Ok jknavy,

Remove the front panel and locate the pump assembly there are two wires going to it - - remove one and put your washer in spin ( no water in tub ) If your noise goes away you need to replace the pump, if noise persists problem is most likely in transmission. Since you don't mention that you hear the noise while it is agitating that would eliminate the motor bearings or the belt squealing.
