When removing the belt from the center pulley, the unit spins to the left as the brake disengages but will not spin to the right because the brakes does engage the stator. So the brake is working. When spinning the pulley to the right, should the entire tub rotate? I have seen posts that say no and some that say yes
When the entire tub assembly was taken out and the brake was taken off, the transmission unit spins left to right freely...
Spinning the pulley to the left (counterclockwise) rotates the tub as the brake disengages....this is the spin cycle.
Spinning the pulley to the right (clockwise) engages the brake and does not allow the tub to spin, so only the agitator should be spinning because this is the Agitation cycle
How do you confirm it is the transmission. Is there a test I can perform to validate your comment...
Take the brake off and see if it spins...which is does....
Again,...Is there a test I can perform to the transmission that tells me...can I isoloate the unit...and verify...dont really want to shell out 300 for a transmission and then find it is not that
Not sure what the meaning of "... I would replace this unit before sinking any money into it at all..."
What unit? The transmission? The brake? Can you clarify specifics?
What is the word "it" referring to?
If the transmission is 250 and a new unit is 500 why would I replace a transmission at 50% the cost of a new unit...
Still just trying to understand how to test the transmission to make 100% sure it is the problem...how can I test the transmission?
