all you gotta do now is remove them bolts on the bottom of the tranny that attach it to the machine and slide it out.

those 3 bolts come out. You have removed the pump and motor and carefully layed the washer on it's side right?

I have an appliance lift and a heavy work bench in my shop . It makes it real easy to work on without laying on the ground. I am too old to be laying on the floor.

Ok, I did not move the washer on it's side, I leaned it back against the wall. I removed the transmission, and the white ear piece is split in two. Is it supposed to be like that?

So I have the agitaer off, what now. Is there a video or an explanation some where that will help me. I've searched the forums for "removing transmission, but I could not find anything.

So, while I was waitin for a reply, I took a good look at the picture of the piece that was sent to me, and compared it to my piece. I don't think it is broken. I have since tried to move the transmission shaft by hand and it will not rotate. Is this normal? the input shaft from where the motor coupler attaches to will move smoothly, but the long shaft will not. It is like when the agitater is attached.

If you turn it one direction the brake will engage and you can not turn it. Try to turn it the other direction and the brake should release and it will turn as it turns the wash basket.

The video above in this topic shows it being turned in one direction, but not the other. That is how it should work.

Do you mean the long shaft on the transmission?

Sorry, I was talking about that white piece on the brake you had a photo of and asked if it was broken.

As for the tranny you should be able to turn the motor coupler by hand, just like the motor would turn it and see the long saft agitate back and forth. Should be easy to do and see with the tranny out of the washer.

Is the tranny leaking any oil?
