Hello,

Any idea why this washer is making this noise during agitation? It also overflows via the overflow tube with a splash of water coming out with each agitation (when washing with no clothes). I recently replaced the transmission, bearing and seal, and covered the water seal with silicone sealant. Is it worth putting more money into it? TIA

Yep, same exact one. Clicking noise started a few days after resolving all that, and didn’t have time to get to it until just now. I just can’t tell if it’s a suspension part making the noise or if I’ll need another transmission

Yes, its very hard to tell too from the video.

If you got the Mode Shifter & Shaft Assembly from AppliancePartsPros or RepairClinic you have a 365 day warranty on it.
