Hi APP, Original problem was agitate okay but not spin cycle. First was knocking during the spin, then later spin became nonfunctional. The main problem was the spin gear in the transmission was worn out. I replaced the transmission, clutch, the worn out motor coupling, drive block, spanner nut and dog ears. After repairs completed, I ran an empty tub load on a complete cycle to test it all. Agitated and spin cycle both working great. Half hour later ran same test again for second time, same as before to double check function. Agitated great but this time zero spinning, no knocking, no noise, no nothing. What is causing this? If it's the basket drive, do you have removal and installation instructions? I wasn't able to remove to inspect during the repairs. Thanks.

ANSWER Hello Paul, It's a very good possibility that the basketdrive 285792 is the issue, especially if any oil got on it. To get it out, you drop the transmission and look straight up to see it. Get hold of the part in the center and rotate it while turning it. I think you rotate it counterclockwise. When it comes out, reinstallation is similar. Rotate it as you push it in and it makes the job an easy one.
