Its only going to get worse. nothing you can do outside of repair or replace the unit
I'm gonna tear it apart and try to see what I find. Other than what I have with it it works perfect and was just given to me so I'll attempt the repair first lol

If the tub seal is leaking (which causes the bearings to fail - usually makes loud roaring noise during high spin) then you'll usually see oily/dirty residue on the Rotor and/or Stator (must remove rear panel).
If the Spider is broken on the Basket/Drum then usually the front end is not aligned (look at 360 degree gap between basket and rubber door seal/gasket before you rotate and while rotating basket).  Broken spider usually causes the Basket to rub against (and peel away rubber from) the Door Gasket and usually causes a burning rubber smell during high spin.

And it's a pain in the butt to replace the bearings.  Doing it now, only the video doesn't tell you about the shock absorbers and they come apart.  According to the LG service manual, if they come apart you need to replace them.  The rear one was deformed, so I'm ordering new ones.  Appliance pros won't do Saturday delivery but Part select will.  Oh hell, I just found the shock absorbers for $10 less on Amazon.
