A few things may cause a grinding noise during the spin cycle. If the washer fills normally, but when it starts to AGITATE or SPIN, it makes a noise, this is usually caused by a bad motor coupling, bad transmission, basket drive assembly, or drive motor that's starting to fail. I also wouldn't rule out the clutch. It's really hard to tell without being there to see and hear what it is doing. I would also hate to tell you to call a repairman, but it may be wise in this situation because, even if you DO know what the problem is, it may be beyond your capabilities to repair. I could give you step by step tips on how to replace the parts, but diagnosing the CORRECT one would be the challenge. I hope this helps you some. PS The likely suspect in this case would be the transmission. Not a guarantee, but a guess.

While it is filling up try this. Unplug the washer from the wall, if the water still runs then you need to replace the mixing valve. If the water stops then take the screws out at the base of the console and flip the controls back. Look for the clear hose that goes to the water pressure switch and make sure that it is connected. If it is connected take it off the switch and blow through it to see that it is clear of any obstructions.
If this only overfills after the first ore second wash then you may have the slow drain and the drain hose is in the downspout too tight.
Possible items needed;
#1 mixing valve
#2 pressure switch

Have you tried unplugging it and plugging it back again? Try it without clothes inside, does it spin? Check the lid switch for continuity. Then probably its the motor coupler check if its connected directly to the motor first, you can replace it if you should its worth about $40++. Next check the clutch and transmission, those are the parts where you should go and check. But if its a transmission problem it might cost you around 200 bucks or more so better to buy a new one instead.

The fill switch is a very sensitive device. You can test it by blowing into the tube, listen for the switch to click, or use an ohms tester. They are actually adjustble, the adjuster screw usually has glyptol (thread lock) on it. I would replace one before trusting an adjusted one.
