For Whirlpool Neutral Drain Transmission (Part Number: AP3096209)

The machine just recently started making a high-pitch whining noise during the wash and spin cycles. I tested the clutch by stopping the tub with my hands during the spin cycle start up. I removed the drive spindle, transmission, and motor and found the clutch band and lining needs to be replaced. Question: With the transmission flat on the floor and stationary and the spindle vertical, I find some wiggle in the spindle. In other words, I can move the top of the spindle around slighly. This seems like it could be a logical part of the design - or should the spindle be rigidly mounted to the transmission?

ANSWER DMiller, The transmission spindle will have just a slight movement but should not have much at all. The clutch lining going bad would cause the whining noise.
