Question about Washing Machines
My washer makes a loud noise when it is on spin and when I stop it makes the noise until it stops spinning.
Sounds like main drum bearing noise, try turning the drum by hand, if it feels rough or you can hear it grinding or rumbling, then it is the the main bearings that have failed..
You will probably need to call an engineer.

I had a shakey washer that I bought open box from "circuit city", it was a return.
I was to lazy to learn why the washer would shake and a technician told me to manually balance the wash load in the drum.
Later, I got into the washer and lubed up the rotating shafts and rockers. The washer lost all its shakes with the mechanics properly lubed. From the factory the mechanics were never properly lubed.
Tight mechanics that are supposed balance the spin cycle by moving could be part of what is getting warm. The belt spinning the washer also takes a beating when the drum shakes.
Get a good discount on your washer first, and then lube the mechanics. Everything about the washer is meant to work. If the mechanics are too tight you'll have shaking.
