This question branched from this one Samsung Washer WF218ANS-XAC troubleshooting help needed, smoke in the drum compartment
The long story is in the thread pointed above. Short story..it broke and smoke came out of the drum when my wife opened the front door.
I could order the spider shaft assembly but I don;t know how to determine if other parts are broken. The motor could be fried as well. When I took it apart I could not see anything on the solenoids of the electrical motor ...
Edit: How can I tell if the bearing are all right and it is centered and balanced like before?
