Replaced coupler & clutch & removed inner tub, exact same noise.
Ok, so what does a stuck break usually sound like and what are the most obvious symtoms?

I am pursuing this project via the process of elimination and have narrowed it down to either something causing the brake to ingage or the machine is not plugged in.
I won't even ask what a malfunctioning gear case sounds like.

This affords a fairly decent view from motor to gear case.
Inner tub has been removed.
With knob on spin cycle, engage lid switch and clutch appears to be turning a fraction (1/16th in.?) in rhythm with the very loud whomp whomp whomp emitting from the clutch/break area (as best as I can discern with My face 2ft. away).
I understand the brake is meant to engage at end of spin cycle or when lid has been lifted during spin cycle.
Is it possible for an electrical (control panel) short to confuse this function? i.e. spin and break simultaneously?
Can a fouled/broken pump on one side of the motor hinder any/all of the function on the other side of the motor?
Clutch, break cam & coupler have been replaced thus far and inner tub removed.
This project has taken on a life of its own and ken ain't gonna get his mechanical aptitude butt kicked by no 2 bit clunkamatic washOmachine.

You can jumper the outer two wires of the lid switch together to make the washer run with the cabinet off.
