Question about Washing Machines
About 10 years old suddenly starting to make VERY loud banging noise seems to caused by drum's extreme movement during spin cycle.... help, can we fix this without too much $$$
No it is very expensive to repair. You have to buy the whole rear portion of the outer drum if it is the bearings. Or a tub spider which holds the inner tub to the spindle that spins it. it is a very labor intensive repair. you would also need the outer tub seal/gasket for reassembly. If you are a skilled mechanic you may be able to repair it cheaper than a new one, but be prepared to spent the better part of you weekend working on it.

Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete
and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in
excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

I have the same problem...the solution is called new washer. I was told it could be overhauled to the tune about $600...barrings are going out. Mine is just 7 years old and that's disappointing.

SOURCE: Loud dry sounding spin cycle
I had the same problem with mine. The noise was verry loud towards the end...2 years I was a happy camper with my top of the line Cabrio, and then started to do the noise, a friend who work on washers told me that it was the transmission and to let it bust it self and then fix it. I have a home service warranty that covers the washer and they send a tech to fix it, he fix the problem with the transmission but now I have a problem of UL Unbalance Load all the time and I have to be moving the cloth around and move the knob to drain and spin all the time to get the the machine to drain the water. good luck with your problem
