It sounds like it's coming to get me!! Since it's imbalanced
Since 2 jeans were washed, it is really loud. It sounds like the ballast is loose. if the load is med. it's super really loud but will spin fast -if the load is bigger it doesn't spin much and the clothes are soaked. Now, since the hoses were removed for my diagnosis they are leaking it seems. I heard this noise is due to the imbalance-ness. When I took the back off all the springs and "tethers" seemed in place. A repair shop told me to run it empty, I did and it was fine but when I put clothes in it...........

It sounds like your drain pump has failed or has something stuck in it. You didn't specify a make and model so all I can say is that there are several good videos on YouTube about this problem because it's fairly common. Good luck!
Sounds like it is being overloaded. Alternatively take the lid off and check that the counter-weights are still ok, these look like concrete blocks. Also try and look underneath by tilting the appliance back and checking the shock absorbers are still connected, these are the 2 bars connected between the drum and frame. If all looks ok try reducing the load size. Especially towels and jeans as they become very heavy when soaked with water.
If large items in the machine create an imbalanced load the machine is designed to switch off...Towels are notorious for doing this because they hold so much water. Jeans don't soak up much water. Wash towels with towels alone and the problem should be reduced....Good luck....Nomess
It appears that you have an imbalanced load, or a nearly balanced load with a machine that easily goes off balance during spin. I would suggest:
1. After the unit trips on imbalance and stops spinning, open the lid and redistribute the laundry load inside to balance its weight equally around the interior of the drum. Note that cotton fabrics hold much more water than synthetics, and this has resulted in imbalanced loads even though they visually appear to be balanced. Close lid to restart spin.
2. Remove the front panel and check both tensioning/centering springs on the sides of the tub. A loose spring could easily cause the machine to go off balance.
3. Finally, check the main bearng play by holding the drum steady and moving the top of the agitator spindle horizontally toward the rim of the tub. Any excessive play is a clear indicator that bearing is excessively worn and may be resulting in an unbalanced load.
Im not an expert, but i used to work for comet electicals. I have come across this problem a few times, and most times the problem was caused by the transitbar/ bolts not being removed on instalation. These can be located at the rear of your machine.
This sounds like the imbalanced load alarm. This can occur with large heavy loads like blankets, bedding, lots of diapers (cloth), jeans etc. The best solution is to wash lighter loads and not overload the machine. If overloading continues, the machine could be damaged.
There is nothing wrong with your machine. Don'f bother with the sound , You said you threw 2 pair of jeans, so its bottons are causing the sound against the drum during cycle. Finished your laundry and worry no more. To make sure, throw some another clothing asides form jeans, like shirts, and feel the normal silent of your machine.
probably 2 separate faults
no heat is possibly either open circuit on the elements which are at the top of the machine, or open circuit thermal cut outs (up to 3 of) located
also at the top of the machine near to where the element is and along the flow of the hot air,
you can check these with a normal electrical multi-meter, unplug machine before testing
as for the vibration on spin, just look for any loose suspension legs, and or twisted drum alignment, very difficult to work on due to lack of access but sometimes just re-tightening the legs up etc, could cure the vibration
hope i have helped you to start somewhere
take care to note in detail any wires or parts removed or in case of accidental removal
