Question about Washing Machines
I dont want to tell you this but this is probably why someone else sold it. Sounds like it has a bad bearing. It is possible that its a belt (unless its direct drive. they have no belt) Its also possible that its the water pump. If its neither of these 2 its in the transmissioin assembly.
If you can remove the pump from the movment of the motor and spin it by hand you might tell But if its direct drive I think the pump is direct drive also look for a lose coupeling on the pump to motor assembly, if this is okay you'd have to take the pump all the way off. Some water is always left behind so you'll have to cover the motor and remove the hoses. see how it "feels" when you give it a spin in both directions. And since you now have the pump removed and its open let it spin and if it makes noise now it has to be either the motor or the transmission.
Hope this helps you out. Sorry I couldnt have better news or an easir way. Please rate me accordingly and good luck.
