Well, Sounds to me like the Bearings are going out, but it could make that noise a good while, before it goes completely out.. Replacement would possably be more cost effective, Kinda hard to beleive !!!!!!

SOURCE: won't agitate
Ours did this and it was because the bearings had busted. I called a local repair guy and he told me over the phone just by listening to the sound. Maybe you could do the same. I do know this, if it is your bearings, buy a new washer. It's not worth the repair...trust me.

The agitator and drive gearbox are all one part and are not serviceable (sealed), if it is the gearbox the machine is possibly scrap as the part is more expensive than a new machine. Will need further investigation.
Is the spin OK (quiet) the motor rotates one way to agitate and the other way in fast to spin, the belt may be removed at the middle pulley (Below) rotated in each direction to test. try the machine without the belt and listen to motor.

Testimonial: "Great feedback. Will try suggestions. Thanks."
The front panel does not come off.
To access the inside - there are a few screw on the back - then the shroud is removed.
