Yeah, good idea, wouldn't be too terribly difficult :) I'll give it a try and let you know how that goes.

Sorry about the sound, not sure what happened there :confused:. Here is a video that has the same sound that hers makes, maybe that will help. I'll try to research where the sound went on my vids.

Is there a way to test motor and motor switch to try determine with some assurance which one (if either) is bad?

 

I don't think there is any binding, but the tub didn't want to turn when it was set to spin and was just making the humming noise so something was keeping the tub stationary and not letting it turn when I tried (tranny?).

 

I don't think the motor was making any other strange noises, just the hum/buzz sound from the above video.

 

I don't know when I'll get over to my friend's house again, her husband was moved back into ICU and may be facing surgery :sad: so her life is understandably crazy right now. I don't want to inconvenience her so we'll just have to see. Hopefully I can get over there in the next week or so.

 

Thanks for your input so far!

Doc! I am once again filled with hope, I did indeed have that part upside down which has been remedied. Now I just have to figure out how to clean the transmission oil from the edges of the transmission before sealing it back up. Any tips in that department? I was going to turn in early tonight, but now I just can't wait to see if this does the trick (Dear washing machine, pretty please with a cherry on top?). I'll let you know.

 

Thank you SO much!

Thanks for your response! So, it's not a problem that I can hold the plastic gear from turning? Also, when the transmission was still together I tested it by turning the drive coupler on its side to see if it would cause the clutch to turn, which it didn't. Maybe that's not a real test, I don't know, but I was thinking that the clutch should do something when I turned the coupler.

 

I thought I waited enough time for it to go into spin last time, but maybe not. I guess I'll put it all back together and try it again if you can't think of anything else I should do first.
