It sounds like you may have a worn drive belt. I'll look for the technical information I need to assist you, and I'll get back to you. Thank you.

I've found more information on your washer. It's not belt driven, but has a direct drive transmission. It the failed transmission that is making all the noise you hear. The part costs about $250, and the washer needs to be mostly disassembled to replace it. I suggest that you have a professional servicer, with the proper tools and training, do the work, if you choose to keep the washer. My best guess for the complete job is $500 to $750.
