It may be a bad roller(s) or bearings under the drum. That would be the first place to check. Good luck.

I only hear it on the spin cycle. it gets louder as it nears the end of the cycle, it sounds like it is from the top of the drum and basket area. thanks

I would want to run the washer with front off and
the top raised to see if I could spot anything. Something
could have come loose inside the cabinet and knocking against
the outer tub during spin.
