Unit will turn on - just as always - agitate - but NOT spin. Even with no clothes in it.

The unit will drain -

I've seen various posts, but could not fine one that was exactly like this - if you were me - what parts would you buy first to try to replace?

Can you help it get started by giving the basket a whirl with your hand ?

After it Drains, try opening the Lid for 5 seconds, then close the Lid
Does it Spin now ?

OK so I misinformed a little info.

Giving a whirl with clothes in does not help start it -

however - it has not been tried yet with no clothes. Does that help narrow it down that it can't be assisted with starting the spin?

Does it agitate and not spin?
Does it to neither?
If it spins but not agitate reach under the agitator if you can barely get your fingers under it thats ok but if there is lots of room then needs agitator and basket drive...
Need more information

After the unit drains, what happens ? Does the motor continue to run ?

Ok - went by today and observed the machine.

With no clothes in - it turns on - and agitates, but not like it normally agitates - slower...like it's struggling. No matter what setting it is put on - but no funny noises.

When comes time to spin - nothing happens. You can hear the motor on and trying, but thats about it. Even if you give it a whirl with no clothes - Same result. We tried holding the sensor depressed with our finger to observe.

It will drain fine on it's own.

What do you think?

Both parts are not expensive at all, I just ordered the coupling. [Part link ==> Motor Coupling ]

RegUS_PatOff - What do you mean try to run two speeds at once?

Do you agree to try the coupling first as well - then the switch if not?

Go ahead and remove the coupling. You will know quickly if it is bad.

... RegUS_PatOff - What do you mean try to run two speeds at once?
... Do you agree to try the coupling first as well

1) if the Switch is bad, it may be connecting two speeds at once... could be tested with a meter.
2) yes
