well sometimes it the transmission in these but a lot of the time its the drain pump. even in agitate these are turning and grind if the pump is bad. try tipping the machine back and roll the belt off. turn the pump pulley by hand and see if it makes a noise or feels like its hard to turn, let me know thanks Bryan
