It sounds like it is coming from the motor.
are you still there?
but the water never entered into the washer. it was like the washer turned and since it did not receive water, the motor just kept waiting.
i see - but i haven't used the washer in a month . . . i guess it could be in there from the last time but the last load was done to completion. (the washer is in my family's vacation place in florida which is why it hasn't been used since then.)
thanks so much . . . is this something that a plumber can repair or do i need an appliance technician / expert?
