OK. I am working on this stacked Kenmore machine (Frigidaire washer). It washes great and the dryer works well. However, when it agitates, it has a squeak. This squeak is apparent as the transmission turns under the tub. The pulleys and belt are good.

I replaced the agitator drive hub because it was making a rubbing sound as the spin cycle slowed down. That noise is gone. I had another thread about it. sigh....

However, this squeak remains. I don't think it is the spin bearing because it doesn't seem to squeak in spin. It only squeaks in agitation. I was wondering if it was the washer (5308002401) that is under the spin bearing.

I have attached a video.

While it's running and squeaking, shoot the idler pulley with a little WD40.
