Washing machine started making noise in spin cycle and then there were fumes
It happened in the spin cycle. My washing machine suddenly started making noise.I stopped it soon after.
Then I saw fumes coming out from the detergent section, and when I opened the door , there were more fumes smelling like burning rubber.
What could have gone wrong and how much would the same cost :(

Check for broken/disconnected springs, disconnected/faulty shock absorbers (dampers). For this you have to disconnect the mains power and open up the machine. Spares can be obtained from this very site - Fixya.
It is a phenomenon called resonance. Whenever the natural frequency of your sink unit is equal to the disturbing frequency (rpm of the spin cycle of the washing machine) the sink resonates. It happens only at particular speed of spinning and vanishes with change in speed. Nothing to worry about and is common. sort of sounds like the spray arm is loose. In your befuddled poking around, perhaps you pulled the lower spray arm out and ran it but, lo, it still makes the noise when washing. You don’t hear the noise during the drain cycle.

you will most probably find that the inside of the belt that runs on the pulley has been breaking away bit by bit and if the pulley stops where there is a bit missing it may not turn when the pulley starts to turn.
Just a thought as it has happened to me a few times
The odor is most probably burning rubber as the pulley spins on the belt
A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. Front load washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth.======= It's noisy
Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
Check the water pump for an obstruction in the chamber area, your pump may be sticking and that will cause the buzzing sound. The water pump runs during the fill portion of the cycle on several of the selected wash cycles to recirculate the water.
we had something similar happen just before christmas. Our machine seemed to finish a cycle and started making beeping noise with end light flashing. Then when I switched it back on to do another load it just started beeping with end light flashing no matter what cycle was selected. Engineer has been out and advised that it is a fault with the motherboard so has ordered another one. Hope this is of some help. Machine was tricity bendix aw1400w.
