I have a 2 year old roper washer with negligible wear, that stopped during the rinse cycle and I found the brake shoe was rubbing against the brake drum binding the transmission and motor stopping the rinsing operation. Removed the basket drive and the brake looks good but the brake lining is still rubbing against the brake drum making it very difficult to rotate the basket drive. Do you have any suggestion? Thank you gary

Gary for Model Number IV45001

ANSWER Hello Gary. What you are providing is not really a solution to your issue. The information you provided is correct operation. If the motor is humming and the unit does not spin, but will agitate. It is not the brake assembly, it is a bad timer. The motor must change directions to release the brake in the unit. If the timer is bad, and sends power to both motor terminals, you will need to order and replace the timer on the unit.
