From the model and description I suspect the transmission is the cause of the noise. One thing to look for is if the basket is turnng while it is agitating. The basket shouldn't be turning and if it is then the brake on the transmisson has failed. When stopped check if the basket has a lot of up and down play then the basket hub that holds the spin basket might be loose. The image below shows how to remove the front panel so you can get a better look and listen for the source.

If you see nothing else then most likely the noise is the transmission.

All that is moving is the transmission. You're clear on the fact the noise happens no place else only in agitation.

One thing to try is to remove the agitator and see if the noise continues.

A model number would be helpful in looking up information on this particular model.

Please reply with a model number for further assistance.
