Well, Sounds to me like the Bearings are going out, but it could make that noise a good while, before it goes completely out.. Replacement would possably be more cost effective, Kinda hard to beleive !!!!!!

I just had the same type of problem and fixed it. The door switch under the lid is not working properly. Mine wasn't working because some lint, etc. got caught around the switch wiring and as the agitator used to spin, it spun a knot around these wires. Over time, this knot started to pull on the wires and one of the wires got disconnected. So, for the time being, I "jumpered" the switch out and can operate that way. BUT, THE SPIN CYCLE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK UNTIL YOU SHUT IT OFF. IT WILL NOT SHUT OFF BY ITSELF (AUTOMATICALLY). ALSO, BE VERY CAREFUL. THE DOOR SWITCH NOW DOESN'T WORK UNTIL YOU WIRE IT BACK IN. THEREFORE, THE SPIN CYCLE WILL CONTINUE UNTIL YOU SHUT IT OFF YOURSELF (NO DOOR SWITCH IN OTHERWORDS).

If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.
Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)
Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.
Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.
Transmission The transmission could have either of these problems:
Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.

SOURCE: washer not agitating/spinning
chances are that this would be a worn out coupling.
easy to install for someone who is partly inclined.
part costs about 15$ and takes about 20 minutes to install.
