It depends on the type of sound. It could be felt pads going bad or the bearings. The felt pads are fairly easy to change as they are in the front under the drum and you just need to get the front off and replace them. The bearing assembly is a different story. You need to take the front and the top off (or sometimes the the top will tilt back on hinges) to access the drum you will have to remove your drum to get the bearing assembly off. The other problem could also be the pulleys underneath the dryer which can usually be accessed through a rear panel. I recommend running the dryer and listening really hard for where the sounds are coming from, you may have one of the problems you may have all of them.

Samsung front load washer, jerks and makes noise when it first starts spinningthen it smooths out, and works fine.

on many machines that is normal, the shaking continues until the load is distributed relative evenly around the spinning drum. It is also possible it is the main bearing but I am not sure. The noise I am talking about would have been there since new. These links may help. Washer has noise during spin cycle Whirlpool Maytag Sears GHW9100LW1 Washer is Making Loud Noise

Noisy spinning

First make sure that the load is balanced, if you are washing and spinning a dense load like trainers etc this can cause an imbalance. If you are washing a duvet cover or a pillowcase, make sure that the loose clothes washed with it haven't migrated inside the cover or case, this happens so easily. It is always worth checking that the support feet are all touching the ground when the washing machine is empty as this can cause excessive noise
hope this helpsKind regards ki

Machine making loud noise on spins cycle

Well, the only time the washer (speedqueen) is noisy on spin is if one or both the bearings are faulty. Normally when you get a leak, it means the hub/flange and seal kit need replacement and this also includes the top bearing because when soap suds leak past the seal assembly it drips directly onto the bearing. The acidic properties in the soap suds eats the grease in the bearing which ends up becoming defective. One can also get an anoying squeek if a bottom base gasket is worn or removed. This would be audible even on wash cycle.Conclusion, check the bearing on top of gearbox.

it has the wheels that hold the drum up the shops call them tires alot of dryers take the same ones
i changed mine and it wasnt that hard and the tires were 18$ i took the drum out but you probably can get at em from behind. they get big flat spots on them

Kenmore Washer: Noisy Spin Cycle

if this sound is similar to a jet engine then it may be best to get a quote from your local repair man to see if repairing the unit will be worth it. there are a lot of steps in fixing this problem and you may be able to do this yourself but it is pretty difficult.
sound like you need a new rear bearing and a spin support shaft

GE Top load washer 15years old. noisy when spinning

washer making a load cluck noise when the spin cycle starts.
It only happens when the motor turns slow for the first minute during the spin cycle. Otherwise it works fine.
if the motor is proper then the bearings in the motor got rusted and that needs replacement.the beasrings are located on the back of the motor.
