Remove the front panel inspect the innards for signs of leaking: streaks, rust, etc. Run the washer and try to locate the source of the noise visually. Fill the tub to maximum level and watch for leaks. Report your findings here. Photos may be helpful.

The machine does need to be dissassembled all the way down to the base plate :(, not unlike the simpler Maytag bearing seal changeout. If youre handy with tools, you ought to be able to handle it.

This machine requires a special cloth coated belt so that it give the correct clutching action, (slips until water is all drained before bringing tub to full spin speed).
If you installed a regular auto belt the rubber belt will grip to tight and with a full load of water overload the motor for too long tripping your circuit breaker or the thermal overload in the motor.
Here's the belt you should have installed: Part# 27001007 CLICK HERE

There is some moisture and some rust around what appears to be the outer race of the upper bearing just below the tub .
Welcome to Hell
Nobody wants to do this job. Appliance techs in homes for the criminally insane don't want to do this job.
Willie gives sound advice. Only use the factory-authorised replacement belt.
