Drive Splutch Kit. This kit has 6 parts; a spring, housing, cam ring, basket drive gear, pulley, and nut. The pulley is driven by the drive belt and the splutch works with the mode shift actuator to operate the washplate and spin the inner basket. A worn splutch can cause spin or washplate problems.
The drive motor might be defective. However, the drive motor is rarely at fault for this symptom. Before replacing the drive motor, first check all of the more commonly defective washer components. If none of those components are defective, consider replacing the drive motor. To determine if the drive motor is defective, first ensure that the motor is getting power. If the drive motor hums but doesn’t run, is noisy, or does not turn freely, replace it.
Inspect the door strike assembly for damage. If the door strike is broken, replace it. The door strike is not repairable—if it is broken, you must replace it.
