Thanks for the advice.  I guess you can't win them all.  The upside is that I now know how to take apart a front loader and get to the different parts.

I actually looked at the machine today.  No leaks.  Noises were a thump and squeal as you turn.  I completely took apart the machine even taking apart the front and back of the tub.  I hit a stand still when trying to separate the back from the basket.  I tried a wood block and a rubber mallet and the thing did not budge at all.  I ended up wailing on it as hard as I could and got it to move some but I cannot get the shaft through so I can examine the spider to see if it is bad or not.  I was able to notice an obvious wobble as I turned it and etches in the tub where the screws are hitting the tub wall.  I'm pretty sure its' the spider but not 100% til I can see it.  I would hate to toss it after all that work if it is just the bearings.  Any tips on getting the last part of the shaft through.  I had to hit it so hard that I believe the edges of the shaft have miss-shapen some.  Thanks

Update:  Just replaced the mode shifter.  It was a piece of cake & my washing machine is fixed.  My wife is very happy! Thanks so much for the expert advice!

Thanks, I'm ordering the part and am going to give a try.  I'll let you know how it turns out.  By the way, I love this website & forum.  Great information & help for a reasonable fee.

When it fails, the clothes are sopping wet and cover the bottom of the tub.  When it works, you can see the bottom of the tub and clothes make a ring showing that it spun and they are wrung out correctly.
