I have a speed queen, model swt110wm, it also says Alliance on the tag.  It's making a super loud noise in the spin cycle.  I haven't worked much on this type of unit, or the similar maytag units.  I'm suspecting it's the bearings but I don't know how many there are, what special tools I will need, and anything else that might help me.  I took a video, but when I tried it at home there's no sound so it wasn't worth posting.  Thanks for the help.

 where is the sound coming from??? top of the spin basket???? lower tub???    brake pads????..........there is a lower bearing, but the main seal would have to be leaking for water to get to the lower bearing...........Did you pull the panel and get yer eyes in there???...no special tools required.........Pin point the area of the noise is the place to start.........

I had the front cover off.  The noise was below the spin basket,  I didn't see any rust, standing water or signs of water above the lower bearing.  I didn't want to assume anything and wasn't sure if it's common for the upper and lower bearing to go out.

Thanks, I listened to the pump and it  sounded more like a dry bearing.  It wasn't a squealing or scraping, just really loud.  I thank you for your time and information.

spray a little wd 40 on the bearing cover  and see if you can change its tune so to speak.  A rumbling rolling sounds normally is a bearing.   chattering check clutch- pulley.   Replacing bearing requires seal and bearings.  Newer seals have special sealer will depend on age . Do not use anything else and must let dry.
