Wet clothes should not be left in the washer over night as mold will develop and cause a moldy odor. You could run the load through a rinse cycle with fabric softener or baking soda to get rid of the odors.

Maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub and holds the drum. Check the outer tub port- open the washer's main access panel and remove the large diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then,try to remove the clothing through the port. Good luck !

I am thinking there may be an object caught between the inner and outer tubs...perhaps something came out of a pants pocket and was "flung" overboard into the outer tub. If you remove the top, and push the inner tub (moving tub) to one side, look with a flashlight for a foreign object. the noise will be fine until high speed kicks in and begins to disturb the sleeping object into a frenzy.

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.

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.

Sounds like you have a bad fill valve on the cold water side. If your hoses are not clogged, then remove the hose and check the cold water inlet going into the machine for clogs. There is a screen that can trap mineral deposits and/or rust. If you have well water or hard water, they can become clogged easily. Sometimes you can clean them out and they will work just fine. Most of the time, however, you will need to replace the fill valve. Make sure you unplug the machine and turn the water off. The valves are electronically controlled. I hope this helps.

If the Fill light is flashing or H2O SUPPLY is scrolling on the display (2015 and newer models): the washer will initiate a 3 or 4 minute lock-out period (depending on model). The washer controls won't respond or change during this time. After 3 or 4 minutes, you can choose your settings and press Start. Unplugging the washer will start the 3 or 4 minute lock-out period again.

There should be a chrome label on the back of the machine, some times on the sides.
