Hi i'll be glad to try and help you with that. Grinding noise may be caused by a couple things, it could be the motor, a bad tub bearing, or something stuck between the tub and basket. Are you getting alot of noise when it spins or did it just seem a little stiff when you spun it with your hand?

Hi it seems to be grinding when there is no water so filling at start, after spin cycle mid wash, and final spin. No noise while washing tho

If its making a noise while it is supposed to be filling it sounds like it could be the water valve, noise in the spin sounds like itmay be a bad tub bearing, you could also remove the motor from the back of the drum and make sure there is nothing caught in there
