With the front cover off, the noise seems to be coming from the gear box area, uder neath the tub assembly. If I could just see under the tub assembly, I could pin point the noise, but I don't know how to get top, back or sides off to see what is happening. I have a Kenmore and I remove some screws and lift the whole outside cabinet off. I am at a loss on getting the cabinet off.
Thanks for the information. The problem is the gear box. I junked the machine because of the expense of replacing the gearbox. I will pay the $24 for the information you provided but not $48. I don't know where the additional $24 came in, unless it was when I lost contact with you and tried reestablish contact. Again thank you for the information and your assistance. I will use your services again when I run into another problem.
