Hi all. I believe that I have a similar issue as was discussed in this thread:
http://appliantology...__1#entry148049

My Cabrio wtw5640xw is making a grinding noise. I can hear this when it is agitating and spinning, and gets pretty loud when the impeller starts going for the pump. I am hoping that a dime or trash has gotten loose and needs to be removed. Can someone point me to how I could take a look to see if this is indeed the case? I have had this machine for less than a year.

Thanks!

Tip the washer forward or lay it down on it's front panel. Go around back, pump is on the bottom, LHS. You can see it on the bottom photo in this post => http://fixitnow.com/...lacement-guide/

It's the top pump in that pic.

I recently worked on a similar Cabrio washer. The pump in the rear is easily accessible. Be ready for residual water flowing out. I found a dime in the pump and a sock ready to go in to it. The problem with this one was no spin. I ran the auto diagnostic and the tests, and eventually pulled the inner tub out and found gym trunks, a speedo swimsuit and coins in the bottom of the outer tub. They were stopping the spin when the water level was low. It isn't difficult to remove the inner tub.
