Getting a real loud noise when spinning - sound like the bearings may have aproblem. How do I check

with the unit empty spin the drum by hand, you should feel the resistance of the drive belt and motor and hear the whine from the motor but nothing else, no grinding or lumpiness.
You can usually tell by excessive dirt at the back of the drum aswell right in the centre where the bearings are. If they are breaking up they tend to make a mess and break up the housing or shaft too

Washer whining when washing and spinning leaving brown stains on clothes

Turn water off. Remove hoses and clean the rust out of the strainers at hose end. If they are clogged they will sound funny when water goes through them.

Front load washer makes whining noise on spin cycle

Check to make sure that your machine is still level using a regular carpenters level. If it is not, You may be able to level it by screwing on the legs until it is level. But carefully and not too much at once.
