Thanks, I'll go ahead and order the clutch. Call it karma but I previously looked at the video so I'd know how to do it! So you think thats where the oily issue came from? Great site here, thanks for everyones technical expertise.

Ok, she basically will spin on very light loads. Heavier, but normal loads are requiring a helping hand, ie. manualing grabbing the basket and turning it. Eventually this will work but seems to becoming less effective. I've looked at every solution/problem on this site and can't figure out which one it is. I at first suspected it was the most common problem; a worn out motor coupling. But upon pulling it and inspecting it, it appears to have zero wear on either the plastic studs or the rubber housing. So it on to the transmission, clutch, basket drive, or tub drive block (according to site info). What other things can I do to trouble shoot this problem? Damn transmmission is expensive and the basket drive isn't cheap either. Hope you guys can "lighten" my worries . . . Thanks.


Upon closer inspection, I've notice evidence of an oily substance (trans.fluid?) being spun off by the metal clutch disk. It's on all surrounding areas. It appears to be old and is not real heavy, however it is definately there. Possibly related? Thanks again.

Much appreciation to all who have replied. I'll be taking a stab at testing the TSC when my schedule allows. Looks like that part, if needed, is a special order and might take a while to get but at least I'm able to pseudo wash clothes for now.

10-4. So It sounds to this novice (me) that a new circuit board is in order?

DMM? Not exactly sure what that is but I'm guessing its some sort of manuf. manual. Unfortunately, I don't have anything.
