My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would like to assist you. If you open the door and grab the silver spin basket, can you push it up and down? If it feels loose and moves up and down, then you have a bearing issue and would have to replace the whole rear half of the outer tub (the bearing is a part of the outer tub). When front load washers sound like a jet getting ready to take off, that is usually a bearing issue. How old is the washer?
There is free movement back and forth, but It doesn't appear to move up and down very much if at all. It's about 4 or 5 years old.
If you spin the silver spin basket by hand, do you hear any noise? Like a grinding noise?
Just tried to move the washer. Seems to be filled with water. Running a drain and spin cycle now.
Nothing. When the washer went into the spin mode, the speed seemed to be fine, it was still extremely loud though.
