Question about Washing Machines
It might be the transmission, might not.
Some washers that used a belt drive between the motor and transmission would have the same symptoms if a solenoid didn't actuate properly.
Most washers now are being made without a belt drive, the motor is directly coupled. Motor spins one way for wash cycle, and spins the other way for spin. Basket still only turns 1 way though. In this kind of setup, your drive coupler could be stripped in 1 direction, and still fine in the other.
Take a look at the transmission, determine if it is belt drive or not. If there is, look for a wiring diagram pasted somewhere, usually on the access cover. Check the solenoids first, before disassembling for transmission service.
