spin the drum by hand, and if it feels rough, or is noisy, or rumbling, then the main drum bearings have failed..
If no noise, then problem is elsewhwere.
Hope this helps.
The drum is powered by a small motor and pulley, inside the unit and under the drum. A large belt wraps around the drum and pulley, and a spring "thing" provides tension so that the belt won't slip. The squeaking sound indicates that something is slipping, and the sluggish drum says that it's the drive belt. Take off the back, locate the motor/pulley/spring thing, and check the belt tension by observing the belt with unit operating. At that point you should easily locate the noise, at the motor (noisy bearing, lube or replace), belt warn (replace) or possibly the felt pads located at the top of the drum worn (not as likely but they do fail causing the drum to resist being spun by the motor to the point that the belt starts to slip. Hope this helps!
Remove drive belt.and turn drum by hand, if it feels rough or sounds noisy, then the main drum bearings have failed., also check that the main drum pulley is not loose. If you think it is the bearings, then it is quite an expensive repair.
Plz rate this solution.Thanks.
remove the top access panel 3 screws in top rear. now look around and push on the drum from top it has suspension shocks and springs like your car they should resist any movements. look/wiggle the concrete balance blocks , no cracks or loose. inside the tub are the arm solid /not loose. run it with the top open what do you see/hear and where look under the rubber flap in front did anything get under the tub
drum bearings, check and investigate, remove drive belt and then rotate, if still noisy then yes its the drum bearings, if the noise stops when the belt removed the motor bearings are faulty
costly repair on most models, sorry
oh there is also the possibility there is something lodged within the drum cavity between the lining and the drum casing
