Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue so do not rate me until we are done thanks.
If you remove the belts does the large center pulley turn freely by hand in both directions?
Yes this is common the upper bearing on the transmission is dry and seizing, the only option is to rebuild the transmission or flip the machine upside down for 4-6 hours to allow the transmission fluid to saturate the bearing then rotate the pulley until it is free. It works nearly every time, it is just awkward to do.
We are on the honor system for our time, all I ask is please rate my service using the star rating link on your page before you leave.
