There is a known problem with this GE model. Remove the front panel, look at the base plate below the motor. Can you see that it has been rubbing there? On that model the "front apron bracket" fails allowing the motor to rub againist the base. You will need to replace the apron with the new design they have out.Here is the part to order. You may also check this by removing the front and run a load of wash and watch the motor. Please post back your finding to me.
The agitate cycle uses the motor and a spring to function. The spring is made in pieces and asit gets older some of the sections of the spring break. To verify that it is not a loose drum. Ope the washer during the wash cycle andhold the drun by hand. If the noise stops lool for the loose bolts or replace the springs, they may be weak after that many years.
It sounds like the brushes are worn out. The sound you hear could be the brush holders making contact with the commutator or it could be a broken brush. Also check gears for wear. Here is a website that has diagrams and parts. Hope this helps.
