Question about Washing Machines
My washer works fine up until the spin and drain cycle. It fills with water then agitates great. However, when it goes into the spin cycle the tub fails to turn fast and smooth like it should. Instead, it makes a real loud jerky/rubbing/squeaking sound. When I depress the lid switch to watch, the tub it is turning less than 1 turn per 4 or 5 seconds. The pump is working because it drains the water out of the tub as it should. Do you have any suggestions for what part to replace?
P.S. Based on my wifes description of the problem, I went out and bought a coupling and installed it. Based on all the black rubber the old one was about to go. But of course, this didn't fix the problem.
It seems that a gearbox basket drive is failing
compared to a coupling,
no more difficult to replace, but a huge $35 instead of $15
I use the instructions here, when I do this job
