Most likely a bad pump. Or something drained into the pump and was grinding in it. This is common, coins, sock etc..

While you have it torn down check the drain pump for blockage too.

My kenmore HE 2 Plus washing machine makes a loud grinding noise when it enters the pre-wash/wash cycle (worse on this cycle) then continues on through the rest of the cycles. Washer fills, rinses, spins...


Unfortunately, I don't think you will be able to fix this issue, some mechanical parts are breaking. If your appliance still under warranty, you may need to contact the appliance manufacturer for assistance. This kind of repair can be expensive and is difficult enough so a service technician may need to fix it.

Grinding Noise when Washer Attempts to Spin


It is probably the same problem because it is trying to drain during the spin cycle. My machine sounded as though a chain wis clanking, the solution was removing a coin caught in the drain pump. Access the pump from the bottom of the machine. 4 screws hold the mounting bracket on undo those, the electrical connection and two hose to the pump. Undo three screws holding impeller to motor and coin can fall out. Examine for damage if it is not too tore up, put back together. Keep in mind that when you unclamp the hoses that water will come out.
