Hi!

2 weeks ago I replaced my washer machine bearings. I tested it with a heavy load and it looked perfect. I ask my wife a couple of time since then and she said it looked okay.

But, today, I heard that same (or very similar) very noisy sounds when spinning at high speed. Inside the washer was many bed sheets so it was a heavy load. When I replaced the bearings I saw that rotor internal spline/gear were pretty used. Same with the agitator.

Here is a video with sound from my cellphone. I slided it under the washer.

Thanks for your help!!

Sounds like the rotor is scraping on the stator because the stator is likely cracked.

Unplug your machine and remove the stator and check your stator to make sure its not cracked first!

Here's the stator for your model(Video to remove it is Included in part link):
