This is a Brastemp Top loading washing machine bought in 2007.
Its called a Tira Manches 9kg model.
Machine works fine until it gets to the spin cycle and the I get the noise you be be able to see in the video link below after 20secs.

Pretty sure its coming from the plastic toothed clutch mechanism that is actuated by a cable that is is pulled by a small electric motor.

Any ideas.

Problem started after a badly balanced load (pillow), dont know its co-incidence or caused the problem.

yes it does sound like a clutch mechanism or slipping plastic gearing. Don't have any tech info. or parts look up for this unit.

When the cable puller (top right) moves to the right pulling against the spring it is actually engaging the clutch and releasing the band brake at the same time. During the spin this cable appears to release and then actuate again (engaging the clutch while the drun is still spinning) could it be possible this cable puller is faulty.
(cable puller also known as a brake actuator)

Looks to me like the spin engage solenoid is for some reason losing power, either breaking down under a load, controller problem or maybe a broken or loose wire to the solenoid that as it spins jostles around and loses connection.

cheers for the tip Budget "Appliance Repair"
PROBLEM FIXED!

I checked the continuity of the 2 wires going to cable puller motor. They both went to the water drain pump, where they picked up there power there. The wire had a bad connection. I cut the wire off and resoldered it onto the puch on connecter. Now its fine. Ha Ha, fixed it!!!
