Re: How do we get a pen out that is stuck inside under...
A pen???? thats a good one.. you can removce the lower access panel (3) torx 20 screws across bottom of the unit, after that youl see the pump is rigth in front of you with a beige plastic screw opener(button trap). you can open this and retrive any other debris that has fallen betwwen the tubs an dcaught hther before entering th pump assy. BE WARNED THERE WILL BE WATER BEHIND so be prepared,i usually open a tall kitchen garbage bag to catch the water. after its all empty, follow the hose leading to the bottom of tub assy, and remove there it willgive you a 3in access port into the bottom of tub, hopefully your pen is on bottom asnd you be able to grab it though there

I don't know this machine but it looks like you have just 'unhooked' a stabiliser spring. which steadies the drum when it spins.
It will go at one end connected to a frame or outer body of the machine and the other end will connect somehow to the big drum.
Just have a good look for the hooking / retaing points.
Can't help further than that sorry.
It might well be a coin! Coins and other items that fall from clothes pockets into the drum stay in the drum. They are too large to pass through the small drainage holes in the drum. But my granddaughter found a way! She opened the washing powder dispenser at the top of the machine and dropped three coins (that we know about) into the drawer and closed it. The water fill cycle then somehow swept the coins down into the drum. To get them out I had to dismantle the machine and remove the pump outlet assembly and poke a stiff wire into the drum and drag the coins out. The machine is a completely different make to your but I would assume a similar method would work. good luck
While the belt IS a possibility, you should check to make sure that the drum is not out of balance or that it is wedged somehow.
When the drum is empty, try to manually turn the drum. You should only being turning the resistance of the motor and belt; and the internal working of the tub, so it should turn under some pressure. BUT don't put excessive force into trying to turn it! If it doesn't turn with moderate pressure then something has come loose and wedged the mechanism. Which means that the drum system would need disassembled and repaired.
yes sometimes ink pens can be washed when we are not aware it was in someones pocket. I use straight ammonia and a cloth to clean my washing machine drum a couple times a year because these things have happened to me before. The ammonia will cut the grime and pen stains out of the drum. Then take a squirt bottle and fill it with white vinegar and squirt all around inside the drum of the machine. Run a wash without any clothes with the hottest water to clean the drum and clear out the stains. Do this to the dryer also and clean out the filters. Take the dispensers out from the washing machine and clean those too and your cleaning is done for a while. Apparently the ink has been in the drum of your washing machine and putting the color into your clothes. You can bleach out the white clothes that turned blue. Use the stain remover for colored clothes. Hope this will help you.
If they have come off, it is because they are worn or broken.You need to fit 3 new ones
They are referred to as drum or clothes lifters, thier purpose being to move the clothes around.
Do not use the washer until you have got them fitted.
They usually slide and click into the slots in the drum.
Sounds like the motor has frozen. Try to work the drum loose from the bottom (empty and unplugged) it just might be jammed from a pen or similar item lodged inside (someone not emptying their pockets). Since its buzzing (its the motor TRYING to move the drum) it has to be jammed from something. Rarely it could be a bearing locked up in either the drum or the motor itself though its unlikely.
