Probably is different. I soaked it with wd40 and will let it soak for awhile. I will upgrade to a 3lb hammer!! Hope I don't break something else. If I do, I may consider getting an Amana. Thanks for the response.

I did remove the drive belt and ran it through the spin cycle as suggested. No noise so I can rule out the water pump. Adding to my preivious post, is there a special process for removing the brake other than beating it with a hammer?

First you need to make sure that you remove the holding clamp, then
you need one of these..

Yup, that's the wrench. I went against the experts advice and gave the brake a "whack" in the other direction. Came loose right away. Now, the next issue is the bearing is shot, but will not come off of the transmission shaft. There isn't any room to get behind it and pry it off and it is recessed in the transmission cover so I can't get anything on it to pull it free. Do you know if they make a special bearing puller for these? I am considering putting some heat to it. Thanks for all the help and I won't get an Amana!!

at this point, can you tell if it turns freely and smoothly?
sorry, nevermind. You wrote that it's shot (I need to read slower).

Wobbles all over the place as it is grinding. Some of the bearings are even flat.

Just be careful where you apply heat. You could run the risk of
damaging an oil seal in the lower part of the gear case.

I tried some heat, didn't work. Do you have any ideas that will get this bugger off? Do I have to take the shaft out? I am almost out of patience. I have to believe this is not an isolated problem. I have to take the wrench back today so the clock is ticking. Do you know if there is an on-line repair manual available?

Thanks
