Check the idler pulley. Whirlpool made a couple years production with a slip pad idler instead of a roller(which worked great for 40 years). The slip pad design was a total failure ( noise, broken belts, and more noise) If yours has the gray slip pad instead of the wheel, install a new roller type pulley part # 691366 and a new belt # 341241.

Whirlpool went back to using the original roller type idler
