i looked at a copy of you owners manual, look at page 97 to 100. I suspect the red blikning light is the lamp led. if it is i suspect a bad lamp. the lamps are customer replaceable. page 98 show how to replace the lamp. unplug the tv & remove the lamp, look at it to see if it is damaged (inside the lamp is there any broken pieces of glass?) lamps are around 150.00 to 500.00. good luck.

The drive belt (or belts) of a washing machine may become worn or damaged, causing noisy operation or stopping the washer entirely. A damaged drive belt is easy to replace. Remove the back panel of the washer to gain access to the belt. To remove the belt:
Step 1: Loosen the bolt on the motor bracket and move the motor to put slack in the belt.
Step 2: Remove the old belt and stretch a new one into place on the pulleys.
Step 3: To put tension on the new belt, use a hammer handle or a short pry bar to push the motor into position while you tighten the bolt in the adjustable bracket. The belt should have about 1/2 inch deflection when you press on it at the center point, midway between the pulleys. If the belt is too loose, it will slip on the pulleys, causing the machine to malfunction. If the belt is too tight, it will wear very quickly and will probably become so hot that it will start to smoke or smell.
Loose pulleys can also cause problems. Most pulleys are fastened to shafts with setscrews around the hub of the pulley. These screws must be tight or else the pulley or belt will slip. The resulting malfunction may seem to be caused by a faulty motor, but it can be corrected by tightening the pulleys and adjusting the belt. For this reason, always check the belts and pulleys before working on the motor.

I have one that does the same thing at times. remove the bottom front panel. You will see a black boot that comes down from the tub. Loosen the clamp on top of the boot. You should be able to pinch the boot and feel something hard inside the boot. Pull the boot down from the tub and put your fingers down inside the boot and pull up the coin collector. It may be full of junk, coins ect. Clean it and replace the boot and clamp. This should help you.

if it's making a noise then either your drain pump bearing is going out or your thrust bearing is going out (assuming the noise happens in both spin and wash). Tip the washer backwards so that you can get underneath of it. Take the belt off and spin the pump pulley on the right side. This should spin effortlessly.
The middle pulley is the trustbearing pulley. Spin this--- one direction it should have a little bit of resistance--- the other should have more resistance
