It shows you how easy it is to change the components.     Especially the actuator which is the most changed part I've had so far.   Never seen a seal go yet, though.   Good video

That's a handy video.  I have yet to see one of these in my neck of the woods.  I feel like I know them from this forum, and it is nice to see this video.  Lots that is still familiar, but lots that have changed.

I'm gonna be rebuilding one, possibly two old dd trannys this week.  That'll be fun.  I wonder how they compare with the VMW?  Will we get a chance to open those trannys, or will they just be swap-outs?

The VMW transmission is just a swap out at this time and for what they cost I can't image that will ever change.
In time I bet we see the VMW transmission get even cheaper, just like the DD one did after it had been out for a few years.

Here is a site I started with some information about the VMW.

From looking at the tranny it don't look to be serviceable to me.

JW,  next one I get I'm gonna try to tear it apart and see what can be done with it.    Problem is,   most of them are changed for being noisy.    And I remember from the class we had from whirlpool  it has alot of plastic in it.    We'll see.
