You are describing shot bearings.
It should be perfectly possible to replace the bearings if you are able to press them out of the spider.
The usual fix is to obtain a replacement spider, your local domestic appliance repair shop should be able to supply an exchange unit.
If you attempt the repair you should check that the drum has not damaged the water heaters as it may have been these that it was grinding on.
