Kenmore washer clacking/clicking noise during agitation

Model 417.97962705 has intermittent clacking only during agitator cycle and only when clothes in tub. Pulled agitator and all looks new. Ran with low level water, med , & hi water w/o clothes and no noise. Add clothes and clacking/clicking begins. Thanks for your time and assistance.

Take off lower panel, 2 screws bottom front # 20 square drive works best but Phillips can be used. Check belt for cracks, run with panel off and listen for noise, Watch idler pulley for rough operation. Let us know what you find.
