My Maytag Performa makes a grinding sound when it agitates. When it starts to dump the water it makes a loud grinding on metal sound... really loud. What is the problem and how much to fix?

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.
See the Whirlpool parts list for their commercial washers, the consumer model is essentially the same.
The problem is likely either the transmission cover or the gearcase cover seal or the spin pinion seal.
Following is a good description from GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission. http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase
When you pull the transmission, you should be able to tell where it is leaking.
In order to pull off the cover, pull the transmission, remove the clutch (there is a spring clip that holds the clutch on the main agitator shaft, remove the 8 screws carefully the transmission holds 16Oz of oil

1. I assume all the water is out of the tub. If that is true the pump is ok.
2. Check the belt since this is a common "replacement" item.
3. Also watch the spin cycle by opening the door and manually actuating the door switch.
(keep your hands out).
a. The pump will pump all the water out of the tub before beginning to spin the tub.
b. Watch the time of spin also.
4. Remember a big load of towels will hold a lot of water.
