do you actually see the motor spinning? or think you hear it, check the belt hasn't come off, or gone slack, it needs to be fairly tight but not too tight, if the belt and pulley go round but the drum doesn't then you have serious damage and need a new inner drum hope i have helped and if i can help more get back to me, i am an appliance engineer of 20 years

I have similar problem with same model unit, found brushes on motor worn to point copper contact is hitting and scoreing commutator. Easy checked, ensure power completely disconnected, lie machine on side and gently rotate drum looking in side the motor. The commutator is what looks like a circular block of copper segments which will rotate with the drum and should be evenly worn and coated with carbon from the brushes. If you see a clean copper area, usually in the center, then the brushes are worn down below workable levels. Suggest replacing should resolve problem.

I had a heavy knocking noise and found it to be the counterweight ( or stabilizer) whiich looks like a lump of cement, had come loose and was slapping around. Managed to tighten bolts holding it to the drum whiich solved the problem.

Remove drum drive belt, and spin drum by hand, if there is any resistance,. or it feels rough or noisy, the the main bearigs have probably failed.
If it is o/k then check motor for worn or noisy bearings,
Please rate my solution.
