The tub will not spin. It smelled hot but the belts look Okay.
Answer Hello John,
This sounds like the spin bearing 6-2040130 and outer tub seal 6-2095720 have failed.
My washer won't spin in the spin cycle. The washer is definitely trying to spin. The spin drum seems almost frozen and hard to spin by hand. I can smell the belt smoking as the washer tries to spin. The wash cycle and drain pump seem to work fine. What is the culprit part & is it time to replace other parts for maintenance since I'm there?
Answer Harold, You'll need to raise the top panel of the washer, remove the tub cover and check to make sure there's no small articles stuck between the tubs. If the tubs are clear, you most likely have a seized tub bearing 6-2040130. Besides the bearing assembly, you'll need a set of belts 12112425 a tub seal kit 6-2095720 and a spanner wrench TJ90TB123A to perform the repair. You'll also want to order some silicone grease 204999 to lubricate the rollers on the motor carriage and TJ93240 turbine oil lubricant to lube the new bearing and race. This isn't that difficult a repair, just awkward due to the size of the parts when you remove the tub.
