Spinning problem

Lg direct drive washing machine 11yrs old.  It spins then gets stuck and then spins again and makes a grinding noise then gets stuck and the drum shudders trying to spin this continues until it sticks completely at 6 mins.

The water pump sounds very noisy It sounds like it's pumping water out even long after the water should have gone. Where is the water coming from - it isn't siphoning back up the drain hose from the bath is it?  Check the pump filter and pump for obstructions first.

Need a repair or spare parts?

Tried washer with washing in and the grinding noise is much louder, the washer got hot and i could smell burning.  Been told it´s the bearings.

It's strange because for much of the time the drum is spinning and it sounds perfectly OK, the pump keeps kicking in and out and is very noisy. Then again the drum appears occasionally to judder as if struggling to turn but then at other times perfectly free. If drum bearings have gone normally the drum has a deep rumble on it all the time it is turning and if you spin the drum by hand hard it should sound noisy. If the drum bearings have failed - it should have a 10 year guarantee no?
