Washer - squeaky noise (with video links)
Hello all, I have a loud squeak in my Whirlpool Cabrio 5500 washer, looking for help to diagnose?

Here are (2) 30-second long videos I took:

1) Squeaky noise - Whirlpool Cabrio 5500 washing machine - YouTube
2) Squeaky noise - Whirlpool Cabrio 5500 washing machine #2 - YouTube

The noise happens during the sensing phase as well as the spin phases. It's interesting to note that I can NOT recreate this noise manually (i.e. reaching in and manually rotating the tub).

Thanks for the time and advice!

Need to lay machine on it's front to access the bottom. Remove the belt guard and check the nut that holds the large pulley on. If it's loose, apply blue 242 loctite and tighten nut.

Just took a look underneath, but the pulley and the bolts holding it on all appear fine. Nothing loose. Thanks for the suggestion, but any other ideas?
