Question about Washing Machines
I replaced the transmission because it leaks and made a loud noise, now it works fine except when it goes into the spin cycle it sounds like there,s a bowling ball in the tub. With the tub empty in the spin cycle if I open the lid and by pass the safety and apply a little pressure to the top of the agitator while it spins the noise goes away. I,ve pulled the transmission a dozen times and rotated it, but I can,t see where that makes any difference. What else could be the problem? This noise is totally different than the noise it made before.
Check to be sure inner tub is not spinning freely on spin tube. It can be noisy when this happens. When it's spinning and stops it may continue spinning for a bit when this happens. You usually need to replace spin tube, because the tabs that key into drive block for inner tub break off. Also replace drive block.
