Question about Washing Machines
It wasn't that to begin with, sorry you did all that for nothing :(
I assume it works in wash cycle, so most likely it's the transmission shaft tube and brake assembly that needs repair/replacement.
If you know how to remove the cabinet, remove the pump and motor. (Just in case you don't, it's the two screws on the head to take out, flip the head back, then remove the clips holding the cabinet down. Pull forward and off, that's it)
Take the agitator out of the basket. Pop the top off, use socket and ext. to remove, pull agitator out
Lay the machine on it's back, remove the three bolts and slide the transmission out
Raise the machine back up, if you can get that 'nut' off the top of the tube assembly, there are tools for that but if you can do it without the trouble of obtaining that tool, you should be ok. Remove the tube assembly, and replace or just replace the brake assy. without removing the tube. Whichever is easier for you, that's the answer, best of my knowledge
Best of luck to you, let me know how it goes
