Question about Washing Machines
These are justt the standard type which you can procure from a tools hardware shop/auto spares.
You must remove the bearing and the seal , normally if there is noise you can clean with diesel and then oil /grease for smooth movement. If the bearing is broken or wobblingg then you can change.
The seals can be reused if it fits tight and the removal does not damage.
However if you think - as the best judge after observations- that it is bad , take them along to the spare shop to comparre with the type available.
The last option is to reach out to your dealer.

First of all, what kind of a loud is it making? Is it a loud squeak, clunk, bang, or jet engine sound?
If it is a loud jet engine sound, then your tumbler bearing is wearing out. You could try oiling it, but [probably you will have to replace it. It’s a big job and even if you do it yourself, the best and easiest way to do it is expensive.
I recommend first of all ordering a repair manual. Or at least see if the parts come with detailed instructions on how to take out the old bearing and install the new. You will probably have to replace the entire outer drum assembly. It's much more expensive in parts to do it that way than to just replace the bearings and seals, but much much easier and faster. Personally, I've replaced the entire drum assembly and also tried to replace just the bearings and seals. In the end I wasted the money on the bearings and seals and got an new assembly. I'd recommend just going for the new assembly and saving time.
