Hi this is going to be one of two problems one is cheap and easy the other expensive and hard to do unless you have special tools.
first i give you cheap and easy problem this could be that the belt from the drum to the motor is slipping under the pressure of the spin cycle these are cheap to buy and only take ten min to fit thats if that is the problem.
The second problem is expensive and hard to do unless you know what you are doing this problem is the bearing on the drum this problem is best getting solved asap as if left will damage drum and usually the motor it damages them as it seizes in the drum causing the motor to over heat and can cause a fire.
If you open the door and turn the drum by hand see if you can hear the noise and also check to see if it turns smoothly it wont be really easy to turn but should feels smooth.
If this is fine then you are lucky and will find that the belt needs replacing my even need adjusting as some you can adjust like a fan belt on a car hopefully you know what im going on about if not contact your local repair shop and they should get you the part for you and tell you if it can be adjusted.
Let me know if you need further assistance ok

Squeaking washing Machine during spin cycle


Hi
Loks that your machine is pretty old and hence the belt has hardened making a squeaking noise.
Good fix is get a new drive belt.
OR
Quick fix is you could put some oil on the drive belt..... it will work for now but not a permenant solution.

Very loud rumbling noise during spinning


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.This will solve your problem.

Squeaking/grinding/rattle noise during wash and spin


That sounds like a clutch problem - probably just worn and need replacement. Will definitely need to pull to find exact fault.
