final spin racket
Trying to trouble shoot the loud noise on the final spin. Seems to be mostly the outer rubber cowling that is flapping violently. When empty there is very little noise, and just a bit of creaking noise at 1 x/ revolution when turning by hand. Its in the drum, as I have removed the belt from the motor to turn. There is a bit of free play between the inner basket and outer basket ( up & down) more noticeable in one particular position of rotation, and no in or out free play. Reading thru these posts, I see probably its the bearing/rear outer tub, but I also see mention of the inner tub and spider arm (not sure what that is as no pic on the parts page. The shocks seem OK as there is even and equal movement when pushing the whole tub assembly around by hand. Please let me know if more info is needed.
