Last Night I took the machine apart to find clutch/brake assy ok gearbox was also ok then I noticed shaft coupling was different than new part I had in stock, new part made totally of nylon, old part fitted to machine has steel insert built into nylon. this was not fully located onto motor shaft and the first 1/4" of motor shaft had been stripped back to round ( no flat faces) also inside the steel lined bore of the nylon coupling had been worn to round.I replaced with new coupling of nylon and ensured both nylon parts fully pushed home onto motor shaft and gearbox shaft with any freeplay / gap being allowed in the rubber drive link. This has worked for now but expect trouble in future with worn motor shaft.

Thanks for using FixYa. For
servicing the clutch you’ll need to first remove the gear case. The gear case
can be removed by first removing the outer cabinet. After removing the cabinet,
remove the pump and motor assembly. Now carefully lay down the washer on its
back and remove the 3 bolts securing the gear case. Now pull the gear case
straight out from the tube support assembly. Now, compress the clutch spring
with a pair of pliers and lift the lining from the clutch hub. To remove entire
clutch assembly begin by removing the spin tube thrust washer up & off the
agitator and then remove the tube support ring. Remove the retainer ring and
lift the clutch hub up and off spin pinion.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
