when i first heard the noise i thought it was the belt. after changing that i still heard the noise but louder.
so i took off the bottom face plate took off the door and the bracket holding the tumbler then took out the tumbler to see what was wrong.
being a 6' 4" 250lbs it was hard for me to see what was behind the motor. i finally saw that the idler wheel had come half way off of the lever.
I changed the pulley lever, pulley wheel and all the washers. it was fairly simple. and when done the noise was gone. it only costed me about $15 which made me happy cheap fix.
