VERY LOUD DURING SPIN. LOADS ARE BALANCED . WAS TOLD TO LOOK AT BEARING FOR LEAKAGE AND THAT MEANS A BAD BEARING. I JUST TOOK THE BACK COVER OFF THE MACHINE AND THE DRIVE BELT, WHEN I EVEN SLOWLY TURN THE PULLEY SOUNDS LIKE GRINDING GRAVEL. WHEN I SPIN FASTER IT STARTS TO SOUD LIKE THE BAD NOISE I HEAR DURING THE SPIN CYCLE. I THINK THE BEARING IS SHOT. IS THIS POSSIBLE EVEN THOUGH THE SEAL IS STILL GOOD?

might be a warped spin basket or the dampers could need to be replaced. could even be a bad spin bearing. if it was bearing, normally would be associated with a loud noise during the spin cycle though.
Hi - Try to rotate the drum when it is not in use, manually and see if you notice the sound as well. If you do the drum is not balanced and you would need a professional technician to diagnose the bearing and pulley system behind the drum for repairs.
Is it just during the spin cycle that it machine is noisy or the noise is less during the wash cycle? Also is the noise a thumping type of noise or is it more of a whining or steady noise? If is a whining noise, it probally means that water has seeped past the seal and corroded the bearing of the washer. The noise is the failing bearing.
YOU MEAN LOUD DURING SPIN CYCLE? IF THAT SO, WHAT KIND OF NOISE? BANGING NOISE MEANS YOU HAVE UNBALANCED LOAD OR ONE OF THE SUSPENSION IS BAD OR FELL OFF. GRINDING NOISE MEANS YOU HAVE A BAD TUB BEARING, TO REPLACE THAT, YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THE WHOLE REAR TUB ASSEMBLY, VERY COSTLY. MEANS YOU PROBABLY BE BUYING A NEW WASHER.
Usually this is due to either the drum support breaking or the back bearing being bad-neither easy to fix- or worth it. Try lifting the drum up and down, if it moves up and down they are bad. I see this a lot, and the price of repair isn't worth it. Craig
