3 years old. Model number is *****

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Can you tip the unit up against the wall and see if the center bolt is tight? Also is the noise only during agitate not during spin?
