SOURCE: Agitator problem
Check to see if any thing is under the agitator. If not then maybe the bearings going out or other part of machine . Besure the cap is tighten so agatator don't come off. Check for ware on agatator top to the tighting nut.

yes you can do it yourself no special tools are need just a couple good flathead screwdrivers and a lot of patiance be sure to put all the new washers and bearing back on in the same order the old ones came off putting the C clip on can be a little tricky but take you time and it can be done you may hvw to use the flat head to pry on the trans. shaft to get the clip in the groove then use a pair of chanell locks or pliers to snap it on if you get a new style bearing it may not look like the one you take off and not have all he washers just snap the small plastic pice onto the bearing put it on the the pulley the most of the time just the thin washe then the C clip the dust cover put belt back on the test machine

I would agree with that diagnosis. That is a symptom of a worn thrust bearing for sure and it is a quite common occurrence on your style of washer.
I wouldn't rule out debris in the drain pump as another possibility as well though, i.e. small stones, jewelry, etc. You may want to rule out that possibility before throwing money at a pulley & thrust bearing kit ( it is actually a "transmission pulley kit" which comes with a new thrust bearing as well ). part # 12002213 and retails for about $40-$50 see photo's below.
Hope that answer's your question. Let me know if I can assist you further and thank's for visiting "fixya" for your repair inquiry. Please take a second and rate this info I provided for you here.

SOURCE: NOISE DURING SPIN CYCLE
You have to take the tub out, take off the rotor from the bottom of the washer, remove 4 bolts and take off the stator, take off the bearing retaining nut, then drive the 2 bearings out with a drift. I bought the bearings online for 20 bucks from a supplier (VBX). They are standard metric bearings number 6005 and 6006. I put some silicone grease on the shaft seal and drove the new bearings into place. Then reassembled, and the washer is whisper quiet.
