Answer:

You should pop the top on the unit and remove the outer tub top and the inner drum to see if anything got into the unit. There really is nothing on the unit other than rust that may have formed on the spline where the tub rides on that could be causing that issue. If you remove the drum you should be able to clean it all up though.

All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am credited through the site, tips are appreciated.
