Question about Washing Machines
If the machine starts with accepting water to the desired level and then not moving forward , it can be related to failure of the motor or the controller unit. check voltage to motor at the wash/spin cycle and if this is absent , the fault is within the processor

Sounds like you may have lost your basket drive and clutch assembly. This is a pretty involved job to replace for sure, and requires you to remove the inner basket, drop the transmission, etc. Does the unit make any wierd noises, like popping or grinding? Does it agitate ok in wash? I would bet almost for sure that its that basket drive and attached sub-pack thats went bad. If you want to try and tackle this yourself, let me know, and will get you directions to do so. Good Luck!!!!

Hi, You can unsnap the plastic splash ring and see if something is between the tubs. The inner tub turns rather hard anyways. The agitator might have a 1/4" screws in the side of it to hold it onto the shaft of the transmission. If not, just pull the agitator up real hard.
Under the agitator is a spanner nut that holds the inner tub in place. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

sounds like this is a clutch and brake assembly problem. The clutch
provide the necessary pressure for the lining to turn with the hub and
the clutch tab to push the brake cam driver and release the brake. The
clutch spring of your washer must be weak or the clutch lining is worn
causing it to slide and not release the brake. This prevents the tab
the clutch spring to force the brake cam driver, release the brake, and
allow the basket to spin particularly when the machine is under load. This is manifested in the spinning of the drum when the machine is empty. The clutch and brake assemblies are located just below the tub and the excessive heat resulted from the friction between the clutch lining and the clutch hub.
Remove the thrust washer from the agitator shaft then remove the clutch and brake assembly from the top of the gearcase by removing the retaining clip using a screwdriver. Unsnap the clip and the clutch retaining ring the slide the clutch off the agitator shaft. Make sure to retain the washer located under the clutch.
Install the new clutch assembly on top of the gearcase then insert the clutch band and hold it in place. Using a pair of needle-nose pliers, place the end caps on the clutch spring and compress to insert into the open end of the band. Release the tension on the spring and the band will stay in place the reinsert the retaining clip on top of the clutch.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
When the washer fills but does not agitate or spin then you can check if the lid switch is fine. You can jump start the lid switch by connecting both the wires with each other or use the third wire to act as jumper between the two. After this if the problem is solved then replacing lid switch is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
