Re: Front loader washing machine - noisy spin cycle
A service engineer told me he thought there was a piece of wire caught behind drum and to see if it worked its way out. It hasn't because I don't think he's right. On spin the noise is sometimes so loud it sounds like the bearings have gone. Today I removed the fluff filter and discovered what appears to be shreaded grey plastic. If I can get a copy of the machine spec I might be able to discover where this has come from. Sorry this is not a solution. But as your symptoms are so similar check your filter and see if its full of shreaded plastic.

not enough information Frank to answer
we need to know make , model year of manufacturer, top loader , front loader and have you checked for an object stuck between the wash drum and the outside container
if the machine is 10 years or more then consider a a replacement unit as the body holding the bearing will be corroded and may not be a replacement part
best get a quote from the service agent as to what is the best way to go

The rear bearing in most front loaders lasts an average of 5 years under normal usage. Spin the drum manually with your hand and seee if it is nice and smooth and quiet. If the bearing is ok it is probable that 1 of the shocks is broken on the bottom.
Had noise during spin cycle called for repair $79 dollors later its tub assembly its clamp on the back of drum cost $1000 dollors to repair so if you have 747 during spin cycle buy yourself a new machine.
If it is a front loader, then remove the rear panel, remove the belt, and soin drum by hand, if it feels rough, or is noisy and rumbling, then the main drum bearings have failed.
This is a major repair.
From the front of the washer, spin the drum by hand, and if it feels rough, or is noisy, or rumbling, then the main drum bearings have failed..
If no noise, then problem is elsewhwere.
Hope this helps.
It sounds like your drum bearings are about to go. I am not familiar with this model, but I would assume it is pretty much like all other front-loaders. Bearing kits can be purchased for all models but there is a great variance in cost eg. in europe €25-€75. It is also quite a difficult job to undertake for the sunday diy enthusiast as it involves stripping down the machine and removing the drum. If you are going to repair the machine as opposed to replacing it I would strongly advise doing it asap and continued use will cause the bearings to collapse rendering the machine irrepairable. Hope this helps.
Careful of overloading the front-loading washers. Too much of this will result in the bearings in the drum to go bad. When this happens, the rpms on the drum slow down due to belt slack. You can only see this with the back off of the unit and in the middle of the cycle. They do not sell replacement bearings...you'll have to buy the whole drum (bearings pressed inside) and for 1/2 the cost of a new washer. I hate front-loaders. I'll never buy one again.
drum bearings, check and investigate, remove drive belt and then rotate, if still noisy then yes its the drum bearings, if the noise stops when the belt removed the motor bearings are faulty
costly repair on most models, sorry
oh there is also the possibility there is something lodged within the drum cavity between the lining and the drum casing
