Will not agitate.
If the unit does not agitate yet spins then the issue would most likely be caused by a bad transmission or thrust bearing. If the unit is not agitating or spinning then the issue would most likely be the lid switch.
The washer is still working but a brown liquid (oil?) is leaking out the bottom. Not sure what part needs to be replaced. Thx
You will want to check to see if you can determine where the leak is coming from. The issue could be a leak around the tub bearings which could cause the brown liquid. It could also be that the transmission is leaking and would need to be replaced.
After spin and rinse or after the agitation cycle the tubs stops violently, too quick, immediate. Is this the brake assembly or thrust bearing or both?
If the unit is making a screeching type noise at the end of the cycle then the issue would be the brake assembly. You would want to replace the brake and stator on the unit. The tub is designed to stop rapidly but should not make the screeching noise.
My washer will pump out the water but does not spin. I looked underneath the machine and if I turn the pulley one way the agitator does turn but when I turn the pully the opposite direction it turns very easily but nothing happens. the agitator does not move nor does the tub. Could it be the transmission pulley and bearings?
The thrust bearing sounds like it could be worn out. The agitator will not spin but the whole tub should spin when turning the thrust bearing counter clockwise. If this is not happening and the thrust bearing is not pushing the brake assembly up then the issue will be a bad thrust bearing and in some cases could be a bad transmission but the thrust bearing is normally the first option.
