I'll admit I don't love it, but it's funny how many times I hear customers say "Sears wouldn't do it" or "A-1 said they don't touch them" or "Dial One wanted $800 in labor".
I had a guy call up and say "If you can change the transmission in my Kenmore(Frigidaire) Stack, I'll give you $600. So I took the challenge. I got $167 in the transmission, seal, baring and hub. (Got a new 134612102 from Ebay for $114 Shipped) . So it will be a good job.
I know it's a pain, but is it really that bad? To me it's easier than changing a bearing in an agitator less top load.
I want to learn how to rebuild them. I picked up two nice Whirlpools this week with bad tranny's.
Around here it seems like if I start doing them, I'll be one of the only ones.
