This sounds like a sewing machine problem not a washing machine. What machine do you have? Has the machine been serviced in the past year?

Check the manual for maintenance infromation.

Noise can be from lint in the bobbin area.

You may have to replace the bobbin race. It is the round compartment (Black) that the bobbin sits in. If the needle has hit the race because of misthreading, it may have displaced it and put a hole in the race. Not very expensive to fix... want to say somewhere around $30
