so you could stop getting punched in the face by your smart alleck comments

Maybe it's from having to justify my diagnosis to those who have no clue.


Sorry if you can't take a Christian's effort to help you thru your problem. If your idea of solving attitude issues is by punching, then you might need some attitude adjustment yourself. I'll be glad to give you my address if you think you want to provide me with some enlightenment, Grasshopper.

Realistically speaking, I can't see how myself or any other "joe" could provide enough credentials on a forum like this, so you have to weight the advice as it is given. Lord knows you will get  lots of different 'opinions' on what the problem could be. Since this is not even MY forum, I am sticking my neck out here to offer you advice, therfore I cross all my T's and dot my I's.

So just out of curiosity, why do you stick your neck out to offer advice if it's not your forum?  Do you get paid for your karma points?  Does the forum pay you somehow?

How does this forum validate credentials?  what is your incentive for offering help?

No, in fact I was thinking about charging for them...what do you think is a fair price ?:)


The only compensation I ever get from helping out here is if by some small chance someone clicks on that little beer symbol over there on the left. And I gotta admit, I would have starved long ago if that was all I relied on, cause most folks take the advice and run off to save that $100 with out so much as an afterthought. Glad I have a day job.

Do I sound cynical?

I think the gentlemen answered your suggestion already, O Sublime One.

I think repair-man gave a pretty good explanation to the problem, why do you think it's a bad coupler?

You might want to substantiate your comment now, Your Flatulence.

Your washer has a transmission with a neutral pack in it. That means the neutral pack allow for the water pump to do its thang and pump the water out without spinning. The washer timer will allow for the pump to clear the water out of the tub and come to a screaming halt. When the washer stops the neutral pack shifts the tranny into the spin mode. When you opened the lid you cause the washer to stop and when you lowered it the washer started spinning well anyway it should have started spinning instead it makes a noise and don't spin? Well if that's the case then that there coupling is probabaly broken.

No, I said that when I opened the lid it made a clunk sound, then when I close the lid it starts to spin.  It does spin it just doesn't do it automatically, I have to open and close the lid for it to start the spin cycle.

The clunk noise is the sound of the brake branging the tub to a screeching halt so you won't reach in and grab a dashiki while it is spinning wildly and have it wring yer arm off Kimosabe.  O0

The clunk was the sound of me banging my head against this desk...didn't think you could hear it from there :)
