My w/m will drain the water out but the tub doesn't spin. I did get it to spin one time during one of my many tests and there was a clunking noise when the spin cycle stopped. The agitator works fine and washes the clothes but I won't spin dry them. Drive block? Thanks, Geoff

Washer agitator will not move but the spin cycle still works. Is this the drive block or could it be something else?

My washer has stopped spinning and emits a very loud, constant sound when it reaches the spin cycle. The only way to get it to stop is to shut the washer off or manually move it out of the spin cycle. It appears to agitate and drain fine. My husband replaced the clutch but that didn't correct the issue. There were no rubber shavings under the washer so I don't think it is the motor coupling. Could it be the drive block?

With large or heavy loads, the washer does not remove much water from the clothes. The washer spins, but possibly not fast enough. If I cut the load in half and rerun the spin cycle, it works fine. Suggestions on what is not working properly?

This looks like a tough repair to me so I want to be as sure as possible that the drive block is the culprit. During the spin cycles, the washing machine makes a machine gun ratatat noise. The machine feels level and a level tells me that it is practically level. If I push down on the top of the machine in the right corner, the noise stops (only to resume if I let go of the machine.) If the drive block is to blame, does it make sense that holding down the machine in one corner would stop the noise? Thanks

I have a Kenmore model 70 that is banging around during the spin cycle. I replaced the 3 suspension springs and the counterweight spring but it did not solve the problem. Researching, I read it could be the drive block, the snubber pads could be worn, and am wondering what you would suggest. Thanks!

I have a Kenmore model 70 made by Whirlpool, direct drive that just started banging around during the spin cycle. I replaced the springs but that didn't help. Any suggestions?

HI. So, my washer stopped spinning during the spin cycle. It was making a loud buzzing so I assumed problem with the motor or transmission. I took both of the unit and ran the motor by itself...motor spins. After a little research, pinned it on the trans. I replaced the trans. No buzzing now, but still no turning. The new trans came with a new clutch assembly so initially I'm not thinking it's the clutch but it didn't come with a new brake cam driver so maybe that's it but the existing one doesn't look broken either. When I run the new motor and trans together outside of the unit, the drive shaft and the clutch both spin. However, I did note that with just a simple touch of my finger to the clutch, I can stop it (shouldn't the motor be able to handle a much heavier load?) I also can spin the drum manually with the brake cam driver. I'm thinking of getting a new clutch kit to replace the brake cam driver. I would hate to have someone come out when I've already pretty much taken the whole thing apart myself. I would also hate to keep throwing money at parts that I can't return. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have an "older" Whirlpool washing machine at a rental property and was told by the tenants, that the machine did not spin during the final cycle and that their clothes were left soaking wet. After reviewing your site and several of the videos, I went ahead and replaced the motor coupling but with no success. After reading more posts from your site and again reviewing the videos, I went ahead and replaced the clutch - still no luck. In for a penny / in for a pound, so I also replaced the lid switch - but it still doesn't spin in the final cycle. I had planned on trying one last thing - replacing the drive block but after reading other posts about older machines, I've found that many possible options may still be the cause. The machine is likely in the 20-25 year-old range and while I'd normally just swap such an item out, since the motor and transmission look good(?) and since I've already replaced several parts, I'm not quite ready to give-up. Plus, the tenants really love the way that the machine washes. Is the drive block a likely cause for the problems or is the real issue, something more serious like the transmission or other? Any help would be appreciated.
