I have an Amana HE washed model number NTW4516FW1 and it is making a loud growling noise on the wash cycle only. It is totally quiet all during all the other cycles. I attached a video of the noise it is making.

Thanks, yes I heard it.

Take the agitator off, then run a small cycle with no clothes in it and see if makes that sound when the transmission shaft is moving by itself.

Here's the agitator for your model:
285565 Complete Agitator Assembly


There is a video in the part link that shows you how to remove the agitator.

Let us know what you find.
