I got the spanner nut off and the basket seems stuck - glued in by years of soap residue is my guess. Any advice?
Answer Hello Mike,
Most of the time the tub can be released by bumping the very top of the outer edge of the spin basket with your hand in one direction then the other. This gives the best leverage possible and will normally break it free.
I have replaced connecting rack which was broke, in time according to timing marks on parts,replaced direct drive coupling,and replaced clutch kit. the machine runs through its regular cycle but will not spin when it is required to. One cycle went through wash/spin but did not spin in the rinse/spin cycle or the spin cycle? please help!
Answer William, We're not familiar with the term " connecting rack" and aren't clear what or where it's located and does. Try this, remove the pump and motor leave half the drive coupler attached to the gearcase input shaft. Turn the coupler counter clockwise and the washer should agitate and be relatively easy to turn. Turn the coupler counter clockwise, after a revolution or two the coupler will be harder to turn, the clutch should engage and the brake release and the tub and drive tube should start to rotate. If the tub doesn't spin, drop the gearcase and check the drive tube and brake shoes. If all's OK replace the gearcase.
