Moved my washer and now it's making a knocking noise
As the title says, just moved the washer and now it is making a pretty loud knocking noise during the agitation cycle. Any ideas on what it could be? FWIW, the washer wasn't moved by vehicle. I just finished a new laundry room so it just moved inside the house.

It is a Maytag MVWB765FW. Only about 9 months old.

First thing to check is the level.

This. Your floor could be uneven (tile?). The washer should have adjustable legs so you can make it level.

Also, make sure you are loading it evenly. It's common for people to put a couple of pair of jeans on one side of the washer but only put a couple t-shirts or underwear on the opposite side. Once the clothes are wet, the lobsided weight causes an imbalance and can result in knocking.

Yeah that was the first thing I did. It is level. It's odd to me that it's only happening during the agitation cycle.
