I replaced the belt, and there is a loud knocking noise when in agiatates, and when it spins gets out of balance have to hold down to stop from moving it around. We releveled the unit a few times. Unit seams to wash, spin, and clean clothes fine.
ANSWER Brian, Your next check should be at the thrust bearing assembly 12002213. If the cams, washers, etc. are worn and distorted, the brake and transmission gears wont engage properly and can cause both the symptoms you've described.
