It could be a number of things. Anything from drum bearing failure to something as simple as a coin becoming trapped inside the tub under the drum.

Yes it is the main bearings, and they can be replaced.
If it has no removable rear panel ,then it is a major repair job, as it entails removing the cabinet and stripping the whole washer down, removing the complete drum assy from the cabinet and seperating the 2 drum halves, a major undertaking.

How ever if it has a removable rear panel, then the repair can all be done from the rear.
Hope this helps with your prob.
Plz rate my comments to your prob.

During spin cycle drum makes loud noise. Sounds like bearings are going out. Can they be lubricated? Or replaced

Depends on what sort of machine it is. (Front or top load)Bearings can be replaced but this will always entail replacement of all the tub seals and in the case of front loaders, almost always , it will need a new drum shaft. The costs to fix can be expensive. To confirm bearing failure, you can see if the tub moves and clunks on the main shaft and the noise will increase as the tub speed increases. Drum bearings usually fail when the tub seal fails or is worn out, allowing water to get into the bearing and wash all the grease out. Brown , black greasy stains under your machine and on the floor is usually a telltale sign as well.

My Samsung wash and dryer model WD0704REU makes a noise when spinning the clothes. normally it's quite but now make a sound. it gets louder with speed increases. please help,

I suspect that you either have a Tub bearing problem; there might be a fault with the inner tub (it has come loose on its mountings). or the counterbalance weights on the outer tub may have worked loose.

But from the limited information you have given, I tend to think that the inner tub bearings may be failing?

I hope this helps?
