Anybody here handy with washing machines

Is anybody here handy with washing machines? I think we lost something as it started to make a very rattly noise, only occasionally, as if something rolling around. Machine seems to work otherwise, but I’m worried something is going to jam.

Obviously time and travel will be compensated, just trying here before I ring the generic anonymous washing machine repair man.

Is it a Hotpoint by any chance? I’ve lived in two houses that had hotpoints (they grey ones :stuck_out_tongue: - I know nothing more than this) and they did it quite regularly but never broke down! :smiley:
