your drum bearings have gotten water in them due to a bad lip seal on the back side of the inner drum,if you can buy the bearings and lipseal you can tear it down and replace these rusty noisy bearings,and leaking seal
The door seal on a front loader is usually part of the boot that seals the drum from the front panel of the machine. It is held on over lips on the door and outer drum. Pull the seal away from the front panel and it should reveal the lip, now pull the seal off the lip working around the whole area. Push the seal into the drum and work it off that lip too. Replacement is the opposite of the removal and just requires a little patience. (Take you old seal with when purchasing a new one to make sure you get the right part).
Most likely the Wheel Cylinder seals are leaking, you can replace the Rear Wheel Cylinder for $12.99 or you can just replace the seals, sold as a kit for $2.20, at most auto parts stores. Here are pics of both.

Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.
go on line find model number on the back of washer
you should be able to fine seal kit and yes a new seal kit well do the job you well have to remove the drum unclamp hoses and remove you may want to have repairman come do this.
If a washing machine is very noisy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on many washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. (Hotpoint and Zanussi in particular in my experience) To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings may have gone. There should be a constant rumble all the time the drum is revolving.
Another drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure can be a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) although this patch is not always present. There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust if water has got into the bearings.
this is general for all door seals - all are much the same.
disconnect from mains. take lid off
prise off the clamp holding seal to cabinet - usually a wire circle with a spring - and peel seal off cabinet. fold seal back inside drum
seal is held onto lip of tub with what is really a giant hose clip. undo this and the seal will come away from tub.
on new seal, lubricate the slot in the seal that goes onto the lip of drum with washing up fluid.
starting at top, enter the slot in seal on lip of tub. work your way round in both directions pushing slot onto lip. this is the hard part and it may take more than one attempt.
when seal is on all the way round, replace the clamp.
refix seal to cabinet (easy to do) and refit outer clamp.
test for leaks on rinse as water level is higher
I have a different suggestion based on my washer's similar problem. If the black stuff is powdery and localized at the back of the unit, more than likely the culprit is the drum pulley itself is warped, causing the belt to chafe against the drum. The black powder is rubber residue from the scraping of belt on plastic. No need to replace unit. New belt and new pulley run about $70 each.
You have a problem in the direct drum,also known as the front drum,or 3rd gear drum.The most common problem in that drum is the inner rubber lip seal shrinks and hardens and doesnt seal well.Alot of times it burns the clutches in the process,so i would advise just going ahead and rebuilding the entire trans,because if you just patch repair that drum,then next month it will be the other drum failing,and,and..Parts list,670 trans:Banner overhaul kit with steels.Filter.Bushing kit.Thrust washer kit.Remanufactured torque convertor.Look at the planetaries very closely too because they are bad about wearing excessively,and have seen some very bad low gear planet failures..
There is two bearings and a seal normally you access them from the front of the machine.does the drum sound rough when you turn it by hand,also if the drum moves back and forward the bearing may be loose in the outer tank assy which is a problem because the new bearing will do the same thing.Hope this helps.
