Hi there,

Washer has been acting up during wash cycle. Really bad screeching sound coming from it, seems in tune to how the tub moves. I took a look under the hood and couldn't see much due to everything being closed in, but I took a plastic guard off and a plastic gear that's moved by a small belt seems to be loose, but I couldn't tighten it.

There's also some black exhaust on the floor under where the washer sits.

I took a video of it going, not sure how to share that...
