So the original complaint was that it was making knocking noise and eventually the belt fell off.

 

When I went into to back the nut holding the wheel on was a loose and the wheel had been cutting into the tub.

 

I plan on replacing the belt, but when I tighten everything up, the wheel is still out of true.

 

Should I replace the wheel and the belt, and call it good? or is there something else wrong?

 

Thanks

If the wheel is bent I would change it. It could cause issues in the future.

Dont waste your time replacing that pulley...you have a broken basket support spider or a failed tub bearing, possibly both. Either way, this machine is toast and not worth repair.

I should have looked at the pics. Hes right, looks like bad bearings. I can see the oil splatter in the second pic near the mcu. Not worth fixing.
