Your drum bearing is likely shot.
This is a big repair and better to get a new one with warranty.

The drum guides/rollers could be worn.

It must be disassembled and inspected.

If you can grab the drum & move it laterally - the bearings are gone.

Water entering machine but drum will not turn or start

Does the water just keep filling up, or does the water shut off after filling to a normal level?

If it just keeps filling, then your pressure switch or the hose leading up to the pressure switch is bad.

Does it make any unusual noises?

Why does my washing machine make a load noise on the last 6 minutes of the spin cycle..especially when I have bed linens in.

It is not unusual for a machine to make a lot of noise and jump about when washing sheets as they can sit out of ballance in the drum. That is why the drum turns to and fro and short spins trying to balance the wash. If how ever the noise is rumbling like a big lorry going by, then I'm afraid it sounds like your drum bearings have gone. Replace bearings by an engineer or replace machine either is expensive.

Dryer is making a noise when running. Will I mess up the dryer if I still use it?

It will be better to take a closer look than to ignore the issue to prevent higher damage. The drum could have gone eccentric due to a fault in the bearings or the mounting. check the motor shaft, the bearings, the belt drives the suspension. With power removed and manual turning the noise can be confirmed,

Dryer works, but makes noise.

There are a lot of moving part that can cause noises or vibration when get worn out.
  • Make sure dryer is level, and on a secure floor, and that nothing is leaning against the dryer.
  • Check all exposed screws, and make sure they are tight. Loose cabinet screws may cause a squeak.
  • Check for foreign objects below the lint filter:-Remove lint filter, and look down opening. If you need to stick your hand down the opening to remove an object, be careful because the edges could be sharp. It would be advisable for you to wear a pair of work gloves.
  • Foreign objects in the drum front seal and worn or loose drum slides can cause a metal scraping noise as the drum rotates.
  • Check for foreign objects in the drum. (Coins, buttons and zippers will make a rattling sound as they roll around in the drum)
  • A frayed or damaged belt will make a thumping sound.
It is normal to hear the sound of the drum as it turns. If your dryer is making unusual noises and the above suggestions do not resolve the situation, discontinue use of the dryer until it has been checked by a qualified servicer. Continued use may cause wear of other parts making the repair more costly.

My dryer is making a funny noise, like there is friction on the drum and the back is unusually hot.

GE has some gliders the drum turns on they are teflon and wear out. When they do it will start rubbing and making noise. The drum don't turn as easy as it should. G E is very bad about this sometimes it will wear into the plastic that holds the durm up and the whole thing has to be replaced. I wouldn't buy a G E old ones are ok.

Loud grinding noise when machine operating

The most common cause of this is the main drum bearing seal has failed and water has washed all the grease out of the drum bearing and knackered it. You will hear a loud roaring noise on the fast spin when this has happened. As it's certainly not a 5-minute-job, it's not economic to have this fault repaired on an older machine if you are paying for the repairs yourself. Get a new machine.
It is fairly unusual for balance weights to come loose as they are usually held tight by locking nuts. I've seen it happen but not very often. Sometimes they break off the drum completely. Symptoms of this are loud knocking noises, the machine attempting to leave the building while on a fast spin and a heavy piece of metal/concrete on the floor under the machine!

Thanks for contacting

When spinning washer making an unusually loud sound. Sounds like a bearing. Can you confirm?

Does it make the noise when spinning the drum by hand? If so, chances are you're right, the bearing is shot. No way to confirm without taking it apart and isolating the shaft and bearing then checking for noise or play. Good luck.

Hotpoint TDC32 Dryer makes a noise like plates sliding

Could be coins in the drum.  Might also be a bad roller bearing.  Hard to tell.
