Do this.  Open the front door.  Grab the upper part of the drum and try to rock it up and down.  Does it feel loose?  If so, you have a bad bearing and it's a major job to repair.

Good luck

Depends on the type of noise.
If the sound is that of a **growl** during spin---this is usually a failed HALL EFFECT SENSOR.
