Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. Have you tried taking the back off of the unit to see if the drive belt has come off?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.

No. Unit runs fine til it gets to spin cycle. Then just locks up and lights flash. Make awful grind noise. Unplug then turn to spin and will finish.

it sounds to me like the problem may possibly be with the drive motor. This part can be tested with a multimeter if you have one?
