Any thoughts about what this noise might be? Just started on my Speed Queen AWN542. I'm thinking it's the bottom pulley area. Any thoughts on best approach are appreciated!

Unplug the washer and take the belt off, then plug it back in and start it right there when its making this noise, so we can see if its a motor noise or a idler pulley noise.

If the motor alone turns without that noise, then check your idler pulley to see if that's where the noise is coming from, if so order this kit below.

Here's the belt and Idler pulley kit for your model:

Took the belt off and noise stopped. I replaced the idler pulley and that fixed the problem. Thanks.
