Scenario: Motor coupler broke. Unplugged the washer and raised it up on automotive jack stands. Pried off clips to loosen water pump. Removed screws and clips to loosen motor. Removed three bolts that hold the gearbox assembly to the stuff above it. This allowed it to drop down and twist so I could easily remove the pump and motor. Removed old coupler and replaced w/new. Re-installed motor and water pump. Then, I was unable to raise the gearbox assembly back high enough to re-thread the three bolts. It's about half an inch too low for the bolts to thread.

Q: What is needed to raise / re-position the gearbox assembly so the three bolts can be re-threaded?

Thank you, O' Wise One,

Scott

Daym!!  Why you do that for, here is how to replace the coupler...you will need to rotate the lever on the top of the clutch to get it all of the way up before you can get the tranny bolted in..in your washer...

OOooooh, yeah, it is a washer after all.

btw, Any advice on rotating the lever on top of the clutch of my washer? Lying on my back I can't see much up there, even w/mirror and flashlight. What am I feeling around for and how does it work? Thanks so much.

Yeah, it's a washer. I was so fired up about getting some expert help I made a fool of myself with the dryer bit.

No, I didn't remove the bolt from the agitator before dropping the gearbox.

The problem is that the spin tube/brake assembly has dropped down from the weight of the transmission and motor assembly dropping when you unbolted it.

You need to start over and do this right.

You're going to have to remove the cabinet to work on it correctly, then remove the agitator, take the pump and motor off the transmission again and remove the transmission.

After you have removed the transmission you can turn the brake release cam lever by hand and push the spin tube/brake assembly all the way back up into place where it should be.

Then put it all back together, make sure when you install the transmission the white brake release cam is on the opposite side of the clutch spring.

I am in the same situaton that the orignal poster is in. I am having a hard time understanding how this half inch gets made up. (I originally thought the clutch was bad)I have taken off the agitator, but now there is this specialized looking nut. Are there any recommendations for getting that off? Do I even need to?

Everything is off the machine except for the brake assembly what would be the best piece of advice to reattaching the clutch and gearbox assemblies?

Yes as a matter of fact I have re-read it several times and at no point does it discuss exactly how the half inch is made up.  other than "doing it correctly". 

Albiet slightly helpful the statement remains ambigous.

Did you read the questions that I posted? They still seem relevant despite your reply.

See the above BOLD part of post, pretty much same as Poobah just told you. So, HMMMM, maybe it was you that wasn't reading the advice giving????
