Ok. I pulled out a home repair book and the instructions it gives to pull the transmission is:

Open the cabinet.

Pull the agitator and tub


NOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Even though Samurai said yes to everything.

You don't have to remove the tub, just the agitator to remove the transmission and check the brake cam. If you want to drop the brake/spin tube out then you will have to remove the tub.

Open the cabinet and lay it on it's back.

Then take the electric motor off the tranny

And then remove the tranny.

Do I really need to do all of these steps, just to pull the tranny? Please advise.

If so, I might be calling the repair man to do all this work.

Thanks again.


When you remove the agitator, check the condition of the drive block, this could be your problem.

After you done messing with the brake cam and if the brake/spin tube drops down, make sure you push it all the way back up before trying to reinstall the transmission. If you don't the tranmission won't go back in.
