Question about Kenmore 27032

Kenmore Washer won't spin

I have a Kenmore 110.92281800. The washer had loud squeak when starting spin cycle, but would go away once spinning. Now it wont spin, although the motor is turning. I checked to see if the coupler was broken. The pins on both sides of the coupler seem fine. I expected to see them broken off. What next? Gearcase? If so, is this repair worth it? Washer is maybe 15 years old, was here when we moved in. Thanks.

    Yes, I'd like to fix it. What parts will be required? The clutch is about $40 and the brake and drive tube about $100. Is the gearcase OK? One concern is do I do this repair with the age of the washer. Thanks.

    The clutch spins, so the coupler and gearcase seem fine. Clutch too? Ill plan on taking this apart next to assess the brake and drive tube assembly. What do I look for to check if this is bad or a bad clutch?

    One more clarification that may help the diagnosis: before stopping spinning, the spin cycle was slowing down and seizing yesterday, then tripping the breaker. At first, I could restart the washer and it would work but now the motor spins the clutch but the tub and agitator do not move although the agitator starts to move a little. Once I get it apart, how will I know what is broken/needs replaced? Thanks.

If the clutch spins and the transmission does not it is a bad clutch.
While you have it down replace the direct drive coupling also.
And yes, if the machine is in good condition otherwise it is worth doing the repair.
