See if the drum will wiggle up and down. There should be no free movement. If so the bearings likely need replaced.

    Thanks everyone. I checked to see if it was the bearings. This was one of my earlier thoughts and my worst case scenario. By using the above method I thought it was probably not the bearings. It turned out to be coins and other obstructions which we removed easily! Voila!

SOURCE: My Bosch 2060 Front end loader will not drain/spin

Get the pennies or dimes out of the accordian style black hose at the bottom of the washer. You will need to lay the washer against something so you can get in from underneath. Take a plyers and squeeze the medal clamp so the hose can slip off. I found 3 dimes that acted like washers. The machine will drain.

suspect you have filter blocked or a foreign object in pump. put drain hose as low as possible in a bowl and drain as much water as you can undo filter but be carefull, water will come out in considerable quantities. clean filter check nothing stuck in pump impellor

Just fixed the same problem - new brushes on ebay were only £5. Fitting the brushes was fiddly and easiest if you take the motor off, which was easy to do (just 2 bolts).

SOURCE: making screeching noise during spin cycle

Problem: very irritating squealing sound when washer is spinning or coasting to a stop after the spin cycle.
Case:  1. Snubber damage defective.  
           2. Foreign material (sand/dust or grit) is on the base.
Solution: 1. Replace the snubber.  
                2. clean base.
     The snubber is a ring that is located between the convex (domed up) center portion of the base and the domed down center portion of the LEG & DOME ASSEMBLY.
     The snubber has teflon strips at the top and bottom edges that slide easily on the base as well as the underside of the leg and dome assembly.
     This system makes the machine very stable by providing isolation between the leg & dome assy. Which carries both the inner and outer tubs, as well as the main motor and transmission and the base; which is of course connected to the cabinet. This means that the machine is capable of spinning out of balance loads.
     As simple as this system is, if one on the strips is bent or there is some foreign material on the base in the snubber area, the result can be an extremely obnoxious scratching or squealing sound that can make the consumer very unhappy.
     A very similiar sound can be produced when the belt is worn but the difference is that a snubber noise can be produced during the spin cycle or when the cycle has finished and the spin tub is coasting to a stop. A worn belt noise can only be produced while the motor is actively engaged in spinning the spin tub. If it is discovered that the belt is worn and the base has black, shredded belt residue then it may not necessary to clean it out (belt residue generally will not cause a problem with the snubber). It will be necessary however, to find the cause of the belt failure.
     The following procedure should be followed to diagnose and eliminate this condition: 
Removing the snubber:
The base must be wiped whether the snubber is replaced or not.  Any residue whether it is dust or grit of any kind (other than belt residue as noted above) can cause the objectionable sound to occur.
Remove the front service panel and place the timer in the spin cycle and start the machine.  You want to try to duplicate the complaint.  Inspect the base for sign of any foreign material.  Lift the top panel up and over and lean it against the rear wall.
You will need a tool to raise the entire Leg & Dome Assembly (to which the main motor, tubs and transmission are attached).  The machine will not need to be disassembled; the springs will not even be released.
Some Techs use a length of two-by-four" to raise the assembly.  A pry-bar makes a superior tool when combined with a block of wood to act as a fulcrum (or pivot point).
Before raising the assembly, pull forward on it so that when you do raise it, the rear of the tub cover does not catch on the rear cabinet frame as it is being lifted.
Using your body weight, raise the assembly high enough to slide the snubber out.  You will need to inspect the snubber for defects or damage.  It is a good idea to be prepared with some sort of supports (like 3/4 inch pieces of wood) to slide between the lower edge of the assembly and the base to help support it if it were to slide off your pry-bar.

Started making loud "clicking" noise


Blocked pump, open flap bottom right, drain off excess water manually and remove pump filter. Make sure you get right down and have a look in at the impellor and give it a turn to make sure its free to rotate. You'll probably find a coin, button etc that is catching the pump impellor. When you start a cycle the pump engages for a few seconds and then the w/m takes in water, so if something is stopping the impellor rotating the w/m will not start.
Best of luck

You can check the drain or the filter. You will have to pull it out of the space it is now to access it. Items will get stuck in the drain clogging it.

Rattling noise during spin cycle


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
