Hello, again.

 

Today my washing machine is starting to act up.  It appears that it spins too slow.  If I move it back and forth by hand it feels tight but after a couple of back and forth turns, it frees up a bit, but not for long.  I had reports of a burning type smell, but I did not smell this myself.

 

My conclusion is that the clutch is shot and binding.  What I'm looking for is a confirmation that this is the likely culprit for this type of problem.

 

Thanks in advance.

This makes good sense and explains the free-sometimes, sometimes-not phenomenom.

I'll check this in the morning.

 

Thanks,

Nothing found in between the tubs but a heavy build up of lint type debris between the vertical center sections of both tubs.   Removal may or may not help, the spin clutch seems OK, I can see it working and there is still material on the clutch. 

 

Since I didn't actually see this problem happen, burning smell and all, I'm thinking that the tub was overloaded and just took a long time to spin up to speed.

 

thanks,

Gearcase oil on the clutch will also cause a slow spin.  Look for a gearcase oil leak.
