These machines have an agitator drive block(WH43X10009) that is made of plastic.
These are cheap and easy to replace:

Thank you JWWebster, for the response to my question. I was wondering if this agitator drive block is known for causing this problem? Does it need to be broken to cause this noise or can it just be worn, causing same noise? I am going to look at the part to see if it's broke. Do you think I should replace the part anyway?

Maybe one of the four autobalance shocks causing it? Twist and push down on tub with the cover off and try to isolate where the noise is coming from. Also, maybe a loose belt?
