Well, after looking at the prices of new washers.......
I ordered the hub kit part yesterday and overnighted it. Installed it and the washer works beatifully!! It was obvious when comparing the two, that the old white inner cog that slips over the spline shaft was seriously worn ( 7.5 years old). So, for $64, part and overnight shipping, I am once again doing laundry - Oh Joy!
Not sure what you mean by soaking with nappy cleaner??
Thanks for ya'lls help!
