Upper Clamp Nut #13 - Don't spend more than 5 minutes trying to take it off - just cut it off with a cold chisel or grinder or You may damage the upper Tranny post threads if it is stuck on.
Final Answer to my issue: Agitator shaft was frozen to #12 Gear Case assembly ?post #4 Tranny Diagram
I have a 25 year old SE1000 Maytag Washer + Dryer Stack.
Several parts have been replaced. Current Problem:
** Saturday: The little lady packed the washer with heavy stuff like two sets of flannel sheets, a small quilt type blanket, and other stuff making a very full load
** Washer will not agitate
** It will spin and drain
** With the front off and in the agitate cycle, I can see the pulley move a bit, but no more
** The belts will squeal after a minute or so
** The pulley is relatively easy to turn in the spin "direction"
** But much stiffer in the agitate direction
** I do not think the belts have been replaced in ten or more years
Saturday: I played with it for a an hour or so - back and forth to this website looking for fixit hints
and was able to get a couple of loads done with no issues
Monday: the little lady loaded it up and it will not agitate
Thanks in advance for your help.
