Tips for a great answer:
A solution to number 1. is simply to distribute the wash load evenly.
Solution no. 2. will require removal of the rear carcass cover to access the drum suspension connections. Sheet metal screws are the usual fasteners for this cover. First unplug the electrical supply. Get someone to roughly force the drum to move laterally side to side and up-down, from the front of the machine, while you look and listen from the rear, for signs of looseness at suspension joints. A perished rubber bushing may have partially disintegrated so look for signs of black rubber dust or debris. Another rare possibility may be excessive play in the bearings which support the drum. Excessive play in the bearings---if severe---may be felt again through very gentle lateral drum movement, but first proving no play exists in the suspension joints beforehand, otherwise confusion will result.
Solution No. 3. requires inspection of both drive belt and drum pulley wheel for any signs of wear or cracking. First have someone rotate the drum by hand from the front of the machine while you check out the belt and pulley---mind your fingers! If you still haven't located the source of the noise, try running the machine empty of water through its spin cycle while you observe from the rear. Keep your hands well clear of moving parts while doing so.
