The message i am getting when i push the 2 bottons is The clutch is not mechanically engaging with the basket properly.. I am very short on cash so if there is a way to fix it with out buying any part i would be very happy. the screen displays a problem and will not let the me push any other buttons, i unplugged it , but it still won't close down the screen.

It appears your clutch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Clutch not egaging with basket for my profile harmony washer

If you are getting the message " The clutch is not mechanically engaging with the basket properly " the service manual says to check wiring connections, clutch motor or inverter board.
I rarely see a wiring issue. I'd check the clutch arm and clutch coupler too. They are nylon parts. I'll send you a couple pages from the service manual as soon as I get a chance to scan a few.
