I pulled the machine away from the wall to repair a problem with the stand pipe and then pushed the machine back into place.  I failed to level the machine before running it again, and now it makes a horrid screaching noise in all phases of opperation.

My only thought is that it sounds like a fan belt on a car that is slipping or the sound of a power steering system run dry.  The belt has thrown flecks in all directions, but it doesn't SEEM too bad.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Would belt dressing help?

Thanx,

Mark

Are the flecks wet or oily? Could be a leaking tub seal or simply a worn belt that needs replacing. Post a picture if you can.
