I have been trying to troubleshoot my washer problem. It won't start spinning after the first pause and drain. Sometimes it will start spin when it starts draining, but when it doesn't turning the timer off and back on will lock it in and it starts to spin. 

 

I have replaced the clutch and the drive coupler and when I have it apart and work the brake/drive tube it seems sticky. Sometimes it needs some force to turn it up even when the brake is disengaged. 

 

When it does start spinning on its own the clunk it makes when it locks in is anything but quiet. And all the forums I have read suggest that it is the clutch, coupler or the gearbox itself. From what I have read that if there isn't a pause between the agitate and drain then the timer would be suspect. But if there is a pause and all the other parts are good then the gearbox isn't locking into spin. 

 

Just want to ask anyone that may have an idea before I spend 120 bucks on a transmission.

  The pause is supposed to be after drain. If there is no pause in the motor after agitation, it would just keep agitating. After agitation stops, the motor starts in the other direction causing drain with no spin. After draining, the motor must pause so that the gearcase shifts out of neutral. The motor starts again to start spin while continuing to drain. In other words, the washer is supposed to drain first without spinning. If there is no pause after drain, the timer is bad. What is the model number of your washer?
