KAWE850VAL washer noises after tranny repair


I repaired my tranny in my KAWE850VAL washer a year ago. It works fine but....
When it starts agitating it makes a squealing sound. It is not a squeal..squeal..squeal like from agitator movement. It is a squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll. Constant as in the tranny input gears before the agitate. Then when it spins there is a slight metal to metal rubbing sound.

Works fine but I worry that I will have more repairs from worn parts eventially.
Any adea what it is? I assume I put something in wrong instead of not something not put in at all.

Check the drain pump to see if something is caught in it.
The pump rotates one direction during agitation and the other direction during spin and maybe why it's makes the two different noises.

Common problem that I see a lot. Let us know what you find or if you have any other questions.
