Inglis Washer Whining

I have an Inglis top load washer that started whining tonight. It does it during the wash cycle as well as the rinse and spin cycle. It sounds like it is coming from the rear of the washer towards the bottom.

Is the transmission going bad? Are they hard to replace?

Just paid closer attention. It makes the noise during the wash cycle, but it is the loudest as it starts the spin cycle. As it spins up the noise quiets a little but it still there.

Usually water pump; Lean washer back against wall and go under it, unclip water pump from motor. Pull off motor shaft (leave hoses attached) put washer back down and try it in spin again, If noise is gone there is something in pump and usually you will not be able to get it out and will need a new pump.

Thanks, pugsl! I hope that is it! I've replaced it previously and that was easy.

I tried your suggestion, pugsl, and bingo whine went away! Put it back together and whine was back.

Thanks a million!!

On very rare occasions I have been able to get object out but usually you will have to replace pump. It may be a nail stuck in it and pump will run a long time without trouble other than noise.
