The cost depends a lot on the location you are in but not to worry this seems to be a mechanical fault and all what is required is good skill to remove the assembly and check , replace the bearings, check the shaft, bushes, seals for wear and reset.
With a manual check you can observe the wobbling of the drum and will prove that this is not steady due to the failure of the mechanical system comprising the spares mentioned.

A squealing sound from the drum when rotating

There are plastic nylon guides located on the front of the drum. Most likely they are wore down and the drum is rubbing against metal. You can get these online at appliance centers or at a local appliance center. All you need is the model number normally found inside the door frame.

My Haier 6kg AA washing machine keeps coming up with error code 1 what's the problem?

Hi Carys from retired Englishman in SW France,

For Haier error code 1 states 'door is not properly shut 20 seconds after program has started'
There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor becoming apparent requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Sounds like bearing and spider have gone, spider is the support on the drum which goes through the tub. then the wheel fits onto it. Open the door and see if you can lift the drum, if the drum lifts with a clunk or with ease then this will confirm the problem

Wire Scraping sound and sparks inside rear dryer drum area.

Probably the rear bearing has failed and caused the drum to rub against the heating element. Hey, is this the guy that said he heard a noise last month? LOL

Drum sounds like it's rubbing against metal

hi there....sounds as if youve got a bra wire etc trapped between the outer and inner the appliance door and carefully examine the inner drum you will possibly see the offending wire protruding from some one of the holes in the can either be removed by juggling it out or having an engineer remove it for you regards Sir Galahad
