So, while I was waitin for a reply, I took a good look at the picture of the piece that was sent to me, and compared it to my piece. I don't think it is broken. I have since tried to move the transmission shaft by hand and it will not rotate. Is this normal? the input shaft from where the motor coupler attaches to will move smoothly, but the long shaft will not. It is like when the agitater is attached.

If you turn it one direction the brake will engage and you can not turn it. Try to turn it the other direction and the brake should release and it will turn as it turns the wash basket.

The video above in this topic shows it being turned in one direction, but not the other. That is how it should work.

Do you mean the long shaft on the transmission?

Sorry, I was talking about that white piece on the brake you had a photo of and asked if it was broken.

As for the tranny you should be able to turn the motor coupler by hand, just like the motor would turn it and see the long saft agitate back and forth. Should be easy to do and see with the tranny out of the washer.

Is the tranny leaking any oil?

take a look in the far left column

look for videos, Washer Videos page 1

of the 9 videos displayed look at the one in the lower left corner (watch them all, later, even on Washer Videos page 2)

the guy removed it with one hand (other hand holding camcorder)


edit: sorry, I was responding to a question on page1, didn't see the page 2  :o

I tried moving the white piece like the video showed. It moved like the video, but it was very hard to move in the counter clock wise direction. There is no evidence of oil leaking out of the transmission. The shaft will not turn when i turn the shaft where the coupler goes onto.

They are hard to turn as you are turning the inside wash basket as you turn that. A lot of weight is on there to turn.

You should be able to turn it. I would say the tranny is bad.

Ok that's what I'm talking about. the clutch assembly turns smooth, the white piece moves, but the transmission shaft ain't moving a bit.

The small shaft were the motor coupler goes on should turn fairly easy. Wish I would have shown that in the video. Guess I will have to make another one showing the too. Leave the black rubber piece on the half of the coupler that is still on the tranny. Then put a flat blade screwdriver in one of the slots of the rubber coupler and turn it around each direction. Turning it one way you will see the long shaft at the top of the tranny agitate back and fourth. Turn it the other way and you will see the clutch that is on top the tranny spin in one direction.

Enter that part number in the RepairClinic box in the top right of this site and they have it for $145.00

Buying the part from repairclinic also helps support this site. :)

I've tried turn the shaft and no go. If I had the time to mail order, I would definetly use this site's supplier, but this machine has been down a few days, and I may be out of town next week.
