Question about Washing Machines
If washer is running, remove power and remove cabinet. Use a piece of insulated wire to by-pass the lid switch wires, turn the timer to spin and pull out the knob, push the knob back in and pull it out again. Watch for the clutch drum to turn (brown section in picture A). If it is turning but the inner wash tub is not, then more often than not you have a worn clutch lining or a weak spin spring, also the brake may have seized up. If the clutch drum is not turning and washer is not spinning, often the failure is in the transmission gear box. (See picture B).
You may have to get the gear-case out. Then take a look at that tan colored part in the middle of this picture.
If the 2 drive "fingers" are broken off, the clutch can't dis-engage the brake and this means no spin.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
