A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. Front load washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth  is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth

Probably bad lid switch. Your ratchet noise is normal during the wash cycle.

Monster growling coming from my washer


I have a PAV2300 and I recently experienced a grinding noise. Turned out to be the pump pully has a sleve between the pully and the bearing that has slid out of position and was grinding against the base of the pump. You could see where it had ground the paint away. I took the pump out and using a small bladed screwdriver, wedged it between the selve and the base of the pump and working my way around it several times, managed to press it back into place. On the PAV2300 the pump is in the back of the unit. Looking at the picture the sleve is between that pully and the black base. Hope this helps. Good luck :)
