Awesome, blondejon!

I learn something new every day.  Do I buy the whole clutch assembly, just the clutch, also the Band and Lining?

I also read on another site that a responder was replacing the basket drive whenever he replaces a clutch because it he says it will go out soon after the clutch.  The basket drive is around $135 so I may just go new if I have to replace than AND the clutch.

I'd say this responder doesn't know what he's talking about.  The basket drive is just the spin tube with the brake attached.  I have never seen the brake go bad and I have worked on literally thousands of these. The only times I've seen a bad spin tube is when the drive block loosens up and bends the ears on the top of the tube.

If he replacing basket drive with each clutch I think he is gouging folks. I have NEVER seen a bad basket drive yet. I have had to remove them and clean em up if they been sitting in the yard a while but never have I had to replace one.

Just finished replacing clutch and running a load of laundry.  I torqued one of the motor mounting bolts off  :( but hope the remaining 2 hold up for at least a little while.

I did notice a slight "clunk" when it shifts gears from one phase to another, i.e. shifting into rinse mode.  I hope that is the new clutch breaking in?  I don't recall if the old one made the same sound.  Otherwise everthing seems to be working.

If it was just a slight clunk I would not worry about it.

I replaced the clutch and it was working again but would hear a "clunk" when it was shifting gears from agitate to spin.  After about 4 uses, I started smelling a burnt plastic smell and on the last use it stopped spinning at all and just makes a lound humming sound.  Motor burned out?  If it did, what could cause that?
