Thanks for this very interesting forum!!

I have a KitchenAidWhirpoolKenmore washer, with direct drive. It has exactly 5 years and 28 days of service.

At the end of the spin cycle (or opening the lid) the basket simply doesn't brake anymore and makes some noise. I did some research on this forum and decided to go after the clutch assembly.

I removed the motor and brakets, removed the three bolts holding the transmission but it won't come off. It seem stuck in there (by pulling on it hard, it only slips out 1/2" or so). Should the transmission slips off easily??

Do you think I am on the right track?

Thanks

Erm....you did remember to take the agitator off, didn't you? Quite apart from that, this may be yet another drive block issue. Bolt your tranny back into place, and take the agitator off. Posted Image

 

Does it look exactly like this?

No I did not remove the agitator... I am having the same problem as this guy, I think..

When they say drop the tranny, I didn't think I had to remove the agitator.
