Using the diagrams from the website, I was trying to determine the source of the noise. Thought I was losing the clutch, but then determined from your website that this model has no clutch. Turned out to be a couple of pieces from the agitator coupling had broken off, and were riding between the agitator and the tub. Cleaned out the plastic and the washer worked. Then ordered and replaced the coupling. Would have only taken about 15 minutes, but I dropped a screw down in the outer tub, and had to fish it out.
