remove the front panel and make sure the bottom panel wasnt damaged during delivery. if it was bent it will contact the transmission pulley during agitation.

Perhaps the shipping rod, item location #377 on the above diagram may not have been removed before installation.

Push downwards between the top and front to release that front panel. Watch the tub while the washer is doing a batch or make another movie Kimosabe.
