hi, i've just took my washing machine apart, recently a few times smoke and burnt smell came out of it especially after spinning, and yesterday i also heard knocking loud noise from it at spinning cycle so i just turned it off, it was a 60*C program i couldn't think it should steam that much and the burning smell again. so this morning i run test program everything works electronic wise, but as i spin the drum by hand at some point it feels like something in between the drum and the drum housing. pulley at the rear seems solid no play motor's shaft has no play and belt looks fine. i took of the door seal because the whole drum floating it was hard to feel anything, but now i can see the drum is like not perfectly centered and i feel some play in the drum itself.

Wonder if theese have 2 bearings? is it worth take the whole drum out and dismantle to see the bearing inside?
