3D printer is printing ovals

I am new to 3D printing and I just got a FlashForge Finder. I noticed that it wasn't printing circles correctly, but it was printing ovals! FlashForge said I needed to align the x and the y axis. So I did that and it's still printing the same way! Not sure what else to do.
It is tough to say what the exact problem is going based off of one picture but I will give it a shot. The first question I have is, have you been watching to see what the printer is doing during the print? I know we can see the exact output of the printer but if you watch it, do you hear anything or seen anything out of place?
If you were to print a cube you would be able to measure out the exact X and Y dimensions which would help with finding the solution.
I have not cracked open a Finder in a good long while but I recall them having some couplers holding the X and Y axis rods on the motor shafts, these could be loose. So lets see what the Cube shows and from there we will know a bit more.
