Hey guys. I'm having a no spin problem that seems to be pretty common on these washers. So far I've done timer, lid switch, coupler, and clutch.
I'm just about certain it's the transmission. When I remove it and manually spin the coupler counterclockwise, the shaft rotates back and forth. That tells me agitate works (which it did). If I switch from rotating counterclockwise to clockwise, it will continue to "agitate" for a couple rotations, and then the shaft stops spinning. At this point I can feel a little bit of pressure on the coupler (but not much), as though I have to rotate the coupler just a little more forcefully.
I opened up the gearcase and everything "appears" to be fine. I say that because I can only compare to two-dimensional pictures on the internet, so I can't tell if something is worn down. Nothing appears broken or otherwise out of place.
I'm reading that a neutral drain kit could fix it, but I'd like to get some input before I make another purchase. Is there anything in particular I can try to pinpoint the problem? I have no problem tearing the transmission down to the bare guts, but it'd be nice to at least get a confirmation that the behavior is suggesting something is wrong with the transmission.
