Re: boot of the front loader washer
Not nessacerily, the bopot off would create leaks not noise, you can remove the lower aceess panel(3 screws across the bottom of unit) and have a look inperhaps one or more of the suspension/shock absorbers) has let loose

Disconnect power to the washer then tape the lid closed. Lay the washer carefully on its front panel on a padded surface then check the four suspension spring/rod assembly. Make sure the suspension doors are properly attached to the outer tub to prevent an off balance situation that may lead to the banging of the basket to the outer tub during the spin cycle. Also ensure the machine is balanced and properly or evenly seated on the floor.
Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that... 1. They are there and mount is solid. 2. If they are broken in 1/2. 3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken. 4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.
Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.
Replace/repair as necessary.
IF THIS IS A BRAND NEW INSTALLATION - be sure you have removed the basket shipping pins (4) that secure the tub during shipping.

It may be something that was in the wash and fell thru the holes in the inner drum. Check all the plastic agitators and make sure they are all secure and an attach bolt has not backed out of one and rubbing the outer tub. It will wear a hole in it fast if it is.
Usually when the bearings go bad, it gets very loud on the spin cycle, like a loud roar and sometimes clothes will have rust or grease stains on them.
I just replaced my tub bearings on my Frigidare and spent about $60. They are all pretty much the same. On mine they only list the complete rear outer tub assembly with bearings, but you can knock the old bearings and seal out and match them up at a bearing supply house or you can buy online. Online seems much cheaper. If you buy bearings, make sure you get ones with a -2rs on the end of the part number. ex. 6308-2rs. They are sealed and hold up much better in water environment.
I would give it a try, the junk man doesn't care if it comes in pieces or one big piece.
There are a couple online articles that can probably help you. Do a google search for 'washer rear tub bearings"
