All washers have a safety switch on the on lid. There is usually a slot that a plastic pin goes into to activate the switch. These switches are high failure parts. The switch is located on the underside of the top deck. It should check 0 ohms when closed. You can also jump it but then it would NOT stop when the lid is open ie; during agitation or spin cycle ( a safety hazard).
It sounds like the belts need replaced. There are 2 of them. One drives the transmission, and one drives the belt. They should both be replaced. Also, there are rollers on the motor bracket that wear. Make sure the motor moves smoothly back and forth in the bracket.
Its probably you stator plate and rotor. But you need special tools for this repair. There a spring that is under 200 pounds of pressure and if you take the screws off that hold the plate its going to fly into you face if your dont use the special tools to depress the spring. Is it more of a clanking kinda of noise? DOes it olnly happen with heavy loads? Try this out. Fill the washer with water only. and get it into a wash cycle with water only. If there is no noise then put in like a load of towels. A heavy load. Now if you hear the noise now then its for sure you stator plate and rotor..hope this helps, but like i said you need those special tools to do this repair or injury can result from the spring part.
