It auger would barely spin and the machine would squeal to a stop after the spin cycle. After reading some other posts on here, I decided that it is most likely the brake so I bought the brake repair kit. Because the machine was old, I took the time to clean it while I was repairing the brake; thus the extra time, but it was well worth it.1) go to hard ware store and buy 6 2" #10-24 screws; they will be required to remove and install the brake spring2) you have to gut the machine (which is very easy) - working from the top * unplug, drain water, and move it to an open space where you can easily work on the floor around it, and where you have a wall to support the top panel of the machine * tilt washer on the side and remove the drive belt and pulley from the main shaft in the center * lower washer and then remove the front panel and raise the top panel to rest against the wall/backstop * remove the auger * remove the white top from the tub * remove any hoses connected to the plastic tub * now you can push the tub to each side so that you can remove the springs - it is easier if you have someone push the tub down from the top while you remove the springs with pliers. * remove the tub3) remove the brake - working from the top with the tub turned upside down * remove every other screw from the break and replace with the 2" screws * remove the remaining original screws and replace with the 2" screws * now, release the screws so that the brake spring is release with equal pressure on each screw * remove the brake guts and replace with new4) now would be a good time to clean out any mold and mildew5) re-assembly is opposite of removal* * the springs are more difficult to attach, and I would recommend starting with the spring in the back, by the drain and working towards the front of the washerMy machine is now quieter than when we first bought it! The brake was the problem!03-2011
