Purchased new Kickr and it is making a very loud knocking noise! I tried to upload video but it wouldn’t allow. Anyone have this issue and know the fix?

A Kickr Core?
A noise like this?

This is mine, and it was collected today to be replaced as faulty. Hopefully the replacement will be ok.

The knocking is from the drive pulley under the plastic cover the drive key is imperial 3/16 and should be 5mm once that is changed that stops the play in the connection also the washer holding the pulley is not thick enough which does not help a 3mm thick washer or 2 together is better.
After this is all done things will be fine shame it’s just small part that costs vertually nothing that causes this
