Summit SPWD1800 Laundry : Washer/Dryer Combos - Answered Questions & Fixed issues
My Model GHW9100L Washing machine make a loud noise during spin cycle and parts of the wash cycle when the drum is moving back and forth.
You must mean when the AGITATOR is moving back & forth! The drum spins only in one direction. So...
The agitator is driven off a gear train in the transmission. If the noise is occurring during the AGITATOR’s motion, you’d best have that transmission serviced, and soon; before it could lock up and cause more serious damage.
Call around for estimates in your area for prices to replace the transmission if that is necessary. Ask for a parts and labor breakdown and for terms of the service warranty, which usually covers parts for about one year but labor for much less time. And be sure you use a technician qualified to work on your machine. You could even ask for a reference or two.
Don’t be afraid to have this service done, even on an older machine. If done properly it will serve for at least another 10 years. But if the cabinet is rusted and/or you’ve seen frequent repairs with this machine, replacing the machine is a better decision.
By the way, when you make a service call and inquire in a manner that reflects that you know about these things (like “I’m pretty sure the transmission is the problem because the noise occurs only when the agitator is operating”) you will gain more respect from a serviceman with integrity. He will know you’re serious about having this fixed and he might even suspect it’s already been looked at, so he may be more likely to give you his best price.

Washer wont let water in to wash
i don't know. most washers have a lid safety switch that must be indicating the door or lid is properly closed. please check this switch is working properly. i just used a volt meter on a top loader. the lid switch was damaged.
if no water coming in, check hot and cold water are turned on. if no water, shutoff taps and disconnect both hoses at washer and the taps.[ most hoses have a wire screen in hose that may be plugged ]. if all seems clear, reconnect tap hose ends. hold hoses into sink or pail and check each is running free by just turning on taps a small amount. if hoses are OK, it may be the electrical connection to the water solenoids. inspect to see if connections are secure. if all seems OK, it may be a plugged or faulty switch/tube that is indicating the empty machine is full of water.
