Washer drum making loud noise when spinning

Reach into the drum (on a front-loader)and push upward to see if it moves at all, you should feel no play where the drum support shaft passes through the bearings... The bearings will "roar" loudly during spin if the main seal has leaked water into them... Top-load washers will exhibit the same roaring if the seal fails in them also.

I have a kenmore frontloading washer, during the spin cycle a noise like grinding can be heard, grinding can also be heard when turning drum by

its the drum bearings that support the inner drum,you need to replace these bearings,the problem with this is it was manufactured by frigidaire for kenmore and you cant just buy the inner bearing and lip seal as it comes with the outer rear half of the outer.tub where as with maytag neptune or whirlpool duet you can drive these bearin gs out and re-use the tub half,but you can't buy just the bearings and seal for a frigidaire front loader

Whirlpool Duet Washer Model WFW9400SZ00 bangs only during spin cycle.

Yes you are exactly right, these bearings have failed & are causing the noise very common problem with whirlpool front loaders. very expensive to repair worth while looking into replacing instead of repairing as it will just happen again.The new LG machines are the best in my opinion.

On spin cycle it it has a loud noise like bearings

That will be the bearings then...

It's impossible to give you any more specific advice as you haven't stated a make and model. On some machines the drum bearings can be replaced, on many modern machines they are sealed for life and are non-replaceable and when they fail the rest of the machine is usually pretty well worn out as well.

On those domestic front loaders which can have new bearings fitted, bearing replacement is a very labour-intensive job and is often not cost effective. On commercial machines it's usually far more straightforward. on most top loaders (excluding top loading machines with a horizontal front-loader style drum), bearing replacement is relatively straightforward.

Either one of your springs have broken at the top of drum.
Or the dampers under the drum have failed.
Possibly both.
You can get to your top springs by removing lid.
Dampers access is via the underside.
Remember to disconnect power and water before opening up machine.

Bearings are loud when drum is spinning

well if its a front loader or a top-loader washer sometimes the parts are covered under warranty parts only.....check 2nd threw fifth year warranty in owners manual can be almost the cost of a new one if parts aren't under warrantty .... and most top-loaders require a spanner wrench a specialty tool to perform repair.... usualy seal bearing average $60.00 to 120.00 dollars each and around $ 130.00 in labor sometimes more for top loaders and ... frontloaders it usually requires seal rear tub with bearing and spider drum support bearing usually$60.00 rear tub with seal $160.00 an upto $225.00 and spider support $80.00 an up to $160.00 thats just parts we havent even got to labor ..... labor about 2 hours....depends on local rates...

Loud clanking noise during spin cycle. Will not

If it is a front loader, then remove the rear panel, remove the belt, and soin drum by hand, if it feels rough, or is noisy and rumbling, then the main drum bearings have failed.
This is a major repair.

I'm afraid you will need to replace the bearings and seals. Shop around for decent prices.
Good luck.

Whirpool top loader unbalanced spin cycle

First change the springs - both the leveling and suspension. You may also need to change a few other parts on the brake and drive tube including the thrust ring. But replace the springs and let see what happens.
