Question about Washing Machines
If it bangs it doesn't necessarily mean it is the bearing that is gone. It could just be a imbalance on the load inside. To check if bearings are gone open the door and at the rear of the door seal nearest the inner drum use your fingers to hold down the outer drum, will be at rear edge of seal, now use your other hand at the top pressing the inner drum edge and now press down on outer drum and up on inner drum. If bearings are gone her will be a lot of movement between the two. If no real evident movement then you can feel pretty sure it's not the bearings. Check suspension for signs of wear and check for loose weight block, also check for loose components inside the shell that may be hitting the outer drum. Could also be that the machine is unbalanced if the feet adjusters are not properly adjusted to level the machine correctly.
