Transmission is most likely bad.

Check the cold water side of the water valve for a plugged screen where the water hose attaches to the washing machine. If there is debris in it you can carefully remove the screen and clean it.Make sure to put the screen back in or you could have more trouble sown the line. If this is not the problem more information is required.

The drain pump assembly requires cleaning...you'll have to take it apart to clean the drain pump assembly. If after cleaning the issue returns then the drain pump should be replaced. Please check this video on how to clean/replace the drain pump assembly:

Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Is it a constant squeak or does it go squeak-squeak - squeak as it agitates? It is a squeak that is intermittant then usually your brake is losing its hold. You will need a technician to do this job. It requires special tools that they should have. I repeat a technician should do this job. You can seriously hurt yourself attempting this repair. Also see if the inner tup is turning as it agitates, if it is then it i definately the brake. But one more time do not try this repair it is a dangerous repair that should be left to technicians. There is a spring that is under heavy compression that requires a tool to release it.

You need a water valve because debris has gotten in to the valve causing it not to close completely.

You could have a worn out drive pulley/cam not raising the brake far enough to release or a leaking tub seal has rusted and locked the spin bearing up.

Remove front, tilt the machine back against a wall, remove the drive belt and turn the main transmission pulley, (the one in the center of machine), one way will make it agitate the other should make the pulley raise up on the cam ramp and release the brake letting the transmission turn. When you turn the pulley in the direction for spin, if the transmission doesn't want to turn try grabbing hold of transmission and turn it by hand while turning pulley.

If the ramp on the pulley/cam has worn down you can do a tempory fix by installing a thicker or extra washer between part ref# 4 and 6 to compensate for the worn cam ramp. Also check all parts in ref#24 to make sure all thrust washer and bearings are intact.

Do you notice any signs of water leakage at the top of the transmission, if so this would indicate the center tub seal has been leaking water and frozen up the main spin bearing.
Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.
