    Default Spinning and agitating?

    Amana
    Model : LW7563w2
    Serial No. : r 9511013589

    I assume this to be manufactured in 1995 in the eleventh week.

    The tub spins as it tries to agitate. Well, it starts off trying ti agitate a little. AS it spins faster with a load, the agitator tends to more or less index in one direction.

    Also, when I raise the door, the tub coasts to a stop and takes a few seconds to completely stop.
    The belt has chunks missing, so it will need replacing.

    Anyway to tell if this is more than brake pads and a belt?

    P.S. I took the drive bell/block off, and it seems to be okay. There was what looked like some rust under it.

    Thanks

    P.S. Dang, I think it has been a few years lmore than 7 or 8. Man! Where did the time go?

    Hi,

    That is what it looks like yes.

    Belt issue, tranny issue, brake issue, rusting in the seal and bearing area = boat anchor?!!?

    Boat anchor?

    Hey, that's twice in about 7 or 8 years you suggested that. Wait a minute....you were right the first time to. LOL!

    So, no way to isolate the tranny as the cause here?
    Oh well, may be some parts on it I can salvage.

    Yea, tranny replacement would be ay out of guestion. I was justwondering if thre was a way to isolate it as part ofthe problem.

    Anyway, I guess this will be a parts machine if anyone around here needs something tat works on it.
