CUDOS to the Samuri Repair Man!!!!!!!! You got it right on the button! The pulley had play in it and the nut felt tight. It was not. (Always check things twice) Before i put everything back together, i decided to take the nut off and check the shaft and the slot on the pulley for wear. there was none so i tightened everything up tight. You said to tighten the nut and the noise is gone! I SHOULD have been drinking BEER when i was troubleshooting. NEVER do this stuff SOBER!!!Thank-you !!!! Here's what my washer sounds like now.

I looked up some parts on "repairclinic.com". it seems that the bearing do not come separately and only come with the rear drum assembly. Is this true or can i buy just the bearings?

OK, I'm learning about washing machines and that sometimes you need to check things more than once and in two different ways. I grasped the outer drum differently and the inner drum "DOES" move up and down. I took the belt off on the back. The large pulley is not cracked or broken but in DOES have "play" in it even though the nut is tight. When i hold the back of the outer drum and wiggle the pulley......i get the exact knocking noise when the machine is running. Bearings, that is what my first thought was after listening to my co-workers complain about their front load washers and the bearings failing within the first year. Front Bearings were mentioned in the previous post, are there more than one set of bearings to the drum? and what parts do i need or where do i look them up? I'm prepared for a shock because my co-workers opted for a new machine as opposed to repairs, But we're talking SEARS. I'm sure they are more expensive.

At first, the noise seemed to come from the left side. But after I took the top and front panel off, it was just even from all over, that's why i took the video from above and below. As you can see in the video, the outer drum moves hardly at all so i thought that might rule out a loose counterweight or magnet. Nothing feels loose around the drum. Is there anything in between the inner and outer drums? I haven't taken the back off yet because we do at least 4 loads a day.......everyday, have for the past 8 years. This is a busy machine. I'll pull it out and look at the back tomorrow.
