Hello- I just replaced the belt on this washer as it had burnt up and I ran a test load. The washer and belt work just fine with agitation, however upon the spin cycle the belt does not move (does not appear tight enough as motor pulley just spins). If I manually hold the spring in, it will spin. I have already put in two new tub seals and a belt, so want to make sure it is the spring and that's it. Thank you in advance for your help.

ANSWER Hello Chris. If the tub bearing is good and the belt is new, it sounds like the spring 40061401 should repair the problem. Hope this helps.
