GE Top Load- WWRE5240D1WW

I just returned home from a deployment to hear my washer making, what I feel, is an annoying amount of noise. I haven't been home and can not determine if this is "normal." She isn't any help since she hardly does the laundry and doesn't pay attention to anything when she does the laundry.

If somebody is able to listen/ watch the video and confirm if I am crazy or I am really hearing/seeing excessive noise/ movement in my washer.
As far as functionality, the unit is behaving properly and washing the clothes.

Thank you ahead of time!

Sounds like the bottom shipping rod standoffs are rubbing against the bottom pan possibly.

There is a service bulletin out on these were in a certain year they had a problem with the front
support apron being to weak and bending down in front letting the two shipping rod standoffs rub
the bottom of the pan under the pulley area.

I appreciate the information, it gave me a great place to start looking. Now, I have observed no contact between anything and the standoff's. However, I see that my tub assembly is hanging a little lower than expected and very loose. I am able to regenerate the noise during agitation with my hand and little effort. I believe that my suspension components are worn and that I need to replace the 4 support rods...

On this model suspension components can be found here:

Are you checking the bottom shipping rod standoffs for contact with the bottom pan with tub full of water?

That would be the only time they should even come close to touching. If you have recently moved the machine and possibly dropped it on top of something it could also have pushed the bottom pan up slightly.

The suspension rods should be able to bottom out completely to the end of there range of movement and still not let
anything touch, so I really doubt you have a problem with any of the suspension rods and the straps are ok if none
are broken.
