Question about Washing Machines
Everything works fine - but after a spin, a sound like rubber against the drum emitted. No garments visible in seal. Sound emitts with drum empty or full. Turning drum by hand makes same hottirble noise - near to front of drum. Any suggestions much appreciated.Chris.
Sounds like bearing have failed or the stainless steel drum has detached from its carrier open the door and try to move the drum up and down there should be no movement at all if there is machine will need to stripped down

The drive belt (or belts) of a washing machine may become worn or damaged, causing noisy operation or stopping the washer entirely. A damaged drive belt is easy to replace. Remove the back panel of the washer to gain access to the belt. To remove the belt:
Step 1: Loosen the bolt on the motor bracket and move the motor to put slack in the belt.
Step 2: Remove the old belt and stretch a new one into place on the pulleys.
Step 3: To put tension on the new belt, use a hammer handle or a short pry bar to push the motor into position while you tighten the bolt in the adjustable bracket. The belt should have about 1/2 inch deflection when you press on it at the center point, midway between the pulleys. If the belt is too loose, it will slip on the pulleys, causing the machine to malfunction. If the belt is too tight, it will wear very quickly and will probably become so hot that it will start to smoke or smell.
Loose pulleys can also cause problems. Most pulleys are fastened to shafts with setscrews around the hub of the pulley. These screws must be tight or else the pulley or belt will slip. The resulting malfunction may seem to be caused by a faulty motor, but it can be corrected by tightening the pulleys and adjusting the belt. For this reason, always check the belts and pulleys before working on the motor.

Hey check to see if you can move the drum by hand,, if you cant the the bearings on the drum have gone and it is seized ..
If you can turn it by hand then most likely it is the carbon brushes on the motor..
hope this helps

is it more like a roar or a train going by? if so your rear tub bearing is going out. very expensive have to replace the tub, basket, spinner ring and shaft and seals about 4 hrs for an exprienced tech to do took me 7 hrs to do for the first time. but it will be very close to $1000 to have done not much less to do it yourself.
