My washer will wash and rinse but will not spin fast enough or not at all. I believe there is a slight bearing noise coming from the lower bearing, so I plan to replace it, along with the obviously worn belt and the slightly worn break pads. With the belt off, I spun the transmission and drum by hand. Although it turned freely, it seemed a little heavy for the motor to spin fast enough. Could the transmission be bad? It seems unlikely that a bad bearing would be enough to slow it down, I could be wrong. Any tips or advice is greatly appreciated.

Steve for Model Number SAV2655AWW

ANSWER Hello Steve. If the bearing is bad, it can slow the unit down and even prevent the unit from turning. It sounds like a bearing issue.
