the squeeling is RR corner, The grinding noise sounds like its under the agitater and if I hold onto the agitater i can stop it from moving with little effort.
Just to be clear the water pump s bad bearing will cause the noise when the wash/ agitation cycle is on? While it spins and drains it is quiet until it comes to a halt when the squeel happens which is probably the pump and belt?
Changed pump and belt noise still occurs while "washing/ agitating" and it still squeels when drum stops
I spun the old water pump by hand and it never made a noise or sounded funny
Drum does not spin, agitater does back and forth slowly, with grinding noise.
Drum spins fast when draining water
I will look at the link and go for parts tomorrow. Just to make sure I am being clear enough. I fill the machine with water and it starts to agitate. When it does that I hear this grinding noise. Drum doesnt spin but agitater moves back and forth.
While spinning to drain everything seems normal, drum spins and when it stops it makes a loud sqeak/ squeel noise that happens only for a second. This problem has been around for a while, I always thought it was a brake issue of some sort where a disc gets glazed and makes noise . Kinda like a car would.
I Took apart the tranny pulley and the needle bearing doesnt look that bad, although it is small so its hard to say. I just dont want to replace the wrong part. I would hate to replace this stuff and find out its the tranny, but I imagine since it spins the tranny is ok?
I will be working on taking the brake apart now.
No question about the brake, I was more concerned about the grinding noise while agitating. The drive pulley bearings is what you say is the issue just want to make sure that that will fix the issue

Thanks for the info,I have the washer apart to replace the brake so the agitator is already out. The bottom part rotates and locks in fine by hand. If it is worn and causeing the grinding will it still lock in place like this?
This grinding noise is coming from that area but John figures its the transmission drive pulley and bearing and I have it on order. I dont really want to replace uneeded parts is there any way to be sure of the problem?
If it is the agitaor andI cant get one for a day or so, can I still wash clothes even if it makes the grinding noise?
