see the causes, and proceed with common sense, God bless youLevel
If it is shaking and not sitting flat ( should have no rock corner to

Sometimes a Timer will start making noises before they fail. I would highly suggest replacing the timer
as soon as the noise develops. This can cause problems with your motor
and other components if left alone. This is easy to identify just listen

The transmission does not usually fail but to check this on a direct
drive remove the motor and rotate the inner tub and listen for noises it
should be quiet. If not the transmission is expensive and you will need
to evaluate wether it is worth repairing.
On direct drive machines this is a common failure and can be very noisy. To check and replace the motor coupler
watch the video.
You will need to disassemble the washer
to listen to the motor running. If the motor is noisy it will need replacing. On direct drive models check the motor coupler
The Suspension Rods support the tub under the cabinet on some models. The washer must be disassembled
to access. These usually do not fail. On direct drive types there will
be springs instead of suspension rods. Either usually fails but can from
The drain pump can be the cause of noise. On belt drive types remove the
belt and rotate the pump pulley it should spin freely and make no
noise. If it is noisy replace. If it does not spin freely remove and
inspect for obstructions if none found replace the pump. Check the
impeller on the pump it should be tight and spin freely. On direct drive
types remove the pump and inspect or replace
