Hey man, sorry to hear about the trouble and I know how frustrating it can be, especially when you're this close to victory. Returning the part is not problem, RepairClinic has the most generous return policy anywhere. The real problem that still remains, however, is determining with certainty the true source of the vibration. My opinion is that it's unlikely that the pulley assembly could have gotten bent in shipping just enough to throw the machine out of whack. For it to affect the balance, it would have to be visibly bent. This is a belt-drive machine-- the belt itself can, and does, absorb minor imbalances from the tub.

I think you were on the right track with the cement weights. In fact, I recall a while back that our washer (same as yours) started making this freaky vibrating noise during spin. Turns out that a couple of the bolts for the counter weights (the right hand one) had worked themselves loose. Re-tightened all and good to go. Focus on that area.
