I have a MAH5500AWH and experienced the same problem twice. Both times the R11 resistor on the control board was burnt up. The board is behind the cycle selector dial. To check, remove the outside screws holding the metal backplate for the user control console. Do not remove the inside screws as these hold components to the backplate. My advice is to replace the whole board. You can buy a new one (expensive) or try and get a used one from a repliance repair/parts center.

SOURCE: Grinding niose from agitator.
If the fill and drain functions correctly, AND the spin cycle works correctly, AND the cycle itself starts and completes correctly, the problem being that the back and forth motion of the agitator starts the loud grinding noise, it will likley be broken gears in the transmission. The single most expensive part in the washing machine.

SOURCE: grinding noise when drum rotates
may be a foreign object trapped in between the inner and outer tub. Major Disassembly required to split the outer tub. May also be the rear bearing in which case back half will have to be replaced.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
Rate me pl.....if helped.

Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the
noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be
checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs,
the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in
position. Tightening of the mounting is
also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on
the moving parts cane solve most issues.
