I have been fishin for the last 2 hours. I caught an old cork and a lawn chair.The only thing biting was the skeeters. Pretty day for it 75 degrees slight breeze out of the gulf. The only thing catching fish were the pelicans. My 2 grand boys enjoyed it immensely.

I'm jealous. .. . .   You were outside in the sun. . ..  I woke up to a fresh blanket of snow and a broken washer.  Glad to hear you got out with your grandsons! 

I have sent a PDF shipping label via email.

Thanks,

Trevor

The label was / is actually for the regular Post Office (USPS) and unfortunately they won't have clue if you were to take it there without the label.  Neither would UPS if I printed a label that way.

The label will have to be printed first.  I have sent it to you again as just a JPG image.  This should work. . . .let me know.   The post office will have a small free box available that the label will work on.

Thanks,

Trevor

OK I found a nice FSP water valve box and I placed the gear that is in the ziplock bag inside the box and I put the printed label on the box and she is ready to go. The UPS store is closed but the UPS guy should swing by here Monday and I will give it to him. I have mailed hundreds of these from my appliance parts store before I retired. I think she will fly.

Thanks for all your efforts! . . .. . .   The label I sent is for the Post Office not UPS.  Please hand it to the post man not the UPS man.

Thanks,

Trevor

That lable looks real simular than UPS lables we had at work. Anyway I have sent it on it's way. I went to the post office(only a block away from here) I handed it personally to the mail clerk.

I am sitting enjoying an ice cold beer!  I only wish that I could buy JWWebster one and enjoy one with him right now!

THANK YOU JWWebster for all your help and your efforts in sending the new gear for my tranny.

The gear arrived in the mail this afternoon and I took the tranny completely apart and cleaned all the crud out and put it back to together with the new gear.  This sort of seemed overwhelming at first but actually was quite easy.

My washer is purring quietly and even better. . .. . my wife is just as quiet. . .  now that she can quit going to the laundromat.

Looks like I started celebrating too early. . . .

After about 4 loads the washer ain't purring no more!  Though it is still "working". . .  it sounds bad.  It clanks real bad until it comes up to speed.  Sometimes when you lift the lid you can see that the brake is not engaging.   Interestingly, when the brake does not engage to slow the tub. . . .   If you start the motor again before it stops on it's own. . . . the clanking does not occur.  Sometimes the brake does not seem to disengage when you start the washer.  Again. . . .  I need help knowing where to begin. . . It seems that my problem has to do with the brake.  because this is all a bit hard to explain I put it on video and uploaded it here:  http://www.youtube.com/v/Ugj84hHEyGA

It sounds like a bad basket drive/clutch assembly from here.

Awesome!

I think a video can be a great tool. It can help a lot when trying to explain what is going on with a appliance. It is so helpful when you can see and hear what the appliance is doing.

I added your video to our Appliance YouTube GroupO0

I wondered about this from the start and even mentioned it in my 3rd post.  At first glance. . . everything looks good on the clutch assembly but with a second look . . . . the pads are quite worn.  The pictures below are of the clutch the first time I took it apart.  I have not yet taken it apart for the second time but assume it likely looks the same.  Do you think it is just worn pads or a weak spring?   I suspect the clutch was actually my initial problem that caused stress to the tranny and thus broke the main gear.  Is this plausible?  I hope I did not screw it up again.

JWWebster if I send you another shipping label do you mind sending me your clutch?

Thank you again for your help!
