Hi. Our washing machine is having some issues as below and appreciate your advice. The model of our washing machine is Kenmore White-on-white 3.1cu. ft. IEC Extra-Large Capacity Front Load Washer (Mfr. model #417.43142)

1) The washing machine makes squeaking and knocking noise when the drum is rotating (during the washing and spinning cycles).
2) The clothes/loads are still quite wet even after the spinning cycle completes.
3) The drum inside looks off-balanced/wobbly when rotating.
4) Small water leaks from the front door during washing cycle.

We are suspecting this is due to some damages (or worn) to the bearing, but not for sure how bad it is. We would like to know if this is something that can be repaired, and if so, what kind of repairing cost we should expect. Our washing machine is about 12 years old. Thank you.
