(1) The tub bearing is mounted in the middle of the outer tub. The tub bearing helps to keep the inner tub spinning smoothly. Replacing the tub bearing is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. If the tub bearing is defective, i recommend replacing both the outer tub and bearing.
Guess it's a bearing in the drum, though just my appreciation. If you are not a tech in washing machines, you should call a reapir service to get it dismounted and replaced
Watch some videos about issue. Take note that you are not specifying your make an model and procedure might be somwhat different for your particular washing machine.
I had a similar issue, had a bad bearing. A quite frequent failure int this device. Only way to diagnose is dismounting it
These are not properly your model but see some videos how to do it:; might help to understand the job
Sounds very much like the drum bearings have failed. It is not a DIY job I'm afraid. Up to date washing machines are now impossible to actually replace bearings and only way to repair is to replace inner and outer drum assembly. This is a 1/2 a day job at the least to a professional. Older machines.....you can replace the bearings but this still involves removing the outer drum ou from under the washing machine, and the a very normal bearing removal and replacement procedure. Make sure the bearings are knocked in very straight and not on the skew. Good luck
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.
