Hello, first post. I'm usually fairly adept at fixing stuff, so if I could find out what's wrong I might be able to muddle through. My Kenmore washer #4780292 has developed a high pitch scream during spin, lower pitch whine during wash, and a clunk after it starts up when I close the lid to check what the darn noise is during the spin cycle. The noise seems to coincide directly with the speed of agitation. I have seen some posts suggesting possible fixes (bearings, transmissions, etc.), but nothing that seems specific to my problem. The washer appears to work well otherwise, but have have ignored warnings in the past that have stated "thou shalt not continue to use an appliance when it's screaming like a banshee".
