I have a washer that spins poorly or not at all - doesnt get clothes near dry. I am attempting to check the coupling, drive block, clutch and transmission. In FAQ's on this site, I found the advice to remove the cabinet (done), jumper the lid switch, and check various components while the tub is spinning. How do I safely jumper the lid switch? There are 3 wires - white, brown, and green/yellow striped.

Thanks!

I just tipped the machine up and noticed that a bit of oil dripped onto the floor - does this mean I need a new transmission?

white and brown with a piece of wire with only the ends bared. BE CAREFUL , this is 120 volts.      Sounds like you will need a new trans. sooner or later. Clean up the oil and keep an eye on it , may stay a small drip and last a long time yet. Oil in the clutch would cause a poor spin.

Can the clutch be cleaned up to see if the machine will spin better? Or would you recommend replacing the clutch (and transmission??). The machine is to the point of not being particularly functional - needs multiple spin cycles and still ends up with wet clothes causing the dryer to run extra long.

I have always replaced , but I hear brake cleaner and a little emery cloth may work.

Sounds like replacement is my best bet and since I've got it mostly apart I might as well keep going. Transmission and clutch run about $180 on this site - could I find them cheaper somewhere? eBay? I also cant find step by step instructions for replacing these parts - are they pretty straight forward or can you point me to the repair guide on this site? Thanks.

Next step - I removed the transmission and cleaned up the clutch. There was oil on the frame and legs, and some fine dust/dirt in the clutch assembly. Is this further evidence that these parts need to be replaced? I reassembled the whole thing and the spin is still between lazy and nothing at all. I looked up parts and find both a clutch assembly (~$35) and a band and lining kit (~$25). Which of these do I need - in addition to a new transmission?

Thanks!

Use Whirlpool part 8299642 instead of the regular replacement clutch. It has 6 pads instead of 3 and performs better.

I would not replace the trans, a little oil isn't that unusual.

It's an assembly, you get the whole clutch.

on the inside of the cabinet about 2/3rds of the way down is there a line of oil that got slung off the clutch? if so i would changed the gearcase too because the new clutch will just get oil soaked again.
