Hi, my name is ***** ***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible.
How does the belt look?
If you can see the washer part sliding around you need a new wheel bracket. very common issue on these. I can provide part numbers as soon as I return to the shop if needed, or a link to a site where you can see pics and part numbers.
Check out this link and once you pull it apart you can decide which parts you are needing. Most all of these parts are pretty cheap to replace so I would go ahead and rebuild it all so no issues in the near future.
Give me a moment to look this up. Most likely there is no video of replacement.
#14 is the spring that causes the keyway to come out on the gear and engage the wheels. Many times you can clean these off and hole out with brake cleaner or replace.
This would not cause the transmission to be loose, but could cause the wheels not to engage at all times.
