Are you still there
Ok when you get a noisy fault when its spinning its usually either down to the drum bearings or a loose concrete weight.
What you need to do when you are checking it out is remove the top and there you will see the top weight. Check the bolts on there are tight.
If so the lean the washer backwards and open the door and remove the clamp around the door seal and unlip it and there you will see the front weight. Check them bolts are all tight as well.
If the bolts are tight then just check the washer is level as in you cannot rock it side to side.
If all that's fine then the drum bearings will be the fault. As to fixing them then it depends on the model. The older models you can remove the drum and split them and replace the bearings. But the new models are now using molded drums were you cannot replace the bearings. All you can do is replace the complete drum which will be very expensive on this.
So check the concrete weights and see if they are loose and check its level and if that's all ok then its possibley the drum bearings at fault.
