Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
I agree with solution number one, however after my washer made all kinds of squeals, high and low I called for service on it, and all it needed was for the bearing to be oiled. It worked just fine for 2 years and then a week ago the washer started making all the noises again. I took the front washer panel off and oiled the bearings my self with a high quality oil. Make sure you do NOT get any oil on the belt. Its working just fine again and saved us a hundred dollar service call. Woohoo

to chek what is wrong follow the bellow instruction....
Check the motor bearings
If your washing machine is making a high-pitched whine or squealing noise while running, the main culprit is usually worn motor bearings. To check the motor bearings, remove the belt and run the motor by itself, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise, than the problem is most likely the result of worn motor bearings and has nothing to do with issues in the rest of the washer.
Check for Obstructions
Sometimes coins, bra underwires and other metal objects come loose in the wash and become stuck between the tub and the drum. Using a flashlight, take a good look inside the washing machine. If you see dents, scratches or dings, that's a sign that there either are or have been items bouncing around in there that can make a horrible racket.
Check for Grease Spatter
A high-pitched squealing can be caused when the grease thins around the bearing that's located under the tub. Open up the washing machine and check the interior for grease spatters or spots. That could mean that the grease has thinned out around the bearing and it's making the noise because of rubbing.
Check the Drum for Irregularities
Spin the drum by hand, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise in the same spot with each rotation, the problem could be with the washing machine drum itself. Parts of the drum can corrode over time, leaving it vulnerable to cracks or rust.

Sounds like something is in the pump or the pump bearing went bad. The pump runs CONSTANTLY in agitate, it runs backwards and spin and drain the motor reverses, so if there's something in it, it'll make noise the entire time.
