Probably the best thing to do in this situation is to empty the washer out, then unplug it and turn the water off at the spigot.
Then invert the washer, leaning it back, so as to reach the blades under the drum.

Check the pressure switch and ensure small hose is attached and intact, this located at the rear of the drum, to gain access and lift the top cover, insert a knife or thin blade approx. 4" in the from each side in between the seam on the front panel, this will release the top cover clips and the top cover can be hinged up and back. The pressure switch is at the rear of the drum and has a small 1/4" hose attached which also attaches to the drum low down, ensure the hose is not perished and is securely attached, if this is ok then replace switch, note wire positions and disconnect hose. switch may be tested by blowing in where hose goes and testing continuity across terminals, as you blow the contacts should open.

Keys are under the drum of a model #ATF600FSO; how do I retrieve them?

You will need to try and see if you have a front access panel you can take apart from the unit, underneath the drum and access the pump area and see if you can locate your lost keys.

How do you remove the front kick panel

Here are the steps.Hope this helps.
Insert a putty knife between the top of the kick plate and bottom of the front panel near the center of the washer, if you have an older model top load washer. Move the putty knife blade in and out in that area until you feel an obstruction. The obstruction is the kick plate retaining clip
Press the putty knife blade over the spring clip until you feel the clip disengage. Let go of the putty knife and grab both ends of the kick plate with your hands. Pull the kick plate away from the washer

ift the front of the washer with help from a friend, if you have a front load model Whirlpool. Slide a block of wood under the front of each side and gently lower the washer Remove the three hex head screws on the bottom edge of the washer kick plate with a Phillips-head screwdriver or nut driver. Pull the kick plate away from the washer.

How do i take the lid and front panel off my ge profile? i think the tub is out of whack since it moves way too much.

Take a putty knife (or any stiff flat blade) and insert it just under the top of the washer on the front right and left edges. Both sides have a spring clip that needs to be undone. If the tub looks out of balance you will need to check the suspention rods, they are long thin poles that have a white & yellow boot at the bottom. It sounds like one of them fell off, just reinsert it into the sleeve and you will be good to go.

Hearing a scratching sound while drum is spinning...sounds like something is scraping it?

its one of two things 1. something is stuck under the lip of the drum,like a dime or paperclip. Fell all around the lip of the drum and you should feel it. 2. your Bearing Glides are worn down, they run about $5 each and yours has four of them, you will need to pull it apart to change them, its not to hard to do yourself
