The are 2 bearings on this machine, usually the large bearing with the seal goes first , the seal leaks and water gets into the bearing causing the noise, like a plane taking off on the spin cycle. Bearings will go bad from natural wear and tear. 5-7 years need to replace them.

always repalce as a set, large and small bearing and new seal.

dont for get to pack the new bearings will grease.

Need to replace bearings in A O Smith Century #7-350367-01-OJ 220 a/c motor 1 Phase. Need Parte Diagram

Just thought I would mention - most motor bearings are fairly standard ball bearings and obtaining replacements as motor spare parts can be a very expensive method. Obtaining replacements from a local bearing supplier or even online can represent a considerable saving.

Bosch 4000 table saw motor schmatic

I have found the most common issue is a bad field with the second being a bad rear armature bearing and last being a bad speed control.
Most of the time slow speed or even running backwards is a bad field (part #2 on the breakdown) #1619PA5590
Remove the cap on the end of the motor & the 2 carbon brushes.
Remove the 4 screws holding the motor to the frame and pull it straight off.
Check the bearing on the end of the armature to ensure it is not frozen or stiff. If it is also check the rubber boot that sits over the bearing and the motor housing itself to ensure it is not melted.

Ave a loud noise coming from dryer when turned on. How do I know which part I need to replace. And where would I get the part(s)

You did'nt discribe the noise, could be a few things based on noise. Thumping could be a bad drum support wheel, Squeeling could be Teflon bearing strips on lower lip of front drum end, or motor bearings, or tensioner pulley, or belt slipping cause by weak or broken tensioner spring, for starters. A good source for ALL appliance parts is WWW.PARTSCLINIC.COM must have model & serial number, located behind door upper left,or in back on a tag.

Runs okay but is starting to make loud sharp clanking noises

Clanking sound is bearing that has gone bad in a treadmill, unplug the treadmill remove the motor shroud. Use a long handled screwdriver and touch it to a non-moving portion of the front and rear rollers and motor and then put your ear up to the handle and the screwdriver will amplify the noise of the part so you can find out which part is making the noise. If it is a bearing, it will be obvious which part is the problem because the grinding or clacking noise of the bad bearing with be amplified by the screwdriver

When washer goes into spin cycle it sounds like a grinding noise that is very laud like a dry bearing very laud

This sounds like it's your clutch that is worn out and rubbing metal to metal. It has pads similar to a centrifugal clutch in small motors like chain saws etc. Your model number is needed for more information.
It's usually stamped on a small tag in a visible location on your appliance.

I don't think they can be, but, also take a look at the fan bearing assembly too. You should be able to isolate if the noise is from the motor bearings or blower bearings.
