Washer is very noisey while on spin cycle like a bad wheel bearing on a car.. but no error codes?

Very sad to say but i imagine this will either be a trapped item such as bra wire caught in the drum or if it sounds like Gatwick airport when it spins it's probably your bearing...can be very expensive to repair. You cannot buy a seperate bearing you have to get hold of a rear tub and drum which depending on where you go could set you back £600ish pounds.

Machine has become very noisey especially on the spinning programmes, is it time for a new one?

It could mean that either the bearings or the spider needs to be replaced. If you try to spin the wash basket by hand, does it turn smooth and quiet or do you hear a rumble sound? If it is noisy, it probally needs a bearing change. To change the bearing, the washer has to be taken completely appart to get access to the bearing. The parts cost are relatively inexpensive, but the labor costs is high due to the time to disassemble and reassemble the washer. If you are handy, and have the tools, you can buy the parts and do it yourself. You have to decide whether it is worth spending the time and money to fix or to purchase a new machine.

When my washer is on the last spin it is very loud, almost like it needs a muffler

You didn't say what model washer you have, but it sounds like you have a bad spin bearing. When bearing is bad it can be very noisey during spin, like a helicopter taking off. This means your washer needs a bearing and seals overhaul. This is generally a very expensive repair unless your washer is under some kind of warranty. The spin water seal has more than likely been slowly leaking, causing bearing to go bad.

Wheel bearings making funny noise

prop the wheel off the ground that has the noisey bearing involved. Turn the wheel by hand spinning it as fast as you can. You will hear different noises as it spins if bad. it could sound very smooth and when it hits a certain location the noise will come and go. If the sound is like scrapping metal instead check the inner brake caliper sheild. That could be bent instead causing this sound
