Have a used washer, model # above. Had a loud, high pitched squeeling noice and burnt rubber smell a few days ago. I figure belt is probably toasted. Guy at local parts house says these models are know for having the transmissions lock up. I can spin the basket by hand.
Ran a small, test load and washer seems to agitate, and pumps water out, but will not spin. If it was my belt that broke, would this thing still agitate?? I'm thinking not, but am unsure as to what my symptoms might point to.
I am familiar with Whirlpool direct drive washers, and could change the couplet in one of those in my sleep, but this is my first belt drive.
