Our washing machine makes a lot of noise when it is spinning. it sounds like a bearing or something is going bad.
Answer You can remove the access panel on the back of the washer, and inspect the tub bearing from there. Look for signs of a leak around it, also rotate the tub by hand, and see if there is dragging with the tub.

Loud thumping coming from machine during spin cycle. Machine is level and does not move when I try to rock it by hand. But when the thumping starts the machine starts to rock. I replaced the tub bearings a year ago. Is it the struts on the bottom or is it the support?
You will want to check the spinner support which may have broken and would cause the thumping noise. Check for lateral movement of the tub by pushing up and down on the inner tub. You can also remove the baffles and check to make sure that the bolts for the spinner support are not broken.
