Chosen Solution

My bet would be the Pulley or Drive Pulley. If you give us the model number I can probably find the part.

Tub Bearing

If the washer is making a loud noise the tub bearing might need to be replace. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. The manufacturer recommends that if possible the complete outer tub and bearing be replaced rather than attempting to replace just the bearing in the tub. If the bearing is bad the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

Tub Seal and Bearing Kit

If the washer is making loud noise the tub seal and bearing kit might need to be replace. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. If the bearing is bad the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the tub seal and bearing kit will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

Rear Drum with Bearing

If the washer is making a loud noise the rear drum with bearing might need to be replace. On this washer the bearing might not be sold separately, the entire rear drum might have to be replaced. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. However, the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

If the bearing is bad the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

Drive Pulley

If the washer is making a loud noise the drive pulley might be worn out, cracked, loose or bent. Remove the drive pulley and inspect it carefully. If it is damaged or defective replace it.

Pulley

If the washer is making a loud noise the drive pulley may be worn out. If the drive pulley is loose or wobbling it will need to be replaced

U-Joint Kit

If the washer is making a loud noise the U-Joint may have failed. This is the primary drive mechanism for the agitation motion in this washer. Although this is not a very difficult repair for a DIY'er with some experience, the part is expensive and so it may be worth considering a new washer.

Motor Coupling

If the washer is making a loud noise the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and transmission.

Clutch

If the washer is making a loud noise in the spin cycle, the clutch assembly might be worn out. The clutch assembly makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It is designed to allow the tub to get up to the proper spin speed gradually. As the clutch wears out it may become loud during spin or just after the spin cycle finishes. The clutch is not repairable, if it is loud or not working properly it will need to be replaced.

Transmission

If the washer is making a loud noise the transmission might be worn out or defective. There are many other more likely causes for noise from a washer. If the noise turns out to be caused by the transmission it may have to be replaced.

All this other advice is well and good but the first thing is to ensure the machine is standing on a rock solid surface and is oriented dead level. I have just installed a used front-loader and I meticulously levelled up the machine and stood it on four rubber pads that ensured it stays in place.

BELIEVE ME THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO DAMAGE IT.

Sounds like the out-of-balance dampening mechanism is worn out or broken.
