My washing machine is making clunking sounds when it slows down from the spin cycle. I paid a repair man to come out and diagnose it and he told me it was the bearings and pulled up a clutch repair system for me to get. I purchased toe clutch repair kit and replaced it tonight but the machine is still making the same sounds. I'm beginning to think I was told to order the wrong part. So now I think I need to replace the bearings and need a bearing kit ???? Any suggestions?? And is there a how to video on how to replace bearings?
ANSWER Heather, it sounds more like a worn out "drive block" 389140 and / or "basket drive" 285792. if the channels in the drive block are worn , or the top tabs on the basket drive have rounded out, when the brake is engaged and the washer stops, the tub continues to rotate on the basket drive and makes a very loud thumping noise. You will also need a spanner wrench TJ90TB123A to remove the spanner nut from the drive block. Both the parts needed do have a service video attached, so you should do fine.
