    Default Whlpl direct drive transmissions

    When these transmissions sound as if they are spinning but are not, what part inside is usually bad? I have taken them apart and all looks good to me. I suspect the...spin cam? Not sure that is what it is called. On the end of the shaft.

    Neutral drain drive or spin gear is most common....outside the tranny is the clutch or drive block.

    I am familiar with the drive blocks and clutch. I may have to study the neutral drain a little more. The spin gear is the big plastic gear, right?

    How do you know if it is the neutral drain assembly?

    I have taken them apart and nothing drew my attention. Change transmissions and they work fine, so that tells me it was something in the transmission (I think). They would have the same spin tube if the drive block looked like it was mating up with the tube like it should.

    Thanks

    Neutral drive assembly is more what happens when the motor pauses but the gearbox/tranny does not switch or set up for spin when the motor comes back on....sometimes a longer pause like lifting the lid and closing it or hearing a bit of a clunk when the tranny switches from neutral to spin is a sign of the neutral drive assembly. Noises and no spin at all is often the spin gear.
