Have you lost any underwires in any bras? Would be my first check, as years ago I had a similar sound & it turned out to be part of a broken underwire from my bra, I manage with a bright torch & a pair of tweezers to locate the offending object by slowly turning the drum with my hand & the teasing the metal through one of the drum holes & retrieved it, I wasn't ever going to pluck my eyebrows with the tweezers again but hey, they're cheaper than washing machines!!

I hope this helps, let me know if I can help any further...

there isn't any glue or anything that you use,what you see is most likely old detergent,it builds up on the rubber boot caused from using to much soap,then the washer starts to stink and the soap eats at the spider gear on the back of the tub or spin basket and you'll hear a loud noise when in high spin,you should only be using 2 tablespoons of soap that's it.but there's no glue,there's a spring ring that holds the outside of the bellows on and another in the inside,if your boot has the little drain tub on the bottom or top there's a little clamp that holds it on and that's it.good luck with your repair

Control board sends power to door lock and unlock door. Control Board is most likely the problem. Have you tried unplugging machine for 5 minutes and then plugging back in?

Some washers have a drain filter at the bottom behind a removeable panel that either drops down or pulls off, this is held on with either plastic clips, magnets or a spring/ hinge. The filter is usuall 3" wide and screws in and out, be aware that water will come out when filter is removed. If there is no filter you will have to take the back off the machine (screws), and look for a bulbous rubber section on the outflow pipe. This is normally fastened at each end with jubilee clips or similar,undo clips and remove to clean , refit in reverse. Hope this helps.

the water control is by a diaphragm that is controlled by a solenoid
when the solenoid is activated , a small needle unblocks a hole and the diaphragm opens to allow flow
when the water is shut off the needle blocks the hole and the incoming water closes the diaphragm off so stopping flow.
sand will affect that operation so new valves ($20.00 approx ) will fix that problem or maybe just pulling the diaphragm section off and cleaning it out
next the filters in the inlet hoses are under the rubber washers so pull the washer out and the filter will come out
next if you have a mains supply problem, the answer is to fit a big blue filter ( 4" X 20" ) paper element filter to the house supply line
that will filter out any dirt and rubbish down to 10 microns and if you go a carbon filter down to around 3 microns ( around hair thickness size)plus and taste
as for the water in the tub problem , you may have to get a technician in as that would be the program not shutting of the inlet water while spinning or a pump not operating correctly ---blocked inlet or inlet filter

I had the same problem. I went through all the steps on this thread to no avail. Finaly I just pryed the thing open - with no damage, thank goodness.

Once open I saw that the latch in the door didn't move when I pulled the handle. The problem it seems was in the latch on the door itself. If you end up this problem and want to get wet clothes out, just stick a flat-head screwdriver, behind the door latch into the horseshoe-shaped metal bit and lever it open - no prying necessary.

Not sure how I'm going to fix this permantely but at least I got my wet clothes out and can do laundry as long as I keep the screwdriver near by.

To fix - I'll either need to figure out how to disassemble the door and replace the latch mechanism, or just buy a whole new door.

hi i will say you may need a new power switch but remove the old one and have a good look at it you may be able to fix it

No spin, try these:

Using a multi meter check for continuity the door switch, which when bad may not allow agitation or spin. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically.

Check the clutch, brake assembly and transmission, one way to check for slipping is to get under the machine after a spin cycle ( this is if u get a lil spin but not much leaving clothes still wet) mix in a spray bottle a lil water and some dish detergent, then spray it on the clutch assembly ( the metal round pc. Connected to the tranny) if it sizzles and steams up then u know its bad and slipping. Another way to check clutch if u get no spin at all? Is to take it out and use ur hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside? If its very easy, it BAD should be hard to push by hand.


Next check the motor coupler which engages the tub and tranny to the motor. ( if its bad u usually get no wash or spin or very little of either)

Next check for a loose, worn or broken belt if belt driven.

On some front load models u may need to check the STATOR assembly.
The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.
