Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

If it's making a slight noise, either your motor is bad or the drum is jammed. Turn the drum and make sure it still turns. If so and it won't spin, you'll need to order and replace the motor below the drum because the start winding is bad. Below is a link to the cheapest place I've found the motor for sale if you wanted to order and relace the motor yourself.
