Brake is will not disengage/basket won't spin.

I recently took the motor and transmission off while trying to clean out a serious mould problem from the outer drum. When I put it back together the basket won't spin. Looks like the brake is stuck on. I can push the brake lever arm and spin the drum by hand but the arm won't disengage on its own.

    BTW - The agitator works perfectly, pump will drain the tank, just won't spin.

SOURCE: REAR BRAKE DRUM WON,T COME OFF

Make sure the wheel turns and adjuster backed off . If you can see a Countersunk screw in the face of the hub remove it.  If hitting it fails , usually you can see two small 8,10 or 12 mm holes in the face of the hub . Find the correct bolts and screw them into the the hub , it should force the the drum to pop off . What car is it , and does it have tapered wheel bearings on the outside of the drum?

SOURCE: REAR BRAKE DRUM WON,T COME OFF

I just had a similar problem with 1997 Hardbody.

Cause: The E-brake cable was binding up inside the drum causing the e-brake not to disengage - despite the handle being released inside the cab.

Solution: Look for 2 threaded holes in the drum. Insert two bolts and crank these bolts in. They will eventually work to push the drum off the wheel. Be careful to go slow and evenly (don't snap off the bolts!). Penetrating oil and mallet will help the process.

SOURCE: ryobi gas chainsaw- chainsaw brake is stuck on. How do I release

You just have to pull the lever back, like it was on the saw, until it clicks/unlocks. It may be hard to do, but thats what has to be done.

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.

The machine doesn't spin properly and doesn't drain the water


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Lid Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and transmission. Another common problem is the lid switch.

Drive Belt If the washer won't spin, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin properly.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer spin the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

Drive Block If the washer won't spin the drive block might be worn out or may have come loose. Underneath the agitator the drive block connects the inner tub (the one that spins around) to the transmission. If the drive block wears out the transmission shaft will still spin but the tub may not - or it may spin slowly. This also usually causes a lot of noise. The drive block is relatively easy to replace.

Clutch Assembly If the washer won't spin, the clutch assembly might be worn out. The clutch assembly makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It is designed to allow the tub to get up to the proper spin speed gradually. As the clutch wears out it may prevent the tub from spinning. The clutch is not repairable, if it is loud or not working properly it will need to be replaced.

Clutch Band kit If the washer won't spin, the clutch band kit might be worn out. The clutch makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It is designed to allow the tub to get up to the proper spin speed gradually. As the clutch wears out it may prevent the tub from spinning. If the washer won't spin, this clutch band kit may need to be replaced.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged It will have to be replaced.

Tub Bearing If the washer won't spin the tub bearing might have seized. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

Tub Seal and Bearing Kit If the washer won't spin the tub seal and bearing might have seized. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

Bearing If the washer won't spin the bearing might have seized. This is not common. The bearing doesn't require any normal maintenance. They generally go bad when the tub seal fails and allows water to leak past into the bearing.
Basket Drive If the washer won't spin the basket drive clutch might be worn out. The basket drive sits on top of the transmission and engages with the inner tub. If the basket drive wears out the tub won't spin.

Basket Drive Hub Kit If the washer won't spin the basket drive hub might be worn out. The hub is a set of plastic gears underneath the agitator. The basket drive hub kit is easy to replace with standard hand tools.
Transmission If the washer won't spin the transmission might be worn out or defective. There are numerous more likely causes when a washer won't spin, which should be checked first.

The spinning cycle gets rid of all the water but the clothing are still extremely damp. What's part do I need to buy to fix it?


I here this complaint often and I find transmission slippage to be often the problem. It needs to get into the "high speed" spin. Tilt the machine against the wall, while holding the inner basket stationary with one hand, rotate the pulley counter clockwise and see if you have slippage. If you do, repeat the same procedure again without holding the basket and look to see if the brake is disengaging. If the brake is not disengaging then replace the thrust bearing assembly. If it is disengaging, then your likely cause is the tranny. Hope this helps,

Washer does not spin but makes loud clicking noise?


sounds like you could have a problem with your basket drive tube,around the clutch brake area! my machine would not spin and i found out the bottom of the basket drive tube had been ground off by the thrust washer which resulted in the clip that holds the brake release arm fell off and broke the 2 little pins on the brake release arm and it would not disengage the brake to allow the basket to spin, i bought a used basket drive tube and a new clutch ,installed and unit works fine now,,,so take a look also check your motor coupling see if it is broken ,,, and 1 more thing ,up under your agitator is the basket drive block sometimes it shears off the notches on the top of your drive tube!

During spin cycle a grinding noise starts and a burning smell develops if I let it spin on then smoke comes out


could be your motor coupling, clutch or brake linings. if it smells like rubber burning then it is your motor coupling,, ,,,,mine was doing that and found out the clip that holds on the part to disengage the brake had ground off the end of my basket drive tube and the arm fell down thus no spin ,part cost more than the washer is worth! guess i'll be picking up a new 1! yea the grinding noise could be in your clutch,brake area!

Washer won't spin


You won't be able to spin this by hand because you have a brake system above the transmission. When not in the spin cycle this brake stays engaged When it goes to the spin cycle it disengages so that the drum can spin at the end of the spin cycle if you have ever watched it the tub stops almost on a dime. Sounds like your brake is not releasing when washer goes to spin cycle. Try this site for what parts look like www.repairclinic.com The 2 of you sound as if you know what you are doing Good Luck.

My direct drive washer spins slow


Always rule out first: Unsorted, too big or off balance load, too high or restricted drain, oversudsing or water not draining completely out before going into spin. Otherwise the brake could be not releasing fully or the clutch lining is worn. Pull the basket and transmission and check the basket drive.

Everything is working except the spin cycle


Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.
