Will I need special tools for this part?
Answer Hello Scott. No, you will not need any special tools to replace this part.
The washer makes a rubbing noise during agitation, but only when there are clothes in the washer. Looks like the tub rotates 1 - 2" during agitation in short bursts causing the sounds. What parts would I need?
Answer Hello Tomme. Remove the belt from under the unit and turn each pulley by hand and see where the noise is coming from. Then replace the part that is making the noise. This is the only way to really determine what part is bad on the unit.
Unit washes fine. When unit goes into spin cycle it spins and then releases then spins and releases. It will not get up to full spin speed before releasing. It also tries to agitate at the same time and bunches up the clothes putting the drum off balance. Do I have a brake issue? Any ideas would be helpful.
Answer Jack, you've got one of two problems. First a worn out thrust bearing assembly 12002213 If any component of the assembly is worn out or distorted, it won't engage the brake or transmission properly and you will have a poor spin performance. The other possibility is the transmission itself. If the internal clutch spring or gear is worn or broken, the shaft won't engage and lock up and allow the tub to spin properly. It's most likely a worn out thrust bearing, and that's where you may want to start.
