Just moved 800 miles and when I hooked up my washer and dryer the washer started making a noise during the spin cycle. I have reviewed your page and the sound is not like a helicopter. I removed the back panel and the belt, when I turn the drive motor manually it makes a similar sound (but less intense obviously) I placed the belt back on and turned the washer on, it does all the functions correctly with no noise, the noise starts only during the spinning cycle and it does not stop until it is done. I think that the problem is in a ball bearing inside the drive motor, do I need to replace the entire drive motor? or u think that the problem is elsewhere ?

No, I did not know that I needed to do this, nor the shipping company we used :-(

(almost) all Front Load Washers require shipping bolts ..

 

from the Use and Care Guide - W10252714.pdf

 

"NOTE: If the washer is to be transported at a later date, call your local service center.

To avoid suspension and structural damage, your machine must be properly set up for relocation by a certified technician."

If you get the noise by rotating the motor shaft without the belt attached it could be a damaged rotor inside the motor, in which case you would have to replace the motor.  But moving the unit without the shipping bolts may have caused other issues.  Check the inner tub by opening the door and push up on the front lip of the stainless inner basket.  If there is any loose up or down movement the spinner support attached to the rear of the drum may have been damaged.  Also check the drain pump filter housing for any foreign object that might be hitting the impeller.
