Gearcase/transmission is out of the machine, (physically), when I turn the coupler (it's tight on the shaft) in either direction, the main shaft (that goes through the tub) does not turn.
There is a slight bumping feel (coupler side) like two rubber gears making the slightest of contact.
Is this normal? as in it needs a certain rpm to centrificly ingage? as in no ken your grasping at straws you deperate fool and quit trying to blame the gearcase just because you could'nt find nut'n wrong with the clutch or break?

turning that one way would make the shaft agitate back and fourth and the other way would spin if in the washer.  You should not feel any bumpy bumps, should be smoothe............

Before I start doing backflips for joy...
are you saying "yes the shaft should turn when you turn the coupler and if ain't turning at all in either direction it's likely a kaput gearcase"?
oh be still my heart, could it be that after a week of head banging and hand wringing that we could actually have the broken part?

I cannot remember which way to turn for agitate or spin, but one way will make the agitator go back and fourth, the other way would let it spin after it set up and the clutch/break does its thing.  And no little bumpy bumps would be felt by your fingers....

Just a Quick note of thanks to pegi and all concerning this thread.
It was infact the gearcase after all.
The LOUD whompwhomp (from the gearcase on spin cycle) in such close proximity to the clutch & brake made the initial troubleshoot (for me) somewhat of a pain in the %#!, as in " All I want is to find a broken thingy so I can replace it for cry'n out loud"
Also was pleased with the ease and speed of the parts service here, ordered gearcase Tues. evening, got it in mail this Fri. morning and am doing a load of laundry (quietly) as I write this.
Again, my thanks and hope all have a pleasant and safe holiday weekend.
