I am having problems with the washer. When the drum rotates it makes a horrible noise, like a scrapping noise. I think the drum might off track, if this is possible. not sure if it was overloaded, but i never gotten an overload signal. Been trying to figure out if i can but drum back on track or if i need a service person to do this.. i like DIY stuff and saw there''s a panel at bottom of washer with phillips head screws, wasnt sure if i could do anything myself or not.

Thanks,
John Memphis, TN

If you could post a video, with audio, it would help us give an opinion. Often those noises are a death sentence for the outer tub and spin basket. Either the rear bearing fails, or the spin basket support breaks, and allows the spin basket to flail around wildly and even make contact with the inside of the outer tub.
