Ok, your direct drive system is experiencing gear breakdown issues. the transmission(gearbox) is stripped and causing the grinding situation. The clutch is ruined as well. you may have some minor electrical motor trauma as well. i recommend disassembling the unit if possible, to inspect the direct drive and transmission/clutch assembly. you should see the drive/transmission under the drum assembly.

Check thoroughly for trauma spots. replace the direct drive assembly if damage is noticed.

There should be some kind of oil leakage around the drive assembly. inspect the motor as well.

If the motor is not smoking or humming, it should be fine. More than likely, it will be the drive and transmission assembly that will need to be replaced.

Please rate and have a great day:)

    Direct drive means it does not have a gearbox so what you are saying is total rubbish

Loud grinding noise only during the spin cycle.


Try looking at the solution for loud noise during spin with gray water in drain. This also sounds like the bearings on the shaft supporting the stainless steel drum, in the aft half of the outer drum.

Loud noise when it spins


Sounds like main drum bearing noise, try turning the drum by hand, if it feels rough or you can hear it grinding or rumbling, then it is the the main bearings that have failed..
You will probably need to call an engineer.
