Clanking, sparking sound coming from washer

I just noticed this loud sound right as the washer started. Its a Maytag oversized capacity plus.
Any ideas?

    The sound came after the machine had started to agitate, maybe that's not the correct word, but the sound was like it was sparking or like an oversized BB was hitting the inside bottom right of the machine. It even had a smell, like it may have been getting over heated. It was a large load, but nothing more than I usually do. I unplugged the machine and did the wash at a friend's. Upon returning from vacation, I tried it again and so far no problems.

    Thanks for any ideas.

Need to know a little more info. Need to know if this noise starts when you first turn it on (during the fill up cycle), once the actual washer starts (wash cycle) or when it goes into spin cycle.

The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

You need to observe and check after disconnecting the power , touch the motor, the element area or the control panel or the valves/pump.
If you notice any heat on these , it can be the culprit.
You can proceed to remove the suspected part to discover what was the reason for the burning rubber smell.
