Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3t Front Load Washer
It seems the clicking is coming from a small black box connected to the filter.
That small black box next to "the filter" is actually the drive motor for the drain pump. The motor has a small impeller blade inside that spins. More than likely, you have something caught in the drain pump that is hitting the impeller blades. The following link explains how to clean out the pump:
With the filter removed from the pump, check for anything that may have gotten past it and getting caught in the impeller.
It doesn't take much to damage these small pumps. If you notice the noise continuing, reduced performance of the pump, or if you start receiving any error codes that do not clear, it is recommended that you replace the drain pump. New pumps can be purchased (if needed) at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. You can choose whatever web source you like, but these sites, I have found, provide excellent service with competitive pricing.
If you have any questions about this repair, or if you require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you. Hopefully...you won't need any parts.

• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is
running. • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects • If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump
The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.
