Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.
are you sure this isn't draining ? did you stop it before it had a chance to drain when you heard the noise ? is this a top load ? do you have the model # ?

I did stop it, of course, but I tested it on all of the spin cycles and it made the same sound. I don't think it was draining because usually when I open the lid during a spin cycle, I can see it still spinning. It was not moving at all, and the clothes were dripping with water; I had to hand wring them out.
