Posted 27 August 2009 - 12:24 PM

I've managed to remove the agitator and inner drum of my Admiral top-loading washing machine, model LNC6750A71.  

Please check out the photo.  I have the following questions:

1) Do I need to remove the outer drum to get to the transmission and clutch?   If so, what tool do I need?  My socket wrench doesn't fit under the big metal ring (the mount for the inner drum?), and my wrench doesn't fit between the fins to the left and right of the nuts.

2) Am I on the right track to hunt down what's causing my washing machine to spin poorly / slowly?

3) The transmission/clutch for this model is all one piece.  It's all one $300 piece.   Have I entered the land of the "may as well get a new washer"?


Thanks!

- Kendra

You will also need the tub seal and bearing kit, figure $80-$100 more in cost. Also, check the tub support, aka milkstool, for cracks and breaks.

I would junk it.

i would try replacing the belt first if you haven't already, if that doesn't take care of it, it could be the thrust bearing assm. basically its the drive pulley assm as well as some washers and a bearing. its not to bad to replace it.

Take a gander at the link below.  It addresses no spins on a MAV unit which is the same drive system.  One quick check will tell you if it is the trans or brake not releasing.

Slow spins are usually not the trans, belts as mentioned prior, motor pivot plate not allowing the motor to snap back (Dry or gummed up), etc. are the usual culprits.

I checked the belt - no glazing, not shiny, no cracks.   Can it have other damage that wouldn't be visible, or can I assume it's OK?

Does silicone vs. bearing grease matter for lubing the motor pivot?   That doesn't look damaged, but it's definitely stiff and hasn't ever been lubed before.


Thanks!

the belt is the easiest thing to replace and inexpensive. if the washer has any age on it, it's just a good maintenance item to replace.

silicone is normally more of an adhesive or sealant, i would stay away from that. Vaseline is something you could use that you might have around the house.

The thrust bearing mentioned in your second post is located under the machine, and is part of the large centre plastic pulley, if you wish to remove the trans, the milstool and springs need to be removed and the tub flipped over to remove, but first you need to remove the nut from the top, at the bottom of the innertub. Please refer to the tests in the link that TTH provided in a previous post prior to making any "parts replacing" decisions.
