Washer tries and fails repeatedly to enter final spin

Depending on the model number, if a shock has broken the tub might have a broken inner spin basket support broken also. That can throw the spin basket off balance not allowing it to get up to high speed spin.

Hi i own Honda fire blade cbr 900 rrt 1996. And have fitted a complete new ebc clutch and inner clutch basket now theirs a loud knocking coming from tthe clutch at tickover that goes when i pull the...

something is not fitted right inside or the new plates don't match the original outer or inner basket. This would cause the plates to "backlash" inside the clutch, especially at idling.
if that's not the case, you might have not tighten hard enough the main shaft nut and it came loose. You need a special tool to hold properly the inner drum.

Washer spins loudly and seems to free wheel and other times does not drain properly

Check the motor to transmission coupling, probably broken.
Also check the inner basket drive block. The drive block is attached to the top of the spin tube-basket drive assembly under the inner basket. The spanner nut is under the agitator, locking the basket to the spin tube. The drive block has two slots that lock onto the two ears of the spin tube. Replace the damaged drive block, and/or replace the basket drive/brake assembly.

As previous incomplete query. In assebling a basket case B40 it appears that the inner cable of the clutch cable is approx 65mm to long..I acquired a new cable which was exactlt thje same length. The inner...

I am not familiar with your model. However what I can think of that would cause the symptom you have with a basket case assembly: Improper clutch assembly( pressure plate not engaged properly with inner clutch hub; needs to be rotated 1 or more teeth so as to seat fully on plates), improper plate stacking or # of plates. Incorrect location of clutch cable mounting bracket. If clutch arm is of the splined type, incorrect placement on the splined release shaft. hope something helps

During the spin cycle it sounds like the drum is about to come out of the machine and there are little grey plastic pieces in the clothing.

Sound like the basket has broken away from the spinning support coming of the back of inner drum, Gray plastic is the front ring the inner tub is now rubbing on. This has been making noise for a while. Phil 1-800-559-1411 any help I can give you.

Hi, I've an XR600 all works fine from cold but as the engine warms up the clutch starts dragging (will not completrely dissengage). It's not 'notchy' seems to me that the clutch plates...

Yes the plates do change dimension as it warms up, which will change the feel and lever adjustment. I would inspect the outer basket and inner drive hub for wear. Over time the steel plates will wear notches in the inner hub, and the friction plates will notch the basket as well, and when this occurs the clutch plates can't move freely and can't engage properly. Good luck!

The washer clunks during spin cycle. I removed the back and found some pieces of plastic from the outer drum enclosure. Other than that, everything seemed to be intact. The "shocks" or feet were not broken...

If the inner basket has broken off on one of the three braces on the back side where it is welded to the main spindle shaft that goes through the outer shell and bearing, you will need to replace the spindle and probably the inner basket. Some come together, some can be bought seperately and bolted. Not sure which yours is. Most people go out and replace unit rather than attempt ths repair because of cost if done by a appliance business. It is a complete tear down, and part or parts are expensive.

If you grab the inner basket and try to move it side to side, it should be solid.. The whole tub assembly can move while your doing this, but the inner basket should be solid in the back bearing
Just one idea..

Shaft coming out of transmission that clutch basket slide this suppose to free wheel while transmission is in gear...please help this is on a big dog k-9 motorcycle..6 speed baker transmission

Without clutch plates installed. The clutch basket inner is directly connected to the tranny input shaft- if you turn the inner clutch basket while in gear it should drive the rear wheel. The outer basket should spin freely regardless of gear selection and have no affect on the tranny.
The input shaft of the tranny itself ( the shaft the clutch basket slides on) should not free wheel when in gear.

Not spinning properly

You will need to replace the inner basket and front outer tub assembly. Likely, the spider on the inner basket (drum bracket) has broken which is causing it to be loose and rubbing on the inside of the outer tub. This can be verified by checking for excessive play of the inner basket (hold the front of the inner basket and check for play by moving it up and down).
It's not a cheap repair unfortunately. Be sure to always use a small amount (2 tablespoons for a full load) of HE (high efficiency) detergent to prevent future build up which could cause corrosion of the tub spider.

one of the welds on your inner stainless steal tub may have broke causing the drop of your tub.  The tub has a warranty on it but the labor to put it in is around 3hrs give or take any hour.
