Still don't understand exactly what makes the break disengage!
I haven't tried to remove the tub yet but I guess I should.
I do understand what you are saying about the brake. But that still does not answer my question. The drain motor operates on 120v. (how does the drain motor get the 120 to engage the cable and at the correct time to release the brake?)
Generic info, timer/controller tells the motor when to work, in spin mode, generally after water has drained (by pressure switch control), also lid switch and "spin hold/drip dry" if selected in program, will "spring apply" the brake, meaning no power to motor.
