Hi all, please see attached video. The noise seems to be coming from the top of the washer. It’s a front loader. Replaced the motor about 6 months ago but if I recall correctly the motor is at the bottom rear of the machine. This sound comes from the top front (from what I can hear). Any idea what it could be? Sounds like something electrical if not the motor. TIA.

It sounds like possibly the door latch switch, giggle the door handle while its doing that and see if it stops.

Thanks once again Jake, and sorry for the late reply. It was my grandmother’s washer. Ordered the new door latch switch, installed it, and working better than ever. It also spins faster now. Thanks again!!
