that would depend on where the noise is coming from if you remove the top cover and diagnose that the noise is coming more along the area of the center back wall then that would be the bearing although when a motor starts to go you could also have motor noise which would be towards the bottom of the unit if the noise is starting mainly during the spin option and sounds like a grinding noise this could also be a bearing as well.three screws located in the rear of the machine that hold down the top panel remove these three and slide the top panel towards the rear. This will allow you to see where your noise is coming from if you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick
p.s if you can turn the drum by hand and still hear a grinding or a type of scrapeing noise alot of the time it is a bearing issue but you would need to inspect the unit further to make sure that it is please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks

SOURCE: Miele w1113. Washer drum won't
I assume you are saying the machine is working except the drums not turning? - you need to see if the belt has come off because thats what i would check first if you hear the motor start/stop after it fills up with water.

SOURCE: Loud bang at the start
You're probably right. I don't remember whether this particular model has an access hatch on the back, if it does, replacing the belt should be fairly straightforward. First put the belt around the motor pulley, then use a screwdriver or similar to lever and roll the belt onto the drum pulley.
