I have a Kenmore 417.98702890 stack unit that is acting up.  The tub does not move counter to the agitator any more.  As a result, water sloshes over the side when washing a full load.  I believe it is a belt issue as the clothes do not seem to spin out as well as they did.  The machine is nearly 12 years old.  It cycles, fills, and empties properly.  The tub spins freely in both directions (by hand) when the machine is off.  It didn't do that before.  Since there is no "brake" in the assembly, i can only assume that the belt is loose since that is the only thing that would inhibit manual tub rotation in the "wrong" direction.  Am I crazy, thinking wishfully, or has the meager experience I DO have put me on the right track?

Not maybe a bad transmission,  IT IS Definitely a bad transmission.

 

The one way bearing on the bottom of the transmission has failed which is a somewhat common occurrence on these.

 

Only way to fix it is to replace the complete transmission since they don't sale individual parts for these anymore.

 

If you or someone else does a little research and can find an old parts break down for one of these and come up with the part number for the bottom transmission housing and do a search on E-bay you may find the lower transmission housing with the one way bearing for under $30.00, I just happen to have seen one a few days ago when I was going thru all of a sellers listing, (I don't remember who it was though).
