The bearing numbers are 6306-2rs and 6307-2rs which go with seal # G059 which I sell on Ebay.

This link should get you on your way.
In addition I should mention that the original bearings are a shielded bearing (Z). Follow the link and use 6306-2RS and 6307-2RS bearings which are sealed. I was able to match up SKF 562737 seal which is now a CR 15939 seal I believe. It is completely rubber coated. Between the sealed bearings and new seal you should be good to go.

Model # FWTR445RFS1. During the high speed spin it just started making a loud thumping noise. Tried sever different loads and it does not seem to be a clothes imbalance. I also took off the back cover...

There is a shaft that goes through a bearing in the back of the outer tub which supports and turns the inner tub. It is connected to the outside edges of the inner tub by a "spider arm". The normal play for the inner tub should be smooth, even and firm. If you can get it to move one way more than another one of the arms of the spider may be cracked. It would require removing ans splitting open the outer tub to inspect the rear support of the inner one.

Final spin loud noise out of balance??

sounds like your bearing is shot
is this a fridgedair?
does it sound like a 747 or freight train?
if yes might as well throw it away
I would say your looking at about 5-6 hundred dollars to repair
you will need the basket and outer tub
the reason is your bearing is compressed from the factory in your outer tub and your basket shaft goes through the bearing
and usually gets eaten up by the bearing

Drum came loose on Fridgedaire front loader on final spin cycle.

What was the point of posting this on the site?

The drum has broken loose from the support plate at the rear

You need a new drum and a support plate plus probably an outer shell.

A complaint to the manufacturer may get you a deal on a replacement

The drum is loose. I pulled the back panel off and the nut is tight behind the drum? could it be the bearing? do I need to change the whole drum? is this a common problem or was this do to abuse.
