You say the washer makes noise in agitation and that it drains but you don't mention if it will spin.

Noise in agitation is usually associated with the transmission.

If the washer is making noises in agitation but is not agitating or if it will not spin or agitate the motor coupler may be the problem. The motor coupler if broken could be a source of noise.

A broken coupler could be an economical do-it-yourself but a transmission would mean replacement.

A little more detail would be helpful in resolving this problem but you can start by removing the washer cabinet to make a visual check of the coupler.

The washer can be run with the cabinet off if desired. Use caution if running with the cabinet off.

If the coupler is okay then most likely the problem will be the transmission.

Check your email for images showing how to remove the cabinet. Your particular washer has two end caps that must be removed to access the two screws holding the console down.

I hope this information is helpful to you but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.
