Hi, if your H/P is noisy on the spin cycle, just open the door and turn the drum a few times. If you feel some play, or kind of loud huming noise, then it is the bearings, very, very common on H/P WMA's.

If you spin the drum by hand, and it is niosy and rumbling then the main drum bearings have failed.
If under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it repaired under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee, You just pay for labour and call out, cheapest option, it is not really a D.I.Y job, as it is quite involved, and entails a lot of work.
Please rate my advice.

What are the first two numbers of your serial number i.e.10 through 17. I’m an owner like you not a repair person….. but I have a very good feel for machine issues and the repair of the machine. See my ratings under this nick name FAV6800AWDIY and my old original nick name dh1200s.
The biggest problem with FIXYA is they don’t ask the user for Model or S/N of the machine. I can’t believe how many professional repair folks jump in with comments and they have no clue as to what machine is being discussed.
You may end up going with a replacement if it’s the Outer Tub Bearings. I would remove the tub and try to replace before I would junk a $1000 but that’s me you would need to decide. This a weak repair area for me I have not replaced the outer tub bearings on any of the three FAV66800A’s I own but I feel confident I could do it. I buy these cheap and repair for resale.
Have you had the Clutch Pulley removed/replaced in the past for dC or uC error code failure in Spin Cycle?
I would drop the Clutch Pulley out and clean up/re-lube the One-Way Roller Clutches and check for signs of a tub seal leak. Then with the Clutch Pulley out spin up the Wash Basket CCW as fast as you can by hand and listen for bearing noise of the Outer Tub Bearings. Let’s make sure the One-Way Roller clutch bearing is not the bearing noise source. See this post for removing the clutch and doing maintenance and replacement. Clutch Fix Post
I have to post rest of this comment as a comment. This forum is not geared up for DIY responses.
