i'll pull the back panel off again tonight after work and post some pics and more details of what I'm seeing...

from what i've been reading it sounds like the bearings - there usually is a lot of noise during the spin cycle (especially when its going full speed)

ill post back tonight with hopefully more info and pictures

thanks again

Sorry I didnt get around to pulling the pulley off the tub tonight but here are some photos with the pulley on.  As you can see it almost looks like someone threw paint on it as it was spinning - assuming thats some of the issues you were looking for.  You can see that the brownish/red junk is all over the back and around the sides of the washer - looks like it came from the center of the pulley/tub and spun all over the place?

If I get a chance before work tomorrow I'll take the pulley off and post more findings - otherwise I probably won't have a chance to post back until Thursday

Thanks for the help and patience.

Yep, that is what I was looking for.
I can tell from them last photos that you have bearing problems.
I am sure that is whats making your belt run off the pulley too.

Thanks for posting the photos.

Alright - bearing problem. 

Am I looking at an easy fix (or more important not expensive) or is this going to be a costly fix and should I just scrap the washer and go back to using my old one.  I'd like to be doing the repair myself since the cost of paying someone won't be worth it since I do have another option with the backup washer.

You will need this part for sure.


You would have to remove the inner tub to check the shaft that goes through the bearing, but I would guess it would need to be replaced too.

That would be this part.

With just them two parts your looking close to $400.00   :o

If it was mine I would junk it. :)
