Spinning Although it is level and not moving at all, the drum seems to be rubbing on something.  It sounds like the breaks are on.

Thank you, the belt was to loose and Whirlpool has replaced it. They actually changed the material they are using for the belt. Hopefully now it will not get worn out so fast.

When it is spinning open the lid and see if the spinning stops or if it is relational to the spinning of the drum. It sounds like either the clutch is bad or the brake shoes are rubbing or maybe something is stuck between the drum and the tank wall.

There is only two things that I can think of 1: The bearings are going or 2: something has got under the door seal and is in between the metal drum and the plastic cover (around the drum). Could be something like a coin or even a bra wire.

Spinning cycle sounds like it is rubbing against something

I take it there is a loud noise while in the spin mode.
That normally means your bearings x2 and seal need to be replaced. Truthfully it needs to be done by an appliance tech.

Frigidare ftw 647ghso thumping sound in one spot when i manually rotate drum sounds like its rubbing on something

Suspect a bad drum bearing or bent drum bearing shaft. When you rotate the drum, look for movement of the drum up or down while turning. If the drum moves suddenly, suspect the drum bearing. If it slowly moves up or down during turning, suspect a bent shaft on the drum. In either case, it is a major teardown to remove the drum from the outer drum case. If still under warranty, take advantage! Hope this helps!

Sounds like the main drum bearings have gone, if you hold the the drum and can feel up and movement or it sounds noisy or rough when you turn it by hand then it is definately bearings gone.
Unless you know what you are doing ,I would not recommend a D.I.Y. repair.
