Re: Sparks coming from behind washer
Sparks are never good, and neither are grinding noises. I suspect you might have had a motor failure. remove the belt from the drive (transmission) pulley and set the machine to spin. if you get the gringing sound or more sparks its time for a new motor

Sounds like the spider arm(s) are broken in your machine. It is the part that supports the wash drum in the machine. It's a major repair job and can be expensive to fix. Get a few estimates before deciding whether it is worth fixing or replacing the washer.
Sounds like your motor brushes are very worn.(Its a bit like grinding metal when a cars brake pads are worn.)Should only cost 10 or so pounds for new ones,access to the motor will be required.Unplug washer b4 changing.
