Dennis for Model Number lwa60aw

ANSWER Dennis, You may want to try this first, otherwise you'll need a new complete transmission. order a revised helix 27001228 and set of spacers/washers 40065701 and 40063201 (you may want to order 2 of these washers) When you install the parts(you may need to add that additional washer) the gap between the pulley and the helix cams should not exceed 3/8 in. in the relaxed mode (the less the gap the better 5/16 in. is ideal) if you can't get a proper adjustment or the isuue returns quickly, the indication would be, the transmission input shaft is pulling out of the pinion gear and you'll need to replace the transmission and associated parts. Good Luck and Thanks
