No spinning on large loads

15 posts in this topic

My washer won't spin with large loads.  I just did a small load, all seems ok.  Where do I go from here?

Something is causing this, see what is happening-slipping with the front off, still suspect a bad belt, but could have a tranny going bad?

Just tried the large load w/ front off.  Starts to spin very, very slow and then just stops.  It sounds like it's trying to go,  just won't.

The belt is not slipping.  The tranny and belt are turning together slowly then nothing.

Sure sounds like a bad tranny then, but do not see how the motor could still be running and the belt still going and the tranny not truning without the belt slipping on something. Unless the motor is turning and the clutch is not????
