A Thousand THANK YOU's to all of you. Finally got the bearing out using a slide hammer. The old one was in pretty rough shape. Explains why the C-Clip was missing when I went to reassemble. Both pieces ground into oblivion. Probably part of the schmutz that Sensei pointed out above.

 

If I were doing this job for someone else, I would probably have changed the tranny gasket and drive coupler. But it wasn't too hard disassembling everything if I need to go back again.

 

I am attaching more pictures for your viewing pleasure.

 

I am on my third load of laundry. I am sooooooo agitated. HA! Get it?Attached File  elevation.jpeg   6.26KB   0 downloadsAttached File  plan.jpeg   3.23KB   0 downloads

Might consider replacing the basket drive, you're already in this deep. You could have the thing spinning as good, or better than new.

JMelvin... Keep fighting the good fight. This machine is worth fixing, no matter the cost! You would rather have a 10year old of this design than any brand spanking new top load.
