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!

Need to see a video to get a better idea of what's happening. Shoot with your phone and upload it to Youtube; post the link here.

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