All of a sudden when the machine spins it sounds like a plane about to land in the kithen.
Not sure where to start looking, any ideas?
The machine is still washing clothes fine, just very noisy. Its nearly 3.5 years old.
Thanks in advance
Sounds like the ball bearings usually located in the rear wall between the inner tub and the belt drive pulley are bad most likely from corrosion leading to wear of the bearing.
This usually occurs if water seals fail and soapy water finds it's way into the bearing.
I suggest you get the experts to handle this rather tough job.

You're stuck with a water landing (ditching). Hopefully at altitude the pilot can see a ship and make the landing in the vicinity of the ship for quick rescue. It so rare for a plane to lose power to all engines though that you should never hear of such an incident. Depending on the route, however, Bermuda may be within gliding distance.
Are you running the Flight Simulator X, or the gold edition? The key difference here is that the Gold Edition has the Acceleration Expansion pack, and therefore recommends that you do not install the SP1-SP2, as the software outdates both the service packs. If so, uninstall the service packs and that should fix your problem!
Sounds like the counter balance is off on the washer. If you tilt the washer back underneath by the motor should be a large brick like block. Make sure it is fastened to the frame tight and if it is check to see if all the level adjustments on the legs are adjusted properlly to keep it from moving ,banging around when its spins in the spin cycle.
Many times there are tentions springs under the washer too to adjust the weight make sure one has not come loose.
I have had this problem asked a lot and the answer always seems to end up the same. the legs are not perfectly level or the washing machine is on a wood floor. These units have no forgiveness for a floor that has any flex at all. A way to confirm your problem is you can take it out to the garage adjust the legs and run the unit. It almost always runs fine on concrete. Sorry there is not an easy fix for this. Please rate this answer if it helps, thanks, David
It sounds like the bearings are going bad. Try spinning the drum with your hand while it is empty. It should spin nice and smooth. If the rotation feels a little rough and noisy, you might have a problem. You can double check by taking the drive belt off and try shaking the pulley. If there is "play" when shaking the pulley, the bearings are most likely toast. The inner stainless drum rides on two bearings which sit in the rear of the outer plastic drum. The whole plastic drum and bearings come as one piece and go for $150. It would cost about the price of a new maching to have someone come out and repair it for you. It sounds like kenmore has had a bearing problem which is pretty rediculous considering how much these things cost. Sears said, "those tend to go in a few years", which is criminal especially since the warrenty is usually conveniently exopired by the time this problem happens. If you are handy, have a spare day, and can remember how to put a washing machine back together, go for it. I did it and it was not a fun time. There is a lot of sharp metal edges in the machine so wear gloves. good luck
