That model number that you posted appears to be the part number for the owner's manual. I cross referenced that part number back to the Whirlpool Calypso washers that use it. It appears that you have a Whirlpool Calypso washer that is model GVW9959KL2, GVW9959KQ2 or GVW9959KT2.

Based on the model that you have, you could have a problem with the wash plate or the universal joint in the drive system that is causing that noise. You can unplug the washer and check the drive components inside the spin basket. The image below shows how to access those components inside the washer. You may find an item that is stuck underneath the wash plate.

If you find no apparent problems in that area, then I recommend that you reassemble the washer and have a service technician examine it. You can schedule service through this page: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for a very good question & description of the problem. From what you described it sounds like there is a blockage of some kind down around the check ball chamber. This model uses check balls to divert water in either a recirculation mode or drain out mode. If something blocks the check ball movement you will have this symptom.

First, disconnect power to the washer, remove the pump hoses & check there for lint blockage.

Second, remove the rear panel to check the check ball chamber pump hose ports.

You will need to be very careful checking the outer tub pump ports; there are razor sharp fins inside. Use a small screwdriver & good work light to try & see if anything is blocking the check balls from freely moving around. The only way to completely access the check balls is to remove the inner basket of the washer. This may require a service technician.

I am sending you images from the service manual that explain how the check balls operate on this model of Kenmore washer.
