My Repair & Advice
Wife calls - it's broke. Home from work, immediately suspected clutch, V-belt or similar. Could hear the motor running. Founda video on youtube showing how to remove front panel. Looked. Sure enough, motor runs - nothing else turns. Figured the clutch was fragged. Order new clutch. When it arrives, pull the old one off. Mmm, that came apart rather easily - video said I'd have to drive the retaining clip off - but this one all but fell off. Put new clutch in and it slid up the motor shaft all teh way to the motor! That ain't right! Ah! the torque pin has fragged out and is now dust! Crap - no new torque pin. Wait, I've an old drill index... Find a drill that just fits, measure against slot in clutch driven spider - cut bit to fit. Assemble all and voila! It's all working. Re-assemble front panel and now I have clean clothes.
