I have a PAV2300 and I recently experienced a grinding noise. Turned out to be the pump pully has a sleve between the pully and the bearing that has slid out of position and was grinding against the base of the pump. You could see where it had ground the paint away. I took the pump out and using a small bladed screwdriver, wedged it between the selve and the base of the pump and working my way around it several times, managed to press it back into place. On the PAV2300 the pump is in the back of the unit. Looking at the picture the sleve is between that pully and the black base. Hope this helps. Good luck :)

It's hard to pinpoint it from your description. But it might be either the motor coupler, or transmission. Does it agitate alright with no noise? It could be center shaft bearings too if it only makes the noise in spin. Either way, with transmission, or center shaft bearings, the transmission needs to be removed. The motor coupler is a lot easier. It's what drives everything and is used instead of a belt. If the rubber is worn out, it can make an awful noise. If this helps, please rate my answer. Thank you.

You are right!
Bearings have to be replaced. Replace with the same type and design. All the bearings connected to the washer center shaft has to be replaced at the same time with new set.
Replace the water seals also connected to this. Check the shaft where the bearing sits, for any abrasions or metal damage.
Check the bearing housing also. While carrying out these repairs check the drive belt also. If needed replace it.
If you are happy with the machine outer body and other aspects repair it and re-use it.
