Assemble as follows:

Clutch assembly on top of gear box, followed by the retainer clip and then the washer. For future reference, searspartsdirect.com has helpful illustrations to assist you in component identification and assembly. Just type in your model number and follow the links on the next page. I hope this helps you.

Grinding gears when in spin mode When the washer went into rinse mode a loud sound from the gearbox happened. It sounds like the gears are grinding together and not syncing together. took out the clothes...


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Also see the following:

It sounds as if the problem is in the transmission itself.

(It's not as bad as it sounds.)

If you're reasonably comfortable with basic tools (socket set, pliers/vice grips etc) getting to the transmission and taking it apart isn't too difficult and much less expensive than having a repair person charge $170 for a new transmission.

In any case, see the following for how to remove the transmission. YOU DON'T HAVE TO REMOVE THE TUB.


http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137&osCsid=f4b39cb9484cdf1ec5d8d486fe9692d9

The first possibility is the Agitate Cams in the transmission. (Whirlpool part # 62580 / 81) (about $12)

These are two plastic pieces that lift the agitator shaft when the washer goes into spin mode.

If they are worn they may not lift the shaft high enough to keep it out of the way when the washer goes into spin mode. See the above on how the transmission works.

Pull the transmission.

Remove the clutch (the spring holding the clutch to the spin pinion is a bear to replace).

Remove the 8 transmission screws carefully, the transmission is full (16 oz.) of 80-90 weight gear oil (available at most auto parts stores).

Remove the transmission cover 8 bolts.

Pull off the spin pinion.

Push down on the agitate spring and remove the spring clip. Note where is attaches to the main shaft.

The two plastic agitate cam parts pull right off. Don't lose the washer on top of the cams. EVEN IF THEY DON'T APPEAR BROKEN THEY MAY BE WORN ENOUGH TO CAUSE THE PROBLEM.

Replace the cams, washer, spring and clip, pinion, oil (assuming you drained the oil first), cover and clutch parts.

Line up the transmission so that the release cam on the brake drum will snap onto the clutch spring retaining clip and put all parts back in the washer.

The basic tools are screwdriver, small socket set with up to a 1/2" socket, vice grips or good pliers (to remove and replace clips)

While you have the transmission apart, I'd check the other cams and gears inside. There aren't that many.

As an aside, replacing the agitate cams, neutral drain assembly and oil on ours (we had basically the same problem) cost less than $30 vs $170.

How to fit clutch cable to golf gti 2.0i 1997 engine code agg


Under the dash on top of the clutch pedal there will be a retainer clip holding the cable, remove that then a similar clip on the gearbox, you will have to undo a cable holder bracket to remove the cable, the cable will also have a gromet in the firewall that needs to be positioned correctly on assembly, adjust the cable accordingly with the adjuster on the gearbox once installed, good luck drive safely

I am trying to replace a clutch assembly


agitator needs to be disconnected, then tilt machine back disconnect pump and move out of the way. take 3 bolts holding the gearcase out an remove gearcase. Motor does not need to be removed unless you are going to replace the coupler. At the top of the gearcase there are 2 clips that need to be removed and wala, the clutch is easily taken off. reverse procedure, and reinstall gearcase. Be sure to rotate the brake and push up into the bell housing. if the brake comes down at all the gearcase won't reset into place. Good luck. There are detailed pics of this operation on the samurai appliance guru web site.

Whirlpool toploader gearbox/clutch removal


Last Night I took the machine apart to find clutch/brake assy ok gearbox was also ok then I noticed shaft coupling was different than new part I had in stock, new part made totally of nylon, old part fitted to machine has steel insert built into nylon. this was not fully located onto motor shaft and the first 1/4" of motor shaft had been stripped back to round ( no flat faces) also inside the steel lined bore of the nylon coupling had been worn to round.I replaced with new coupling of nylon and ensured both nylon parts fully pushed home onto motor shaft and gearbox shaft with any freeplay / gap being allowed in the rubber drive link. This has worked for now but expect trouble in future with worn motor shaft.
