Hey guys,

My washing machine (LG 3-Step Nano Silver) suddenly stopped draining and spinning, so I took out the motor to find a naughty hairclip lodged inside. I eagerly put it back together again, hit start and....ALAS!! Sounded like the poor thing was about to fall apart! Here is a short clip showcasing the madness:

It happens when draining and then spinning. I took the motor out again, made sure NOTHING was inside (no objects, gunk or anything), carefully put it back and unfortunately it makes the same sound.

If anyone has any ideas what it might be, I'll be ever so thankful!!!! My clothes pile is becoming a mountain ha ha :)

Did you remove the basket? There could be something caught between the basket and outer tub. Check the pump as well?
