    We have an HAV2557AWW top load washer that sounds terrible when spinning also. It's draining and does spin but the noise is deafening. If it's the transmission as you posted to the previous person, where can I find this brake tool?

    Model # HAV2558AWW, Rev 10. Washer works fine, drains etc. but when in the spin cycle it makes a squealing noise. Some disassembly has been done looking for something caught in the works, but all is clear. Suspect the spin bearing. What is this BRAKE TOOL? Where can one be bought/rented? Also, can I get detailed repair instructions?

I'm afraid you need a new transmission, which includes the spin bearing. You can do this in aboput 2-4 hours ONLY if you borrow or rent a BRAKE TOOL. Write back if this is one you feel you want to tackle. I can walk you through it.

I would suggest Service Technician is cheaper than doing it yourself Bev007. It will save you headache too. Depending on the severity of the damage, you'll be working on the transmission attaching the shaft of the pulsator or agitator.
