The washer makes a loud (grinding?) noise and shakes the drum during agitation only. If I hold the drum more stable, the noise is reduced. Spin is good, no noise no shake. I opened the front and found some black dust/greasy stuff in the bottom of the pan. Any ideas? Thanks for the help!

I have posted a video with sound below:

Thanks Rick. I inspected all of the rods and they are in good shape. However upon inspection and shaking them a bit I did discover the problem. At least one of them needed some lubrication and the creaking that I heard was just the plastic on plastic. Gave it a little lube and it's good to go now. Thank you!
