Hello! I've got a front load washer that's been making frighteningly loud banging noises during the high-speed spin cycle. I went to open the rear Access Panel to see what was going on when I saw these dents in it (see pics below). They seem to have come from the Drive Pulley inside. The belt seems fine, it's taut with no cracks or frays. The shocks also seem to be working fine, but I have no washer repair experience. What could cause this? It's not a unbalanced load issue because it happens even when it's empty. I did move recently and took the washer with me between houses. Maybe the dents were caused during the move and something else is causing the banging? I don't know. Any guidance would be appreciated.
