(..those "zeros" might be the letter "o" in the Mod#..)

Water will fill up in the machine, but once our Washing machine gets to the Agitate and Spin cycles, nothing happens.

By "nothing", you can hear the motor spinning, but the big cork-skrew thing in the middle of the load of laundry does not Agitate or Spin. It just kind of sits there.

If it was a car, I would say the clutch had burned out (the engine goes, but the car does not move).

Is there a Belt or a Clutch in our washing machine that needs to be fixed? Are we off-base - is it something else? Will fixing this problem be a fun project for this married couple?

Thanks.

It's a bad drive coupler. Piece of pie job and very inexpensive part. This page has everything you need to do this repair:

So far, so good.

Dismantled it with no problem. It was the drive coupler; it had shattered.

We will get the part on Monday and put her back together!
