  If it's the agitate gear spring that is broken or weak, the part including the seal is still available as part number 285672. I do notice that the white T-bearing in the video that goes back and forth with the agitator shaft does not always travel in the full arc that it should which indicates that the agitate gear may be slipping which can definitely be caused by a broken or weak spring. Time to open up the transmission assuming you can get it out. On these old washers, a ridge can form on the agitator shaft above the bearings in the basket drive making it very difficult to pull it past those bearings.

You are correct the "white T-bearing" does not travel in full arc.....wow a ridge huh? I dont wanna jack up any parts since they are scarce.... well not gonna learn how this washer works unless I GAT (get after it). Lots on my plate this week don't see myself working on it this week....Maybe this weekend...thx for the help

ok despite how clean this washer looks there is a noise coming from the tranny....and I haven't even leak tested yet!

I have located a complete used tranny for $225....yea! WOW!!

Is this washer worth getting into that much???

 

Maybe one of you fellas can tell me what is noise could be....thx!

 

Maybe low on fluid? What type of oil/fluid is used in the gearcase?

 

Check out the vid......

  Lay washer on it's front for access. The clutch shaft is at the front of the transmission so you can't get to it from the rear access panel. You can plug the transmission vent hole right behind the rear yoke support shaft to prevent oil leakage.

Thanks Eric!
