I remember reading somewhere a while back that the gearcase wasn't supposed to make a knocking noise while agitating and that there was a gearcase adjustment that should be made to eliminate the knock. As I recall, it was an internal tech bulletin I think.

Anyone know anything about this?

There is no adjustment possible and I have never seen a service pointer on this subject. If you have a bad knock on a DD washer make sure all three transmission mounting bolts are in place and tight. Other than that you can replace the complete trans or if you want to repair yours you can replace the agitator shaft which comes with the agitator final drive gear.


There was an adjustment on BD trans for this problem up and till about 1970, there was a large nut on the bottom of the trans if yours is adjustable.

It could very well have been a BD machine. It was almost a year ago I read it.
