    Hi, thanks. The motor is making a clicking sound and the speed of the spinning agitator is going very slow. The coupler is fine. The clicking sound reminds me of a relay trying engage and disengage.

    Yes, water pumps out ok.

    It was the relay switch on the motor which made the clicking. Yicks...big bucks! Thanks though. Lloyd

You most likely have a bad drive coupling between the motor and gearcase.
Set the machine on a spin cycle and turn it on.
If the motor is running and the washer is not spinning, bad drive coupling.

    Is it pumping the water out within 2 minutes?

    This would indicate a bad clutch.

Could be the door switch, do you hear a clicking sound when you close the lid?

Does the motor hum at all in drain/spin?
