During the spin cycle the drum moves at a higher RPM and so the counter weight of the clothes within can make the drum rotate eccentric or out of sync.
So check if the belt is loose on the motor, checck if the spindle is tight with friction or the drum assembly suspension is out of alignment.
You must check the reason with the following points to confirm the drum spinning making noise. check point of noise , is this on hitting the sides , or from the motor, any foreign objects or the drum spindle. But you are the judge with a first view. Use good lighting to look out and confirm the fault.
Remove drum drive belt, and spin drum by hand, if there is any resistance,. or it feels rough or noisy, the the main bearigs have probably failed.
If it is o/k then check motor for worn or noisy bearings,
Please rate my solution.
To start ensure that machine is well balanced, and that the load is well distributed inside the drum.
If the problem is not balancing, then the most common is a broken drum bearing spider or a bad drum bearing. A symptom of drum bearing problems is the drum having excessive play when you spin by hand. Also struts and springs must be checked.
Open the washer door and spin the drum by hand, if it feels rough or noisy and rumbling, then the main drum bearings have failed. There should be little or no noise when you spin drum
This is a major repair, and I would not recommend a D.I.Y solution.
Other possibility is there is something in the pump, but you would only hear this when the pump is working.
drum bearings, check and investigate, remove drive belt and then rotate, if still noisy then yes its the drum bearings, if the noise stops when the belt removed the motor bearings are faulty
costly repair on most models, sorry
oh there is also the possibility there is something lodged within the drum cavity between the lining and the drum casing
usually a noisy machine means either the main bearings have gone or the motor has got damaged/worn in some way. to check the main bearings try lifting the drum with the hand from inside or rotate the drum with the hand to see if the rumble can be felt.
i cannot think what else would cause a loud humming though.
im confused as to why you think no drum rotation would be caused by bearings. typically worn bearings would cause noisy spin. only if bearings were completely seized would that cause no drum rotation.
can you rotate drum by hand? if so bearings are not seized.
can you hear motor rotate when you select spin?
if not, then likely cause is motor brushes.
do these simple tests and get back to me if you want.
and bearings are quite difficult to replace on this machine
Sounds like the switch which cuts the machine off when the load is unbalanced. My guess is that:
This switch is being triggered too easily
The springs holding the bowl up are either stretched or one is broken;
The machine may not be level.
