Hi,after filling up with water my machine will not go into any cycle, all it does is make a humming sound (and burning smell) then it clicks off after a few seconds. I checked underneath and the belts and pulleys seem ok, I cannot turn the belt. If I put some muscle into it I can turn the tub, it will spin freely if I go slow but once I spin faster it stops. Thank you for your time

Washer run as normal but does not spin cycle. So ends up with a tub full of water and thats it. Center still spins as needed when washing but the outside tub part wont. I turned washer over and the thrust bearing was broken. Still mounted but deff could be causing this. Any other ways to tell? Or any ways to know anything else needs to be replaced.

Does not spin. With belt off, when I turn the drive pulley clockwise, I get agitator movement. When turned counterclockwise, it is harder to turn, and tub does not spin. I took pulley off and all the washers and bearings looked good, so I lubricated and reassembled.

Top load washer makes incredibly loud and annoying whining sound during cycle. machine works fine otherwise(spins, rinses, etc..) I removed the belt and ran motor, and it made no annoying noise. Sounds like the thrust bearing is whats wrong.

Thrust bearing replaced but not enough CCW resistance on drive shaft to spin cam and lift brake off. Quick history - 11.5 years old. Had a small unbalanced load in spin cycle. My son spread out the few items and started again - when I found them they were still wet. In rinse cycle, agitation is okay (no clothes, just 1/2 full of water), In spin cycle, it pumps out water but does not spin and agitator still moves back and forth. No particular strange noises or grinding noted. Inspection of old thrust bearing found almost no resistance in CCW rotation of pulley - drive shaft simply spins CCW - and thus cam does not lift up and disengage brake. New Replacement of thrust bearing with 0.064 thick washer (not easily installed!) finds the same operation. Very little resistance in CCW rotation - not enough to spin the cam and move the arrow between the two marks. If I hold the drive shaft with pliers and rotate the pulley CCW, the brake releases just past the first mark and the tub easily spins by hand. And rotating the drive shaft back to the first mark re-engages the brake. Even with the drift shaft initially held with pliers and the cam turned past the second mark to the hard stop the transmission never "locks up" and turning the pulley rapidly by hand CCW begins to only slowly rotate the drum - really just from the friction of the thrust bearing I suppose - certainly not enough for an actual load of clothes. I am wondering if the transmission is really the trouble or is there some other "clutch" mechanism outside the transmission. Should the drive shaft so easily rotate CCW and run the agitator or should it have a LOT of resistance so that as the pulley just starts to rotate CCW the cam lifts the brake and releases and the drive shaft is "locked" and thus starts the transmission and drum spinning? Thanks for any suggestions/more information. Replacing the transmission might be more than I'm up for!
