A service engineer told me he thought there was a piece of wire caught behind drum and to see if it worked its way out. It hasn't because I don't think he's right. On spin the noise is sometimes so loud it sounds like the bearings have gone. Today I removed the fluff filter and discovered what appears to be shreaded grey plastic. If I can get a copy of the machine spec I might be able to discover where this has come from. Sorry this is not a solution. But as your symptoms are so similar check your filter and see if its full of shreaded plastic.

On spin cycle has a very noisy bearing sound what is cost of replacement bearing/& the cost of getting it installed


not enough information Frank to answer
we need to know make , model year of manufacturer, top loader , front loader and have you checked for an object stuck between the wash drum and the outside container
if the machine is 10 years or more then consider a a replacement unit as the body holding the bearing will be corroded and may not be a replacement part
best get a quote from the service agent as to what is the best way to go
post again as posts are not linked

Loud grinding noise when on when it starts to spin?


If it is a front loader, then it sounds like the drum bearings have failed, spin the drum from the front by hand, if it feels rough or is noisy, then bearings have failed.

We heard a large BANG and now it is so noisy


The rear bearing in most front loaders lasts an average of 5 years under normal usage. Spin the drum manually with your hand and seee if it is nice and smooth and quiet. If the bearing is ok it is probable that 1 of the shocks is broken on the bottom.

GE profile electric dryer, sounds like something is stuck in drum


Heating problem is most likely caused by one strand of your heating element is burned out. Heating element will have to be replaced if that's the case. Noise you are hearing is most likely coming from worn front and / or back bearing. Dryer has to be completely disassembled for either repair.
