I have never worked on a washer before. But, I am a certified auto mechanic and an engineering student. I should be able to fix this thing. If the main seal from the tub was leaking could that cause my problem? But, then the brake would be wet also, right? How hard is it to replace the main seal and the clutch? If i were to do that would i also replace the gearbox? (Do to displaced oil). Is this repair even cost effective? The washer is only 3 years old and a large capacity. Crap now i really don't know what to do. Please help.
