When the washer goes into the spin cycle it sounds like it is slipping or not catching. Not sure if it would be a Splutch assembly or is it the transmission. How would I know which it is?
I have the same issue. started with belt slipping off because pulley on splutch worked its way down. i cannot get the nut off. what can i do? RicHi,
Sounds like the Splutch nut may be coming loose. Watch the video below and check it first.
If that Splutch nut is loose and coming off, I'd suggest going to your local hardware store and buy and apply loctite blue 242 threadlocker and re-tighten that nut to keep it from loosening up again.
Here it is: Threadlockers from Loctite Products | Threadlocking / Mechanical Gasketing | Loctite Adhesives
ok, i got the nut off by prying down on the pulley since i am replacing it anyway. the problem is that the shaft spins when trying to tighten the new nut and I don't want to pry on the new pulley. considering using a pair of vise grips with rubber on the ends so shaft does not get damaged. seems to be the only way to get the shaft to stop spinning. any other ideas??model is whirlpool wtw5640x0 serial is c04031578. problem is nut wont budge but will not tighten either. when you turn the nut the spline for basket spins or something in transmission is free spinning. no way to hold the spline without damaging threads.
