  It seems that Maytag didn't think much of the skills of us "dumb" washing machine mechanics. I came across one of their TS bulletins that states, "Dual drive transmissions will be non-repairable in the field. Internal components must be assembled carefully to avoid transmission failure. The dual drive transmission will only be available as an assembly."

Could be more to do about sales. Are they more likely to sell a new washer if a transmission can no longer be repaired, but has to be replaced as a assembly?

  Maybe, but when they were designing this transmission, the criteria for parts was that they would make the transmission last for 15 years on average. That has turned out to be a flop with the failures of the pinion gear.

  It was in an article about the plastic gears used in the transmission. It talked about Jack Crain, the inventor of the transmission, and stated, "Maytag’s requirements called for the transmission to last at least 15 years in residential service." It also states, "After the plastic gears passed laboratory life tests, Maytag put them into production- line washing machines in September, 1996. To date, the new units have performed satisfactorily with no surprises." This article was written in 2000.

Eric I think I might have a couple (dozen) transmissions in the shop. I believe I may have photo's that I took of the transmission being disassembled that I'll try to forward to you. If not I'll rip one down and document it and photograph every step. Might take a little bit though.
