My washer knocks, quite loudly, during the agitation cycle. If I take my hand and put downward/outward pressure on the top edge of the tub, the knocking noise is significantly reduced but not quite eliminated. Any idea what could be causing this? As another data point, I replaced the motor coupling a couple years ago.

Thanks in advance for any and all help!

Would it be possible for you to make a video and upload it? Like on YouTube or some other site? The noise could be a lot of different things.

I was hoping there would be audio too, so I could hear the noises.

From watching the video I can tell you need to rebuild the top part of your agitator. They can make a rather annoying noise. As you may know this washer has a ratcheting agitator. inside are four dogs and a thrust washer.

There was audio on the original video. I'm not sure what happened to it. This site is behaving strangely on my computer, constantly refreshing the screen. I will try it again. After I look at the Imgur video again.
