Question about Washing Machines
This washer does not use a drive belt. It uses a transitional coupling to transfer the motors power to the pump and transmission. The motor does double duty, it has the pump mounted on one side and the transmission on the other and it is reversing. One direction does the wash mode and the other direction does the pump and spin. The transmission feature a neutral pack which allows the pump to drain the water first. Then when the timer pauses for a moment the spin pawl gets slung outward under the main drive gear in the transmission where it will catch 1 of 3 spin bosses under the main drive gear. This causes the basket to spin. All of that is shown in the training manual I am including. So what can go wrong? I strongly suspect your coupling has failed.
A common problem with these washers. Very easy to repair.
