That could very well be the cause of your noise. You will need to remove the back cover of the machine to look inside and see if anything is out of position. Some machines have a concrete block used as a counter weight for the belt drive. You may need to move it back into its holder. The tub could also be out of center. You can recenter it by moving the tub around from the top by the agitator. Make sure all the belts are in the pulleys if it is a belt drive. The back panel should come off by taking out a few screws or bolts.

Sounds like a jet plane taking off when it spins, I think I got in 2003 Also the top of the agitator wont stay on


Has it always sounded like a jet plane? If it has. Then who installed your new washing machine didn't disengaged the two counter weight inside the washing machine. There two concert block or plastic block inside the washing machine. Each block is attached to one end of counter blanching bar which has some spring attached to them. During manufacturing these weights are tied down for shipment. During installation the ties are removed then the washing machine can be leveled.

Counter weights are used to off set the uneven load in the tub. That way the washing will not start walking in the house. Side load washing machine use a plastic donut the fits around the drum and it fill with fluid for counter weight.

Now the cap of the agitator, it broken. The locking tabs are broke off. needs to replace. I hope you said the top of the agitator and not the agitator is coming out. If it is, you got major problems. stewbison

Washer leaks during spin cycle


If the machine is leaking then the bolt on the drum need to be tightened. you can acces them by removing the top or rear cover of the machine. If the machine is wobbling it need to be leveled or a shock absorber or spring connected to the drum has come loose or needs to be replaced

Washing machine walks while spinning


A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. in washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth  is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth
