First locate were the sound is coming from.
put your ear very close to the timer and listen for this clicking sound.
remember a timer will make a clicking noise which makes the timer go around.
Timers can get noisey with age.
The sound might be coming from below also .I would run your washing machine until the part fails.
They might also have a motor controller in this unit which is seperate to the timer which will make a high pitch clicking noise.

Thank you my machine model number.The reason I ask is so many folks post non FAV6800A/FAV9800A issues in this forum.This forum doesn’t ask for machine model number and serial number.Here we go.
Does your machine seem to take longer than normal to fill with water?
Does the machine increase the time during the Spin Cycle of the Wash Cycle?
Are there any error codes to the LED display such as dC or uC?
Do you want to work toward a DIY fix?If not maybe we can get a solid feel for the issue that will help you in the decision process to bring in a repair company or replace.
So I can better understand the issue can you start a Quick Wash cycle with Soil and Spin settings set to lowest setting and if you could place a couple of bath towels in the wash basket for a load.
I want to see if the machine will go thru the Wash, Rinse and Spin cycle within the 27 to 29 min time of a Quick Wash cycle.I want to see if the machine is increasing Washer Cycle time in the Spin Cycle of the Wash Cycle.
You should enter the Rinse Cycle at the 20 min mark on the LED display.
You should enter the Spin Cycle at the 10 min mark on the LED display.
Watch the cycle and see if you have similar times as I do.Let me know if the washer has any off balance issues as it enters into the Spin Cycle…..Rich
I had the same problem. Here's a link that might help: http://applianceguru.com/forum2/2937.html
I removed the hoses and pump and found the filter in the hose leading from the washer was clogged with a shoelace, $2.35 in loose change and a few GI Joe issued M4's. :-) Once I pulled that filter out and cleaned the **** the washer runs like a champ.
Had this same problem with my GE WBVH6240 Front Load Washer which we have had for about 5 years. After performing surgery on it; cleaning out the drain hoses, cleaning out the filter several times, checking the operation of the pump, checking the water pressure coming in to the washer, finally narrowed it down to the water valve. Ordered a new valve through Appliance Parts Pros. Got it in 2 days through regular shipping, installed it in less than 10 min, ran it through a quick wash cycle and everything works 4.0. Don't know which parts you replaced but this fix which I eventually got to only cost $50. Saved me hundreds and/or the possibility of buying a brand new washer. Hope this helps.
the 1st rinse light is normally set to "spray rinse", this means the machine will pump out the water, spin at medium speed then pulse cold water into the machine, this occurs for about 2 mins, then the machine will spin out, and advance for the final rinse which is a deep rinse.
sounds like the timer needs a little assistance to get "over the hump". perhaps many cam switches must be switched at his point of cam rotation.
if machine is getting old, then attempt to lubricate the electric motor that turns the timer mechanism. also lube the shaft bushings for the timer cam plate as well if possible.
