Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.
Check real good all the way around the inner tub make sure you don't have a nail or screw sticking and one of the holes, if you do that's probably what's scraping and causing this issue or you also need to check under your agitator itself to make sure there's nothing under there that stuck between them, sometimes you can lose one of those metal buttons or something like that in the can get stuck up underneath so check that also and let me know, thanks, Bryan
Just ran another load with the front cover off. The pump is definitely leaking and the high pitch squeal seems to be coming from the pump; although, isolation of the noise definitely to the pump is not possible. During the first spin cycle, the top of the tub was moving back and forth about 1 to 1.5 inches, but this is perhaps within normal range.
Also, when I hit the green accept answer button above to accept your last response, they wanted me to pay another $30, which is contrary to what you initially told me. I just closed the browser instead. If I have to pay another $30 to end this session, I will not be too happy.
