.To replace the drive block you do not need to remove the transmission. ( not unless I missed some thing in one of your posts about needing the trans removed)..........Remove agitator.......lift top......remove splash ring..... remove spanner nut........ wiggle spin basket, lift....... remove drive block ( spinbasket or spin tube)....... install new block...ALIGN tabs.........reassemble..........30 min job.......It  almost takes longer to get the check and do the paper work than the repair....  And BUDGET is correct, in the picture of the spin tube ( provided by Reg U.S.)  item 13 is what you turn to release the brake and push back into it's correct location.   DO not beat on this item ( too late?) you could damage a brake shoe or  the drum ( item with piece of foam )  Keep us posted ........
