Question about Washing Machines
I have just replaced the following parts on this machine. Hub and seal kit(p/n R9900457), drive bell and seal kit (p/n R9900189), Bearing underside of wash tub, lower bearing under transmission and a new belt. After putting the machine back together, as mentioned in the directions, I put water in the machine set it to final spin for 30 to 60 seconds.
Now to my present problem. The washer will fill but as soon as it switches to the wash cycle I get a humming / buzzing sound for the timer area. If I help the wash tub by hand it will engage. The motor sounds heavy, like it is forcing.
Please keep in mind that I had no problem prior to replacing the items mentioned, they were replaced because the seal was leaking and the bearing (tub) was noisy. Is it possible that if I over tightened the hex nut that holds the hub assembly to the transmission that it would cause this problem?
Check you have the hot and cold water supply turned on. Check the water inlet hoses are not kinked.
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

Yes, you definitely have tightened it too much.
I do not recall what the torque should be for that, but I think you should check out the tightness of the spanner nut and look at the drive block under the tub.
If the drive block if bad, you will have to replace it.
The symptom for this is if the tub spins free by hand but not when the motor turns it.
