I have a Whirlpool Estate Washer, that won't spin in the spin cycle with a moderate to heavy load. The agitator works and I can get it the basket to spin if I help it, but won't spin at top speed. I checkout the motor coupler and it looks good. There is a little grease on the floor under the right side of the transmission when looking from the front. Any idea what wrong?

I have gone over the washer 3 times and can't find a model number, this is the information on the front panel. If someone could let me know where to find the model number I would greatly appreciate it.

Whirlpool Estate
Heavy Duty Super capacity 8 cycles 4 combination
1/2 hp motor
Double Action Agitator
Self cleaning filter

The model number is TAWS800JQ1

There nothing stuck between the basket and tub.

I'm not sure about the clutch, since I can only see the out side of the clutch housing. There are particles on the top of the transmission housing. I can only turn the agitator by hand a quarter of turn counter clockwise. The motor is not attached. I do have ring of grease on the inside the cabinet.

The gearcase leaked oil on the clutch. Looks like you might have to replace both the gearcase and clutch, not a bad job, but the parts are rather expensive.

I will take the clutch apart to see if grease did get into it.

I took the transmission out and the clutch was dry, but worn and the transmission cover was leaking oil. I open the transmission and it still had oil in it and the gears looked good, so I replace the oil and resealed the cover tight using RV sealant. I replaced the clutch and washer worked on one load so far.
