Washer started smoking in the tub on high speed spin cycle, and knocking very loudly. Was wondering if it might be the bearing in the back is going out. Belt is good, door seal is good but a little warm after smoke and knocking. Any ideas please!

The knocking is when drum is going from front to back, then drum fills up with smoke.

Also it only does this when there are clothes in it. When it is empty,no smoke ,no knocking!
