Question about Washing Machines
After last using it I noticed when I spin the drum it made a noise like something is in there..Today I used it it worked but made a loud noise Now I know for sure something is in there but looking all around the black rubber seal I see nothing but don't know how to look elsewhere. The washer went through the cycle drained the water so it functions right. Got a sears repair man coming out in 6 days would like to find it myself b4 I have to give him 130 dollars>Purchase 11-2002
If the model # starts with 417. it's a Frigidaire.(POS!) Machines of that vintage had a LOT of problems with the rear bearing and/or the shaft ***'y coming loose from the tub. Grab the wash tub (the stainless steel one inside the door) at the top and bottom and see if it moves separately from the rest of the tub assembly. If it does and you can hear a clunk, throw it away and put the $130 towards a new one! ($130 service charge?? I GOTTA raise MY prices!!!)

Hello terilym - From what you have described it sounds like you possibly have foreign objects such as coins or safety pins in the tub or pump. I suggest unplugging the washer and carefully check the tub and to verify that the drum is also not damaged. If noise continues after washer is restarted, objects may be in the actual pump. Contact a professional to accurately diagnose and repair the unit.
