Way back (say 10 years) there was a fix for this for transmission with I believe had white stickers on them. (not yellow, green, or other colors) which was a set of ball bearings and a special grease. It was part number WH49X10002. I think parts stores want about $125 for that now if they have them. That's a lot for four about 1/4 inch ball bearings and a squeeze tube of special grease. If I were fixing your machine I would replace the entire transmission (WH38X10002) which probably will run about $25 more than the kit, and is really less work. Now you will have to decide if you want to put that kind of money into a 12 year old low end of the line washer. Personally, I'd advise to put that money toward a new front loading machine which use only 12-15 gallons of water (vs. about 45) and spin out at 1000 RPM or more (vs. 550).
PS. I personally like the LG front loaders the best, for several reasons including the direct drive motor with it's seven year part warranty. Don't buy from Sears, which does not provide factory warranties on most machines. Look at the LG WM1814 or WM2233, or WM2455. You don't have to go to the top of the list to get some great features. Let me know if you decide to fix and need advice on how to proceed. Thanks for the question. Please don't rate if you can't do a Fix-Ya, as anything else drops my score.
