My washer was not spinning the water out, it would spin, stop, start over again. I replaced the thrust bearing, it seems a little better but now the tub wants to spin during the wash cycle. When I turn the pulley counterclock wise the brake doesnt release, and the shaft spins freely. Any more suggestions?
ANSWER Weasel, a new brake rotor 35-6714 may be a good idea, you also want to clean up the internal surface of the stator 35-6918 with emory cloth and wash out the assembly with rubbing alcohol. You also want to clean and lubricate the splines on the rotor, so it moves freely on the transmission case. You also want to order additional washers 35-2082 and 35-2132 to achieve the proper tolerances when you re install the thrust bearing kit ( you may need to add or swap) thick vs thin washers,etc. In order to remove the brake stator, you will need to purchase a brake removal tool 12002012 , or take one of the screws out of the stator assembly and take it to a hardware store and purchase two screws the same size and thread pattern, but 2 to 3 inches long, so you can remove the stator safely.
