A week ago the machine stopped spinning. It would agitate just fine. I tipped it over and found that the pulley would turn loose counterclockwise very easy but the brake was not releasing and the drive shaft was not engaging so that it would spin the drum. When I attempted to move the drum by hand it is tight as the brake is still engaged. I also noticed that all the information I could find says that counter clockwise the drive shaft will go up 3/8 inch and it looks like mine is only going up 1/8 inch. I removed the transmission pulley, and the brake assembly and noticed it spins freely in either direction when attempting to spin it from top but I can not get the drive shaft to engage the spin tub counter clockwise. Can someone tell me what this is. Transmission, clutch or something else, I bought an old magic chef washer on craigs list but want to learn from this one. Funny thing is the magic chef machine has all the same mechanical parts as the legacy.
