Hey guys. I’m working another stackable. This one makes a grinding/rubbing noise that is rhythmic at the end of the spin cycle when it is slowing down. I’m going to attach a video. I’ve also taken a picture of the bottom of the tub. There looks to be a gap between that shim and the bearing. Machine sounds great when it is in spin cycle. But when it disengages and slows down is when the noise starts.

@mountainbiker33 please from now on, convert you video file from .mov to .mp4 so we can see it. I did it for you this time.:)

Rick can you play it now?

I can't tell what that is. It sounds like something in the trans but I'm not sure.

@mountainbiker33 Remove the agitator and see if it still makes that noise in spin.
