As noted in the title. Have replaced the belts and still screeching. Wondering if a failed bearing, brake, transmission could be the cause. I can turn the agitator pulley CCW freely and with some resistance CW. Any help is appreciated.

Spray the motor base plate and glides with some WD40. Work the motor back and forth with your foot. Make sure the belts are not too tight. If you pinch the belt in the middle you should be able to touch both sides (figure 8).
