Yeah, I know it's old. But they're not making machines like this one anymore and it matches my dryer so I am EXTREMELY resistant to replacing it.
Anyway, it just developed a problem: When the spin cycle starts, it spins for a few seconds and stops.
Things I have already done:
1.) Replaced both belts and thoroughly cleaned all pulleys. (Belts were at LEAST 10 years old)
2.) Replaced timer with used timer from last time I worked on it. (New timer did not fix last issue)
3.) Checked tub and all hoses for obstructions.
4.) Replaced motor carriage springs and rollers.
The transmission turns freely by hand in both directions, and there is no water or oil leakage beneath it. The pump also turns freely by hand. There appears to be some damage to the top vanes on the pump impeller, but I fail to see how this could cause this problem.
I am at a loss and would very much appreciate any input you might have.
Also, I forgot to mention...It agitates correctly and pumps out properly with the transmission drive belt removed.
