Question about Washing Machines
Machine started making a lot of noise and the medal tub inside is moving alot, and it does not spin very fast.
Sounds very much like the drum bearings have failed. It is not a DIY job I'm afraid. Up to date washing machines are now impossible to actually replace bearings and only way to repair is to replace inner and outer drum assembly. This is a 1/2 a day job at the least to a professional. Older machines.....you can replace the bearings but this still involves removing the outer drum ou from under the washing machine, and the a very normal bearing removal and replacement procedure. Make sure the bearings are knocked in very straight and not on the skew. Good luck

You can't tight up the tub. You should replace the damper pads that located beneath main support housing on base's machine. Goog luck !

* General tips
* Balance the load
* Level the machine
* Inspect the water pump for a blockage
* Inspect the coupling
* Inspect the transmission
* Adjust the drive belt tension
* Check the motor bearings
* Check the drum brakes
The above are possibly the general remedies for this problem.But possible if the problem still persists after this, possibly the drum bearings might have been damaged during the previous heavy vibrations.Please do post comments.Will be glad to help you out.Good luck.
