My washer was not spinning the water out, it would spin, stop, start over again. I replaced the thrust bearing, it seems a little better but now the tub wants to spin during the wash cycle. When I turn the pulley counterclock wise the brake doesnt release, and the shaft spins freely. Any more suggestions?
Answer Weasel, a new brake rotor 35-6714 may be a good idea, you also want to clean up the internal surface of the stator 35-6918 with emory cloth and wash out the assembly with rubbing alcohol. You also want to clean and lubricate the splines on the rotor, so it moves freely on the transmission case. You also want to order additional washers 35-2082 and 35-2132 to achieve the proper tolerances when you re install the thrust bearing kit ( you may need to add or swap) thick vs thin washers,etc. In order to remove the brake stator, you will need to purchase a brake removal tool 12002012 , or take one of the screws out of the stator assembly and take it to a hardware store and purchase two screws the same size and thread pattern, but 2 to 3 inches long, so you can remove the stator safely.
my washer dont move in washing cycle but in spin cycle it does.
Answer Alfredo, I don't think you will need a brake rotor, you may need a thrust bearing kit 12002213 or a new transmission 35-6615 . You may want to lean the washer against the wall or lay the washer on it's back, remove the belt and the thrust bearing pulley and washer assembly,and check it for excess wear and tear or the cam and pulley for deformation, You can carefully use a pair of pliers or vice grips and turn the shaft by hand, the clockwise direction should be the agitate mode, and the agitator should move back and forth, if the gears are OK. If tghe agitator does not move or the gears lock up and you can't turn the shaft you have a bad transmission. Good Luck and Thanks.
How do I change the snubber and brake roto? Loud squeel at the end of cycle. I changed the thrust bearing and checked the alignment marks and they only line up without any spacers, but doesn't spin. I put the thin spacer in and it works, but is beyond the alignment marks and still squeels at the end.
Answer Hello Tooloose. Here are the instructions from the manufacture. Hope this helps.
1. Disconnect the power to the unit.
2. Remove the drive pulley and cam components from the unit.
3. Use the brake tool TJ12002011 as follows:
Pull out and remove the "U" retainer from tool.
Slip the splined end of the drive shaft into hole located in the tool inner plunger.
Looking at the side of the tool, align slots on tool barrel and holes in tool plunger between splines and chamfered shoulder of shaft.
Slip "U" retainer through tools slots and holes capturing the drive shaft behind the chamfered shoulder.
Tighten tool nut to compress brake spring until transmission turns freely.
Remove 6 screws which secure the brake stator and snubber to the underside of the suspension housing.
Loosen tool nut until the brake spring reaches its free length.
Remove "U" retainer from tool and remove tool from drive shaft.
Remove brake components.
You can install the snubber at this time.
Reinstall in reverse order.
