Question about Washing Machines
If you have a Whirlpool or Kenmore direct-drive washer with a weak or lazy spin which gets worse with a heavier load, it may have a bad clutch or transmission Chances are the clutch is just slipping the only concern is if the trans is leaking oil thats getting on the clutch causing is to slip. If you tilt the unit back you can look inside the cabinet if you see oil slung around the inside trans is leaking if not you just have a worn out clutch

Your machine is direct-drive therefore it doesn't use a belt. The motor is directly coupled to the transmission by means of a coupler not a belt. The problem is in the clutch assembly.The clutch band has a tab that pushes the brake cam driver to release the brakes and allow the basket to spin. If the clutch lining is worn or the clutch spring is weak, the friction between the clutch hub and the lining is not enough to drive a large load.
