As per soultion 2 this is a hard drawn out job involving a lot work and there is no guarantee the bearings will not shatter when trying to knock them out. better get someone in!

Samsung front loader washing machine

Sounds very much like the drum bearings have failed. It is not a DIY job I'm afraid. Up to date washing machines are now impossible to actually replace bearings and only way to repair is to replace inner and outer drum assembly. This is a 1/2 a day job at the least to a professional. Older can replace the bearings but this still involves removing the outer drum ou from under the washing machine, and the a very normal bearing removal and replacement procedure. Make sure the bearings are knocked in very straight and not on the skew. Good luck

My washing is getting bits of dirt on it. How do I clean out the machine?


Below are tools and instruction need to solve the problem.

If your washing machine begins making strange noises such asrumbling, banging or screeching, it is time to troubleshoot the problem and fixthe machine. A noisy washing machine that's ignored can become expensive lateras the problem worsens and leads to damage of more expensive parts.
1 Inspect inside the basket for loose items. Objects such as coins, pens andpaperclips can fall out of pockets and become lodged in the basket. Run themachine again to test for any further noise.
2 Remove the top panel bysliding a flat-head screwdriver under the panel and releasing the clips. Slidethe top off of the machine and shine a flashlight into the sides of the basketto check for loose items. Remove any items and run the machine again.
3 Place a level on top of themachine and verify that it is completely level. If the machine is at alluneven, adjust the bottom feet by turning them to the right or left. On mostmachines a turn to the right will raise the machine and a turn to the left willlower it. If the machine is level or still making noise after adjustments,continue trouble shooting.
4 Replace the drum bearings.Review your owner's manual to locate the drum bearings. Unplug the machine andturn off the water supply. Remove all necessary panels with a screwdriver.Remove the driver belt and manually spin the drum. If it makes a rumblingnoise, then unscrew the drum bearings and replace them.
5 Replace the drive belt as well if it isworn, cracked or loose. This will prevent the need to re-open the washingmachine if the noise continues after replacing the drum bearings.
6 Re-assemble the machine and run it again. If it isstill making noise, contact a repairman for a consultation.
Thanks for using fixya.

Has been working as usual until today .Scuffing/ scraping noises when drum is turning

Check for pin, or other item caught in a hole in the tub rubbing on the outer tub to make noise as the tub turns.

Making noise when running

It can be tempting to ignore washing machine noises, especially if the machine is still working. But washing machine noise is not only annoying, it can also be a sign of serious damage. When armed with a few tips, you can determine what problem may be causing your washing machine to rattle, and what you can do to stop it.
Instructions: 1)Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings. 2)Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. (When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.) 3)Look for obvious dents and creases in the drum or look for coins or small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub. 4)Clear the water pump from obstructions like coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is emptying water. 5)Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires if you hear a light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can also check to make sure a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the drum. In this case, you can pull the wire out easily with pliers. 6)Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.

LG Tromm wm 1814cw makes loud noise

You will need to remove the back cover plate of the machine and locate the large pulley at the end of the drum. Remove the belt, then the pulley and you should see a bearing housing. Some models require a bearing and housing replacement, while others can simply be repaired with a bearing replacement alone.
Go here, and find the nearest Dealer for your part.

Or you can try ordering direct from LG. If you are as handy with tools as you say, this should be a fairly easy job.

your drum bearings have gotten water in them from the lip-seal on the drum drive shaft,you need to remove the rear access panel,remove the belt remove the pulley,then remove inner tub and remove the spider that holds the inner drum on,then remove old seal and replace the inner and outer bearings,dont do just the inner bearing as the outer one isn't that expensive and may go out later,and its very labor intensive,anywhere from 2 to 7 hours depending on how stuck the old bearings are in the machine

How do I replaCE A DRUM BEARING LG wm1832cw front load washer?

remove screws from front panel,this will let you remove top cover then you can access the drum belt and remove this, then manually rotate drum by hand,i bet you will find that the drum glides/rollers in the front side of the drum are your noise makers,not the rear center bearing

Rear drum bearing

When it is like that you usually need to replace the drum bearing.

If the tub recently started making a lot of noise, and you can feel that the bearing had too much play when spinning by hand, that means that the drum bearing needed to be replaced.

You can find drawings and the schematics entering model number here.
