It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

although the pump will turn by hand . when you use the motor power and the belt tenson;. it may be binding.

More than likely the water valve is bad, but before you go and change the part turn the water off and remove the hose and check to make sure there is nothing, such as calcium deposits, blocking the flow of water.

Your switch is bad. You don't necessarily need the switch. Snip the wires off either side of the switch and fuse them together with a wire connector.

Have you tried to drain the drum manualy by opening the drain plug, normaly located on botom either in the front or the back.

when drained unplug the machine from the wall socket. then open the backcover, the drainpump are usually located next to drainplug. if not follow the hose connected to drain plug to get to the pump.when you found the pump remove it from the washing machine and strip it to clean the inside of the pump ,the impellor and so on. their you will find some black stuff that will stink a lot ,thats all old soap water.after cleaning put it back together and reinstall it. it should solve the problem, if not check for propper supply voltage to pump and spin motor.
