My washer will go into the spin cycle and will spin but not fast enough. The motor will eventually kick off and after a few seconds will start again. Thinking this could be the motor I replaced it but it made no difference. Is this a transmission issue and what component would be defective?
Answer Hi. Lift the top and remove the top cover. Remove the agitator. Look to see if the agitator drive hub part #  is not damaged and not holding the agitator tight back and forth on the transmission shaft or the agitator itself. Remove the inner tub. Look at the tub mount trunnion assy part # 131545101 to see if the plate part # 137107000 and the bolt part # 137539500 is broken and cocked off the transmission shaft. Then if all this is intact, look in between the inner and the outer tub. Make sure there are no balled up clothes in the basket. Remove the front cover. Look at the bottom of the tub to see if there are any water or dirty water coming out there to flush out the upper spin bearing part # 3204405 and allowing it to seize up. You will need the tub seal as well part # 5303279394. If this is OK then see if the bottom transmission bearing block is bad. If you remove the lower pulley and look up at the bearing block - it may show the bearings and race damage. It is all included in with the transmission assy. part # 134735700. Remove the motor belt and see if the motor now runs individually. Look at he Idler arm assy. part # 131862900 is damaged and needing replaced as well as the belt part # . Thank You.
Everything on the washer works properly except there is no agitation. The agitator is not stripped and center shaft of transmission does not turn. Is this a transmission or electrical problem ?
Answer Hi Dave. Lift the lid. Remove the top cover by un snapping the outer cover and lifting it off. Remove the agitator. Remove the inner tub. Just below it there is a trunnion part # 131545101 trunnion plate part # 137107000 and bolts part # 137539500. One side bolt will break and not align on the transmission grooved flat part intentionally there for this to be mounted to. You will need to lift up on the trunnion to hold it onto place there while realignment of new parts. Let us know how to assist further. Thank You.
