The drive belt on the washer started slipping, so I replaced it. It's still slipping. The belt turns the pulley on tub in the direction to spin the entire tub just fine, but it won't turn the pulley in the other direction so the agitator turns. Also, when I move the tub pulley by hand, it's much harder to turn in the direction that moves the agitator. I am guessing that there's something wrong in the agitator/clutch mechanism. Any thoughts? Is this worth calling a repairman? The washer is 23 years old, and I'm not inclined to repair it if it costs more than $150 or so.
