Default Maytag transmission repair?
Model Number: A612   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years

Hi,
Have a Maytag A612 Series 4. Pretty clean for the age, but the transmission belt started smoking (well, not literally, but it smelled like burning rubber), and I thus suspected the transmission. Turned very smoothly in the spin direction, but very difficult to turn manually in the agitate direction. Figured it was worth a shot to see if perhaps it was just a bearing and would be cheap to fix. More I tore into it, it seemed less likely, as eventually removed the entire transmission, and the external bearings were fine. Bit gummed up on the spring loaded seal, but nothing obvious.
So I took it to work today, and pulled the transmission apart. (2-3438, the one with the stacked stamped counterweight) All the gears are beautiful, and there is nothing the matter inside. However the output shaft is completely bound up in the output bearing which I assume is just a big bronze bushing of which you can see about a 1/4 inch at the top. There is no way I could turn it by hand, and I didn't see any snap ring or anything, but a light tap with the lead hammer didn't budge it. Think it is galled up, or just gummed up? How can I get it apart without destroying it? If I have to replace the entire transmission, I'll probably junk the machine, but if I can do it for the price of bearings and seals, it may be worth getting another 5 years out of the machine.
Thanks.

If you have problems in agitate, you have failed bushings inside the tranny that are very difficult to get to and fix. As far as I know, these parts are not available.
