It's a Roper AL4132V (direct drive top loader). It fills, agitates, and drains but doesn't spin. You can hear the motor/pump running and it sounds fine, it just won't spin. When it should be spinning the agitator twitches a little.

I checked the drive coupler and it's fine.

Thanks in advance,

Jeff

If I open the lid and actuate the switch with a screw driver, I can hear the motor running

Did you take off the motor to check the dive coupler?
