This means that the drum support has collapsed due to corrosion.
It entails a complete strip down of washer, and replacing the drum shaft,and possibly new drum bearings and shaft seal also.
It is quite an involved repair, and not to be undertaken lightly.
If the washer is more than 5 years old, it would be more eonomical to replace it with a new washer.

Kenmore 62463 / 721.62463201 Stainless Steel 1200 Watts Microwave. My daughter used it as a timer for reading and set it to cook for 30 minutes with nothing in it. It turns on but is loud and no longer...

You probably fried the magnetron(it actually makes the microwaves that do the cooking). I bet you will find the magnet is broken(from excessive heat). There should be a diagnostic guide sheet somewhere inside the housing(due to running production changes,this is a guide for the pros to test the power supply,magnetron,etc with an ohmmeter to determine which is defective.

Easiest way to change drum bearings

I have changed the drum bearings on our Creda Excel 1200 V120VW. Not a simple job by any means.
The machine had to be just about totally stripped to get at the drum.
Before starting beware of sharp edges on just about any part of the machine
Remove all panels, top, rear, front facia, front panel including door, motor, powder draw
The secret is to remember to take photos or make drawings of the position of all the electrical wiring, hoses, covers and any other components you may be removing for access. Keep all you components together, it saves hunting for them later or worse still not refitting them.
Once the drum is out of the washer the drive pulley has to be removed. It is secured by means of a 30mm af nut which has also been fastened with thread locking fluid. Fortunately I have an electric ratchet gun, otherwise it would have required heat on the nut to defeat the locking fluid. The pulley is also threaded and was unscrewed with the aid of an application of WD40.
The front of the outer drum is unclipped and removed, the inner drum can then be removed by replacing the nut flush with the end of the thread, to prevent damage, and tappinng the drum out with a soft faced mallet.
This done you then have to remove the old bearings and seal. This is done be means of a drift and hammer, taking care not to bruise the area where the new bearings will be fitted.
The old seal may have to be destroyed by a sharp screwdiver or a proper seal removal tool.
When the bearings are out clean all areas with fine emery, lightly grease the bearing recesses and fit the new bearings and seal. Take care when refitting the stainless drum back into the outer drum not to turn the lip on the seal.
Now it's just a simple matter of re-assembly, make sure all parts remove are re-fitted in the correct sequence.
Another tip is not to put machine and all panels, ie; top cover and rear panels, back in place until the washer has been run and tested and inspected, to make sure there are no leaks and the machine goes through the cycles as it should.
Finally good luck!!!!

Do I have a stainless steel drum in my washing machine?

If the drum is unpainted and a magnet is able to stick to it, the drum is steel. If there it is shiny and uncoated, more than likely it is stainless. Checxk web site documentation

This will either be a blocked pressure vessel, or the brushes on the Motor. I am not sure where the pressure vessl is on this model But you will find it buy taking the top of and finding a round or oval shaped component with a plastic tube running from it. carefully pull this tube of and blow down it. it should be clear. unplug machine first.
