Well to change the drum bearing on your machine is pretty straight forward if you have some sort of mechanical grasp but pretty much impossible if you dont..
the procedure is

Then take out the soap draw and undue the 3 screws there.. remove the control panel by unclipping all the wires..
Then the front panel with door you have to remove the 3 screws at the top and 3 at the bottom undue the screws by the door lock and remove the ring around the door gasket and detach the gasket from the front panel.. then simply lift the panel upwards and it will come off..
the remove the rear panel..
Then undue the weights as it will make the job eaiser..
Then remove detach the rubber pipe leading int o the drum from the bottom of the soap draw..
then detach the wire from the solinoids at the back and unlip the little tube that is attache to the pressure switch don not remove the wires from the pressure swtich..
then at the rear of the machine behind a balck cover are the heater wires remove the cover and the wires. you will see at teh bottom of the machine that he wire are held to the drum via tie-clips remove cut all the clips as you will have to replace them after wards..

Remove rear panel of washer, slip the belt off, then try the drum to see if it turns, if it does, then the motor is the problem, if it does not, then the main bearings have siezed, or there is something fast between the inner and outer drum..
If it was noisy on spin prior to this happening, then it is more than likely the main bearings that have siezed.
Plz rate my solution.
