During the operation of the wash machine I heard a loud squealing. I shut the machine off, drained the water and when I tilted the machine back I noticed that the motor pulley had some melted plastic material all inside the pulley. I removed the pulley and the pieces came off. Can't tell what it was and I don't believe that it was part of the pulley. The motor, transmission and pump all spin freely. No marks on either the transmission pulley or the water pump. To my luck they no longer manufacture just the pulley. I would have to purchase the complete motor which comes with the $4.00 pulley. Do I have a problem here, or do I just reinstall the pulley and hope for the best? I replaced the belt a few months back. There is some battle damage to the belt at this time with a little melted plastic stuck to it. Thanks for your time.
