You generally have to open up the cabinet from the back by unscrewing the fasteners.

Loud grinding noise


These are the bearing that the drum rides on. There are bearings in the back and the front. Replace all of them where you hear the grinding, front or back.

Grinding noise from under tumbler


One of the retaining rings on the motor clamp/drum bearing assembly had probably broken, the machine must be taken apart to access to the motor/bearing assembly and fix the part.
The job should be done by a technician.

Using the machine in this condition can cause more damage to motor/ drum bearings.

Here is the diagram.
