If the sound is a grinding noise, this is usually a symptom of a gear case (transmission) going bad. However, it could also indicate a motor coupling that's starting to fail. If you look under the washer check for any drips or puddles of oil. If you find any, the transmission has begun leaking and needs to be replaced. If you find a black powdery looking substance, this is an indication of a motor coupling that is failing. I hope this may help you. Let me know what you find.

Does the washing machine empty as normal? I am assuming it does and think the brushes on the motor could be worn. Hope this helps.

Looks like it was in the 16th week of 1996 so that would be around in April 1996... according to your serial number... btw it was actually made by Whirlpool for the Kenmore line at Sears..

when empty and off, open the lid and see if you can rotate the inner wash basket by hand. if you can easily, then the clutch is worn. This will prevent the basket from going into a high spin and wringing the clothes out. Replace the clutch by removing the top control panel, removing the clips that hold the cabinet, pull cabinet off, remove drain pump clips and pump, remove motor clips and motor, remove transmission (3 bolts). Now you will have access to the clutch, replace as needed, reverse dissasembly to complete. remember to unplug.
