Just chalked up another lesson... Finally got it apart. Transmission fine. Ok, I'm an idiot. It was such an odd noise, like metal grating on plastic. I couldn't pin it down earlier. Re-assembled. Thought it was somehow a bad plastic coupler, even though it looked fine. Tried it again re-assembled. Same noise. Looked much harder to pin it down. So simple. Something in the drain hose against the pump slightly. Bra wire!!! Wire.jpg 24.12KB 1 downloads How could it get there??? Who knows. Removed. Works great.
