My washer made a loud sound and it wouldn't spin and now it doesn't do anything I need help.
You will want to check the lid switch for continuity with the lid closed. If there is no continuity then you would need to replace the switch. Also check the motor coupling to make sure that it is not broken.
Will this transmission work with my washer?
Answer Ron, according to your model number the transmission 3360629 is the correct replacement and will work on your unit. Thanks!
Just above the transmission on the tub is like a wide rubber band on mine this is also broke is this some thing I need and if so how does it go on ?
The part that it sounds like you are referring to would be the centerpost gasket 383727 on the tub assembly which is a necessary part to help keep unit from leaking.
We have a washer I need to either fix or replace. During the spin cycle, there is a really bad repetitive sound, that doubles in speed when switched from "slow" to "fast". Also, it looks like the spindle that sticks up to the drive block is only advancing a little and then stopping, then advancing a little then stopping... while basket moves only a little.. rather than the spindle etc actually spinning.
Here is a link to two short videos of this. "part 1" is the second video, "part 2 is the first one on the page". they are each < 1 min long.
I have leaned toward it being transmission, though perhaps something w/ the bottom of the drive tube (worn plastic part some on it"), or clutch, or possibly electronic?
Do you recognize this sound, these symptoms? If you do, that would be very helpful, as I need to either fix or replace it quickly for our family.
Thanks very much.
Answer Hello Robert_MC,
The most likely cause of the unit making this type of noise and little movement during spin is would be the clutch or brake. You will want to visually inspect the brake and clutch for wear or damage.
