Hello, W/D here.
The problem is most likely in the motor/pump assembly, and they're sold as a unit. Prices range from about $130 to $220 or so. You can look up your model on this site for comparison shopping, if you decide to look somewhere else.

If you are handy with tools, this is a job that is intricate, but doable. I have made a similar replacement on a KitchenAid dishwasher, where the noise started out low and increased over a period of several months to sound, as you said, EXTREMELY LOUD. Six months later, the noise started again, and increased again. I changed out the machine after that.
It might be worthwhile to get a local tech to give it a listen, and a free estimate, and decide whether to repair or replace it.
Best regards, --W/D--

When on a fast spin it is extremely loud, too loud...


Water in bearings causes rust, and rust in bearings creates noise...This is the most likely reason for the noisy spin....Check for any slop in inner drum....Bearings and seals and likely the shaft probably need to be replaced....Quite a big and complex job....Good luck....Nomess

The motor arm seems extremely loud. Machine is


Run the machine in another room.
It is due to Cuisinart's cheapo motor.
Also try 1/2 to 2/3 fill batches.
Put a book and a medium food can on top of motor arm to keep it from lifting while mixing.

Brother sewing machine - Galaxie 8015, running rough and loud.


Oil every moving part. Clean out all the lint (Air cans are wonderful for this) and change the needle, If that fails...get a tune up from a professional.
