I have a Kenmore series 80 washer SN 110.20882990 it was making grinding and popping noises during the spin cycle which I didn't pay attention to until I had to when the coupler broke.  I replaced the coupler and now it agitates and spins etc but there is still a big problem. During the spin cycle when the tub is emptied of water and the rpms get high there is an increasing grinding noise and the agitator stops suddenly with a loud bang then starts spinning again until it gets up to speed and bangs again. This is not a balance problem as it does it while it is empty and I am watching it. I took the agitator off and found no problems although in working with it I notice that when I spin the agitator by hand it has a grinding feel which "can't be good"

Should I just move this thing out to the curb or is there something else I should try??

Your transmission is wasted. It's trying to spin and agitate at the same time. If it's less thaan 5 years old, the gearcase is under warrenty, but you have to pay the labor costs if it's over 1 year old.
