As soon as spin cycle picks up speed a constant whirring sound not unlike a dry pulley spinning but not shrill like metal on metal. Stops immediately when tub rotation stops. Operates normally in all fuction except for noise.

hi robyn. A washer making a loud noise during spin cycle can also be caused by a faulty drive pulley. The pulley is what the belt (if applicable to yourwasher) rides on to spin your washers tub. The pulley can be made of plastic or metal. It could be simply worn out or just loose.27 Jul 2015
This may well be the drum drive belt in the back of the washing machine. This belt transfers drive from the motor to the drum for both wash cycles and spinning. If the belt is slipping slightly on the pulley then a squeal may well be heard on the spin cycle and will change in pitch as the speed of the drum increases. At lower speeds (wash cycles) the belt probably won't slip. I don't personally know of this model but there is usually a tension adjustment nut/bolt near the motor to tighten the belt and stop it slipping.
First I would bench check the water pump and see if it is operational or not. If it is then I would check the transmission. When it is in the spin cycle it switches to the high speed, so if you hear the grinding only in the spin cycle it could be the high speed gear.
Do you have any indication of a transmission leak? Fluid on the floor or on the transmission?
It's hard to tell without looking at the washer. But my first response would be that the transmission is wearing out. Inside the plastic cover for the adgitator is a metal drive stem. This assembly has a pulley on the bottom where your motor attaches to; inside the bottom of your washer. It is quite common after many years that these go bad. Have you ever noticed unexplained grease or other stains on your clothes after they came out of the wash?
There is 2 possible problems. 1. Pump will make noise as soon as the drain and spin starts. 2. Rear bearing this noise usually starts later in cycle as the drum gets up to final speed. The rear bearing of coarse is the most expensive of the two as it is part of the outer tub.
sounds like the drum is rubbing on some part of an exterior wall of your washer,.or you have a bearing going, or worst case scenario you have transmission problems and need to get a serviceman in to check your machine.But firstI would call the manfacturer and explain the problem they may be able to resolve it over the phone give them model no. Make and year of manfacture they hopefully can help you with this
OTHER THEN CHECKING THE WATER PUMP I THINK YOUR RIGHT THE BEARING ARE GOING,IT WILL WORK FINE TILL THEY LOCKUP THEN THE BELT WILL BURN OFF,BUT I WOULD CHECK THE WATER PUMP ALOT OF TIMES IT JUST THAT,LET ME KNOW -MIKE
