washer noise


this noise starting coming from my top load washer on the spin cycles, and i think it is coming from the motor or pulley under it. Anyone know how to fix or pinpoint this issue? it has gotten a little worse and it is louder with a bigger load. here is a video with the sound, can't really see but i opened up the front of it.

imposable to say, your video is terrible,but it sounds like either a bad pulley, a bad idler, or bad belt

Does that machine even have a belt? Bad video, but reminds me of a direct drive. If so, check the motor coupler.

it does have belt i found the problem, it is a bad water pump, the bearing is coming apart and has caused the shaft to bend on the pump.
