Okay, I've replaced my faulty timer which I was sure was bad. Now my problem is it won't do anything but fill with water.

After that the motor just hums. I tested the motor by taking it off the machine and running it. It ran fine. The shaft was spinning without a problem.

I tried spinning the shaft on the transmission and I can spin it all day counterclockwise but it will only spin a lttle clockwise until it stops.

The clutch doesn't spin when I mounted the motor and put it on spin cycle. The motor just hums.

What is going on here?

Looks like a bad transmission since it will not turn freely both ways...

Thanks for the reply Pegi.

Is there a way to test the transmission or have I already done everything?

Should turn freely both ways, it is locking up.....not sure if it can be fixed or not, we just replace them, others may know of repairing these however...

Do I have to take the drive block off to get the transmission off?

How do I know if clutch and brake assembly are still good?

I want to check everything if I'm going to take this all apart.

Thanks

To replace just the tranny have to remove the agitator and the pump/motor then the three bolts that hold the tranny...to remove the clutch/spin tube then have to remove the drive block...

I have the transmission out now and have some interesting findings.

I now can spin the shaft both clockwise and counterclockwise on the ranny freely. By watching the shaft of the tranny I now see the motor spins clockwise to agitate and counterclockwise to spin cycle. The cluth only engages in the spin cycle and doen't spin during the agitate.

Does this sound like my transmission is still good?

Now I can see what I think is the brake assembly?

The white plastic piece seems sloppy (part 15 driver brake cam) is this normal? Could my brakes be binding up the motor and transmission?

Here are some pictures of what I am looking at in hopes of someone guiding me to fixing this un-washing machine.

It seems the brake shoes are engaged and I can't budge them for the life of me.

The clutch was clean coming out so no transmission leak.

Misc. parts from brake and clutch. The brake cam has two nubs which are broken off that fit into the metal piece holes. I can't believe that this was the problem, but I will be getting a new one.

Someone has to be able to see something. I will post more pix if necessary.

The break release cam moves the break shoe rollers far enough to release the break shoes from the tub housing. These rollers can wear out. If the shoes are dragging=new break shoe time.

Reassemble the yellow plastic part and the rest of the cam. Then try turning it using the yellow plastic part. It should relase the brakes and allow the basket to turn.

 This is a long shot, but have you checked inside the basket for a screw or something else that would keep it from turning? I've seen nails, screws, even an underwire from a bra stop them.

I have faulty electrical somewhere!!

I took the motor and tranny to a repair shop to have it tested and guess what--they work fine. I saw it with my own eyes.

I bring it home and hooked it up to my harness and the stupid thing doesn't work. There has to be something messed up with the wiring. I have a brand new timer already so I know that's good.

I need help figuring out what to test. I tested all the wires in the motor harness for continuity in the timer harness and they all checked out. By continuity I mean I used the rk1 scale on my ohm meter.

What's next? I have taken a picture of my wiring schematic. Someone please help!!

Ahhhh. The sweet sound of a running washing machine. I have finally fixed it. It turns out after all my observations, I didn't have my timer screwed in far enough to ground the switch on the metal plate. Wow it's amazing how something so simple can be overlooked, but it's fixed and I'm going to bed.

Thanks to everyone who helped me out hopefully I can return the favor someday.:party:
