Most front loaders are pretty much the same and it sounds like your tub bearings are going bad. There is also a problem in some front loaders where the drum arms corrode and break. You won't know until you pull it apart. If you are doing the work yourself it depends on the parts you need. You can knock out old bearings and match some up.
If you are paying someone, it may be cheaper to buy a new washer..

Excessive noise while spinning


Hi.

Have a look at the drum bearing, that is the most common cause for noise on the spin part of the cycle.

Hello,
It sounds as if the bearings have gone or something as serious that needs inspecting.This machine would have the normal 5 year major parts warranty and they would offer a repair but you would pay the call out and labour.Hope this helps.

My tricity bendix washing machine flashing and beeping end light


Hi, we had something similar happen just before christmas. Our machine seemed to finish a cycle and started making beeping noise with end light flashing. Then when I switched it back on to do another load it just started beeping with end light flashing no matter what cycle was selected. Engineer has been out and advised that it is a fault with the motherboard so has ordered another one. Hope this is of some help. Machine was tricity bendix aw1400w.
