Question about Dyson CRO1 Front Load Washer
This fault can be caused by the drum halves becoming tight .they move together due to limescale deposits between the drum spiders. the noise is most likely a failing drum bearing
if the plastic seal is damaged then it will need a new drum assembly
they are no longer available from dyson due to supply problems
you may be able to get another machine from ebay and fix yours using parts from each machine to make one good one

I'm sorry to say that tis
is potentially very bad news. the problem you describe is almost certainly
because the main bearing on the drum is worn out, allowing the inner drum to "flop about".
To test your bearings, open the door of the machine and by putting a little lifting pressure on the top of the inner drum, attempt to rock the stainless steel inner drum up and down.
The outer drum is mounted on springs and shock absorbers, so it will rock about (and it should do this) but the inner drum should not move up and down in relation to the outer drum. If the bearings are bad enough then symptoms will typically include:
A clonking noise as you lift and release the inner drum (this is the inner drum rattling on its bearings and or hitting the outer drum)
You will have become aware of the spin cycle becoming far noisier recently and possibly even a grinding crunching noise when the machine spins
The drum may feel like something is crunching or stopping you turning it when you spin it by hand with the door open
A leak from under the machine, which you will probably be able to trace to the back of the machine, coming from the centre of the drum. This is the result of the failing bearing allowing water to escape through the seal at the rear
