I can sometimes get the drum to spin if I spin it backward or tip the drum to the side. Sometimes it will start to spin once or twice, but I have been able to get it to spin at high speed with an empty drum. Last time I washed cloth, the agitation worked and the water was drained out, but the close were soaking wet. I did not actually see it agitating after it started the the wash. I removed the top two drums (easily done), so now I have the last drum (plastic) still on so I cannot fill with water. Since the fill senser is just a pressure switch, I can varify if the agitation works if you will let me know what to short circuit on the switch. After that check I will let you know if agitation works. I have another question: if I get agitation, that it is apparent the break is the problem. do I have to replace the brake or can I just deactive and run the washer without a break?
Washer Transmission pulley & bearing repair kit. *Worn bearing causes slow or no spin, instructions included.
Manufacturer Number 12002213 you can order this @ http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Drive-Pulley/12002213/1042142?modelNumber=PAV2300AWW it comes with instructions.
1. I went to the web site you refered to above and it did not have instructions on installation. Will the installation instructions be provided with the part, the instruction sheet shown doesn't have much instructions?
2. Last night I did a test. I bypassed the fill switch sensor and turned on the washer. The agitation on all wash cycles worked properly, but made a lot of noise. I put it into spin cycle and it ran fine until I stopped it and started it again and again. After a couple of time the brake or someting kicked in and stopped the drum from spinning.
3. Is your remedy still the same?
