Does anyone know how I can get my hands on a service manual for the transmission on my Kenmore washer? I have the manual for the whole washer, but they consider the transmission seperately.

Thanks for all your help.

Rick

I don't know of a manual for the transmission.  What do you need to do?  Willie is the resident expert on the mechanical guts of these things, he might help you if you talk reeeal sweet-like to him.

Here are the 2 messages that I posted on the "old system".



Kemore washer #110.28803890
 
I opened the transmission on my washer while trying to find a noise that the machine was making. I took the top spin gear off. There was a piece that was just laying on the neutral assembly. I found my problem and when reinstalling, I put the piece back to the position that I thought it needed to be. Put washer back together and it was spinning without anything in it. When clothes were added, it would not spin. Is there a certain way that the neutral assembly is put back together?
 
Thanks for your help
 
 
My problem was the drive coupling. I should have checked that first. All the parts look to be whole by looking at the diagram from Kenmore. what and where is the basket drive block? I could not find a service manual for the transmission. I have the service manual for the washer itself, but they consider the transmission a separate entity. If it is not the basket drive block, do you know where I can get a  service manual for the transmission?
 
Thanks for all your help.

Don't know where you would find a book on just the transmission..... except from Whirlpool tech support, but you would have to be an authorized Whirlpool service company.

As far as putting it all back together, I believe the neutral drain parts are marked "Top" on the centrifical weight and the the drive lug, I believe is also marked "Top" for the side that goes up.

The ratchet mechinism must have the flat spring on the correct location so as the end will be held agains the center toothed ring on the underside of the main spin gear.

The center toothed ring on the under side of the main spin gear, (if you took it off also), needs to be installed so as the teeth that stick out are on the bottom riding on the plate that contains all the neutral drain components.

I have the very same problem. I have it the way I think you described it. Every thing works except for spin. Does anyone have a picture of how this is supposed to be set up? I have one stick of dynamite left. I think I know what I'm going to do with it.

Yep, agitates fine. My problem was the coupler. But stupid me didnt see anything wrong with it at first. It wasn't untill after I pulled the tranny apart and saw nothing there that I looked at the coupler better. One piece of the neutral drain fell out when I took the spin gear off. Had to guess how it went back on. It would spin for one cycle but after that nothing. I found this thread and took it back apart to move the spring. Still no help. It has to be the spring position or the ring position that I'm getting wrong. It must have to be timed or something.

Hello,
I made the same mistake on my machine just the other day.
Didn't realize it was a transmission,just thought it was a gear box.
When I popped it open fluid spilled out onto the bench:P
Then I took the motor off and "found" the coupling
:shock:
The motor is reversable.If I remember right,when it turns clockwise the tub spins,counter clockwise the cam works the agitator.or visa-versa.
The next time you mess with it you can test it by lightly "clamping" a pair of vise grips to the shaft and turn it by hand both ways to make sure it works before you reinstall it.
Bill McK.

You're right about the bidiretional motor. I can get it to work by hand while I have it out. But when I put it back together it will work fine for one cycle. after that I have to pull it apart agian to wash another load.
