Hi,
The washer squeaks during agitation every time the transmission turns. It works fine and the squeaking isn't too loud. I've tried WD-40 on all the bearings that I can reach to see if it's one of them, but it still squeaks. I've attached wave file. If needed, I can try to record a short .gif. Thanks.
yours,
Martin

Hi Martin,

I'd first check your drive block, Unscrew the agitator cap, then you will see the bolt that holds your agitator in, just remove it and the agitator will pull up, then you can see if the drive block is stripped on the transmission shaft.

Here's the drive block for your model:
Drive Block 134418700
