Question about Washing Machines
I have a Indesite WDG1295W washer drier, it is making a lot of noise as the drum revolves. I think it could be the bearing, is it worth repairing?

SOURCE: Neptune washer load noise.
I do know there is a set of bearings on the drum drive shaft. There is an inner and an outer. Some places mention that these bearings are no longer available. However, I found on ebay a gentlemen who sells these bearing and the seals in a kit for about $80.00. It comes with instructions on how to repair and will save a lot of money. I have done this once already to the same washer, now I am doing it again. If you search on ebay maytag neptune parts you will find his listing for a bearing kit. He also describes the jet engine noise.

SOURCE: noisy bearing on drum
This is not an easy job on any washing machine. The AEG is probably the same as most washing machines in that it has two bearings on the shaft at the rear of the drum but it also has a carbon water seal on the inside and usually you will need to change this too as if you disturb the bearings it will surely leak. If you have never done this before it can be dreadfull. If your drum has bolts and a seal at the back to withdraw the inner drum and back plate out the back of the machine then you are lucky and you should be able to do the job in about two hours. If you dont have a removeable back on the drum you will have to strip the whole machine and remove the drum supports and hydraulic pistons at the bottom. All hoses and pipes and wiring attached to devices on the drum will have to come out as well as the door seal and soap dish rubber connector. Good luck.

It is definately the main drum bearings that have failed
To be honest with you , if the washer is more than 4 or 5 years old, you would be wise to call it a day, and purchase a new one, as it is an expensive job to put right..Sorry to bring you doom and gloom.
