I have and intermittent squeal during the agitation cycle only. I have replaced both the agitator and bearing but no success in stopping the squeal. Do you think it is the transmission or something else?
Answer Bruce, It's most likely something else, like the thrust bearing assembly 12002213 if the cam or bearing is worn or distorted, and out of tolerance, the brake rotor will remain partially engaged and make a squeak noise in the agitate cycle. Also check the belt 22003483 for a worn or burnt spot, and the motor pulley for the same as well.
My washer is making a loud noise during the wash and spin cycle. It sounds like a loud humming or very fast clicking noise. Is my lower bearing going out or something different, and if it is, would I need to buy a spanner wrench to replace it?
Answer Hello Sergio,
The pump 35-6780 requires no spanner wrench to replace. I believe a 5/16 inch socket and a 3/8 inch socket are needed in addition to the 5/16 for the drain hose clamp removals. Some of these may require a pair of pliers to remove the drain hoses from the pump, but I can't remember but a few that has the pinch type clamps on them. Most have the automotive style hose clamps on them which are much easier to work with. Be sure to unplug the unit before beginning!
