Whirlpool Cabrio- Sounds like a jet plane. Leaking oil underneath... Bearings?
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Do you have a model number so that I can better assist you? The model should be located on a sticker below the lid down near the hinges. It's hard to see because it's tucked up underneath of the lid, but it's there.

Also, is the jet plane noise just on the spin cycle or also on the wash/agitate cycle?

I'm away from the machine at the moment~ I'll let you know this afternoon. Thanks!

Ok sounds great, just let me know when you can.

Model is # XXXXX
Check under the flat agitator, nothing stuck...
Please tell me I don't need a new tube and bearing assembly.
Perfect, thank you. So unfortunately you do need a new main bearing and shaft assembly. You'll need part kit W10435302. Now this is quite a big job, but below is a link to a video that shows you how to replace this kit if you think you want to try it yourself.
