Loud grinding/whining sound that emanates from lower left of washer - does this portend any particular failure?  pump, bearings, etc.

 

Cleaned tub interior and found piece of wine glass - Next step is to clean out impeller/pump housing and see what I find.

Sounds like you may need this seal kit as sometime objects ruin this kit as it tries to chop up anything that gets down into the pump sump.

Thanks for the response.  Would the symptom for needing the seal kit be leakage underneath? 

 

Checked underneath the "hood" and definitely is the main motor/pump.  Just finished removing pump impeller, housing and cleaned a couple of hard items out (olive pit, walnut shell) and put it back together and noise may have gone - ran a quick rinse and then cancel drain with no noise.  running through a normal cycle now and so far no similar noise.  Will report back

That would be one of them.  The seal also includes new impellers and a bunch of other guts.  Easy job, worth doing. How-to video here:  http://www.repaircli...er=665.15972991
