replaced brake assembly as your previous email suggested. still no spin. pump works both directions water does drain out. agitation cycle works well. motor pulley hot with slight burnt smell on new transmission drive belt. radial bearing looked ok but i didn't check that close. installed pulley bearing dome side facing brake. turned pulley clockwise on shaft until light resistance felt ;then installed drive lug about 3/8-1/2 inch from pulley stop lug. No luck. pulley tightens by turning clockwise and comes to a stop. counterclockwise offers no resistance. clockwise means same way pulley was threaded onto shaft. assume motor is fine becausr belts spin both ways. have not replaced motor tension springs. without belts, motor slides along carriage fine. thanks but help!

ANSWER Donald, Did you remove the tub cover and check for an article stuck between the tubs ? When you turn the drive pulley clockwise, there should be some resistance, then the tub and transmission should start to turn/rotate. If you hear a high pitched click, and the tub and trans start to turn, or the pulley becomes very hard to turn clockwise and the parts don't start to turn, you have a seized tub bearing and will need to replace it and the seal 6-2095720 6-2040130
