The tub is supposed to be locked untill the brake is released. When the machine is in the wash mode the tub is locked or else the clothes would all get knotted up. When the motor reverses the brake is released and the tub can turn freely. Check the pump for bad bearing.

What's the cause of my washer's agitation and noise problem?


Possibly a bad basket drive. Or something is wrapped around the shaft under the tub or something is in the pump.

Machine is making clanking and grinding noise during wash cycle drum does not appear to be turning. does not make this noise if ran without items in wash and drum turns with no items in the wash


You may have a problem with bearing. Place your hand inside the drum and see if you can move it up and down. If the drum can be moved up and down, you have a severe bearing problem that will require a technician to tear down the unit and replace the bearing and drum assembly. It's a very expensive job.
Good luck

My washer is making a grinding, metalic noise when the agitator is supposed to be moving. Water enters and drains fine. The agitator moves very little and makes a great racket. Help!


Could be the belt or the bearing or both...
You need to remove the belt and test if agitator moves easy by hand, then it means bearing is OK

Agitator ''dogs'' not gripping, agitator spins freely; tub rocks


Likely a broken dog itself was making the noise. They should all be replaced.
