I ws investigating a leaking upper tub seals and noticed when the tub is spinning and you open the lid, the tub stops very abruptly like one quick jolt. It seems too aggressive to be normal. Should I replace a part of the brake while I've got it apart?

Brian for Model Number mav7600aww

ANSWER Hello Brian. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the brake 35-6714 is working properly. It should stop very quickly. This is the way it is designed. Hope this helps.
