Ecobubble drum getting 'grindy'

Our 3 year old ecobubble washing machine is beginning to get a bit noisy during drum rotation.   It sounds like it's grinding a little where it used to be almost silent.  If it is empty, I can reach inside and turn the drum manually.  It feels a little rough when moving but it used to be glassy smooth for the same motion.

 

Can I expect a massive repair bill or will this maybe not deteriorate?  Any quick fixes?  Could it be limescale?

Thanks

Hi Beth. Thanks for the video.  Sadly, I don't think it addresses my problem.  I double checked and our machine is nicely balanced and well 'planted' on a concrete floor.

 

The sound is more like the sound it would make if the drum bearings had become damaged - really 'grindy' and gets louder/worse at high spin speeds.

 

I think I'll have to get someone round to look at it..

Thanks anyway
