Thank you. There are many parts, whose failure can cause your problem. Most of then require almost complete assembly to replace them. For a complete list of the parts involved, go to, and type your model number into the search box. From the list on the left side of the screen, choose 'washer is making a loud noise'. If, after reading the text, you need more help, please let me know.

A very common issue with these machines is with the drive pulley, number 13 in the diagram at the link below.


Check to see that it has not come loose and is rattling. Also, if it makes noise during draining only, you may have a faulty pump. What part of the cycle is the noise appearing?
