Washer making a weird noise

I've already had to replace the main board in my dryer. And now I'm having problems with the washer and of course it's not under warranty any more. Anyway, when the washer starts the rinse or spin cycle it makes a really strange rattling noise. At first I thought that maybe there was something in the washer tub that was rattling around, but there's nothing in there. The noise is coming from the back of the washer and the display isn't flashing any error codes. The washer just keeps running, but something is wrong or it wouldn't be making that noise. I don't want to keep using the washer and ruin it. I have a family of 6 and I need my washer to work. Please help.
We have the HE 27062601 and today it started making loud rattling noises just as described above. I pulled the washer out of position and removed the back. While holding my hand on the drain pump we test ran the washer and could feel the rattling in that pump located in the lower right side of the washer (looking from operator's position). Unplug the washer from electrical outlet. Compress and move the drain hose clamp out of the way and put a catch dish under the pump. Partially removing the hose will allow you to meter out the water. After draining a couple of dishes of water (dog dishes work great), I did the same with the short elbow hose leading to the pump until the pump was drained. With a flashlight, I could then see the dime that was rattling under the plastic pump impeller. Caution... there were actually two dimes so it pays (literally) to double check for all debris in the pump.

Need to disassemble a kenmore elite oasis dryer


#
1

Disconnect your Kenmore Oasis washing machine from its power source. Make sure that your washer is unplugged before beginning to disassemble it.
#
2

Remove the screws that hold the control console to the top of your Oasis washer. In some Kenmore Oasis models, the two screws may be covered by plastic end caps. After removing the screws, set them aside until you are ready to replace them.
#
3

Flip the console up, back and out of the way.
4

Locate the cabinet clips on the top of your Kenmore Oasis washer. These clips are located toward the back of the washer top and would be hidden by the console if it were not currently flipped up.
#
5

Slide your screwdriver underneath the metal cabinet clips. Wiggle the screwdriver back and forth to gently pry the cabinet clips free.
#
6

Disconnect the group of colored wires that plug into the top of the washer from the control console. These wires control the lid switch on your Kenmore washing machine. To disconnect, grasp the white plastic clip and pull gently.
#
7

Remove the washing machine cabinet. Tilt the cabinet towards you, and then lift the entire cabinet up and off of its platform.

Washer making a weird noise


forgot to include the most important step! We got the dimes out after wadding up a small piece of duct tape, sticky side out, and using locking forceps to grip the tape while fishing out the dimes from the drain pump.
