Something locked up on the transmission then the drive belt broke. Put on a new belt and try a spin cycle, if it works but it won't agitate then the trans will need replaced.

My magic chef washing machine makes a loud grinding/rubbing noise when agitating. Everything still washes and no smell of burning rubber, etc.

Stop the making if you can. Be sure something is wrong. When the machine is empty, ask a technician to check what is wrong. If it is an old machine, start saving for a new one and forget the tech.

Load squeal when it in the agitation cycle.

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

NAV5800a top loader washer

The inside of your agitator became worn, and possible strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. The loud noise mustly occurs during the spin cycle. If you hear this loud noise your load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it.
