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.

SOURCE: Works fine but very noisy
The pulley will come off. You will need to use a pry bar or wheel puuler to remove it. It take a some pressure to remove this, but it will come off.
Just work with it.

SOURCE: noisy drum bearing also play
It's very difficult to advise on a noisy washing machine because you can't describe noises accurately enough. People often describe the same noises quite differently.
Generally though, if a washing machine is rumbling, and noisy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings have probably gone.
Another drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure is a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust.
Other causes of a noisy washing machine are coins and other obstructions inside the water pump. This will cause noise when the washing machine is emptying the water. Coins or other obstructions can get trapped between the outer tub and the inner drum. This would produce a lot of noise on spin as they coins get tossed around inside. Usually, spinning the drum by hand will not reproduce the noise in the case of coins as the coins drop to the bottom of the tub when the washing machine isn't spinning.
A light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand is usually a bra wire trapped between the tub and drum.
A high pitched squealing or harsh noise can be motor bearing wear. This can also be checked for by taking the belt off and running the motor alone.
A knocking noise can be a loose tub weight. This would be worse with heavy loads and would not be present on spin with no washing in. This is because the knocking noise is caused when the tub (or outer drum) shakes about on spin. Without washing inside the drum the tub doesn't move. Another symptom of a loose tub weight is grey concrete dust under the washing machine.
It's very tempting to ignore noises while the washing machine is still otherwise working. Some noises can be ignored as they will not develop into serious faults. Other noises, if left, will cause extensive damage and can end up costing considerably more than if tackled early or these days writing the washing machine off. Of course the problem is that you can't tell which of the categories a noise falls into - so ignore them at your own risk.
