8289WS Bathroom Floor creaking

Just started this morning, a creaking noise when stepping on the bathroom floor in front of the shower. Has anyone with the 8289 noticed this? Has anyone found a fix for this. A bit irritating since this is a new unit.

Ours has done the same since new. Haven't found anything from looking from basement. Also have a small squeak near island from time to time. Will have dealer look after I take the cover off this spring. I also have issues with shower door hanging at the bottom corner on the handle side. Depends on level of unit for how bad it is. I try to remember these are lightweight units and you will get more floor flex and the like. If you find out anything, please post it. If I get something from dealer I'll post too.

I have a slight floor creak at the door area entering the bathroom, I have had that since I got the unit, hasn't got any worst, it by the area that the heat register is in. The only way that I know to stop that is to box in the register boot. You have to remember that they just cut the opening in the floor which will cause a weak spot. but I do not have any in the bathroom area at all. There is plywood down there and the floor composite over that. That could be the problem which could be the composite not being screwed down, so it has a little movement. But that's just a guess. Every time I open that shower door I think it going crack, but it's water tight.
