Unit washes fine. When unit goes into spin cycle it spins and then releases then spins and releases. It will not get up to full spin speed before releasing. It also tries to agitate at the same time and bunches up the clothes putting the drum off balance. Do I have a brake issue? Any ideas would be helpful.
Answer Jack, you've got one of two problems. First a worn out thrust bearing assembly 12002213 If any component of the assembly is worn out or distorted, it won't engage the brake or transmission properly and you will have a poor spin performance. The other possibility is the transmission itself. If the internal clutch spring or gear is worn or broken, the shaft won't engage and lock up and allow the tub to spin properly. It's most likely a worn out thrust bearing, and that's where you may want to start.
Will tub seal kit part no. W10219156 repair the loud jet like noise on my MAV4758AWW? Will it come with instructions?
Answer Hello Chris. Yes, if the bearing is bad, you will need to order and replace the tub seal W10219156 on the unit. The part does come with an instruction sheet.
