I put things back together. Washer did not spin. Took apart stator and put back together. Did not spin. Then did it again but used a screw driver to force movement in stator. That apparently solved the problem.
Anyone reading this please note that there is no need to remove the stator and its 200 lb spring to replace the spin bearing / tub seal. If you do I found the trick to getting the stator back on is to use two 1" long screws with the same threads as the 8 that hold the stator on with to drive it down until the other screws can engage. then bakc out your long screws and put in the correct length screws. Then make shure the the brake moves. It has at least 1/8" movement. I pried under stator lip to center of brake with a curved pair of heavy duty "needle nose" pliers. This also allowed me to get the pulley (pliers reaching between spokes of pulley) and the E-clip back on.
