I'm working on a Whirlpool Vertical Modular Washer. Complaint: no agitate, no spin. I verified the complaint: washer will fill and drain but won't agitate or spin.
Basket turns freely, main drive pulley attached, nut tight, belt intact.
Putting the machine into diagnostic mode, I get error code F7 E1 - not basket movement detected. Not very illuminating.
Removed/reseated all motor and mode shifter wire harness connections down below. Removed/reseated mode shifter harness connector at main board.
Green LED was lit on main control board.
Mode shifter motor resistance checked good. But no 120vac measured (with harness connected) for mode shifter motor at J16:1-2
While I could enter diagnostic mode, I could not get the machine into the mode for manual spin or agitate according to this procedure:
Never got the Spin and Done LEDs to light up.
So, my first trip troubleshooting was inconclusive and I've got to go back. What else can I do to nail down the problem?

Successful activation of Diagnostic Test Modes will be indicated by all status LEDs
.. While I could enter diagnostic mode,
(except for Lid Locked) flashing ON and OFF in half-second intervals.

Been getting some strange problems on these things. I don't have high hopes for these things long term...

I would pull the splutch and see if it is broken,if ok then the gearcase.
Yep, that was gonna be my next Ex-Lax move. Domo for the confirmation!
Here's the video of (most) of what I did today...
Seems I had one making that grinding noise ....the splines where the basket mounts on the gearcase shaft had shat the bed...
Domo, Brother Kurtius! What'd the fix turn out to be on this one?
