Maytag atlantis washer making loud grinding noise

Our washer has been making grinding noises lately and yesterday the noise stopped but so did the washer. I unplugged it and plugged it in again later, so I could try to get the rest of the water out. It ran again for about a minute and then shut off again. I can't even manually turn the drum. Now I have a washer full of water and don't know how to get the water out. I also don't know if it is the bearings, belt or transmission that has gone out. My husband says it is just cheaper to buy a new one. What do you think?

Draining problem;
About the noise. If stumbles on the wash cycle and no noise occurs, is transmission problem. If the noise is present all the time the coupler that is located between the transmission and motor needs to be replace!

Washer makes loud grinding noise during agitation and does not agitate - it is a maytag atlantis.... fix or replace?

I suspect the thrust bearing kit is bad. This comes with great instructions and is easily replaced. I would recommend changing this before replacing the machine. You are not out much if it does not work, but I am confident you will get it going by replacing this! This is a VERY common problem with these washers and the new kit has been redesigned.
