The drive pulley moves 3 inches before ingaging drum, drum turns bearings seem to be ok. How to I lock the drum to get the nut off the pulley to inspect it.
Answer Hi Mike. You may need someone to hold the drum from the front in order to loosen the pulley nut. If the pulley is worn this bad, you need to replace it with pulley part # 8182650. Nut is part # W10283361. If the basket shaft is worn, the basket asy. is part # W10250573. Thank You.
Should the drive drum pulley have a little play in it even though the bolt holding it on is tight
Answer Hello Michael. No, the pulley should not have play in it. If it does, you will need to check the pulley for damage or the tub bearings could be bad. Hope this helps.
