SOURCE: stainless steel drum loose
A loose inner drum usually indicates a failed rear tub bearing. The only solution is to replace the rear half of the tub. (which contains the bearing).... You can check if the pulley nut has come loose by removing the rear panel. There is a large nut that retains the belt pulley to the shaft of the basket.

Is this a HE2,5,4 model? Can you give me the model number from inside the door. If it's a front loader. The only way you can get it out is to totally tare it down, cement, springs, shocks, and crack apart the outer tub. Very very labor intense. Usually if the unit is out of warranty, the cost of a tech to do it isn't worth it. What's the issure with it?

do you mean up and down? or when you turn the drum like you are spinning it?if it makes a sound like an airplane takeing off or a train rolling through your house. you have a bad bearing which is a very exspensive repair.

Two possibilities, one that the drum broke off of the supporting shaft--very expensive part (but could possibly be welded) and a complete tear-down to fix. The second is that the main bearing just behind the drum is bad. You can replace the bearing--go to a bearing supply house with the old one--cost less than $20, plus full tear-down to remove and replace. We went the bearing route and years later is still working well. If you try to buy parts from GE, they want to sell you the whole outer drum assembly for many penny.
