The machine operates normally except for no spin.  it fills, agitates and pumps out.  when the lid is closed the motor runs, but the basket does not spin. motor stops when lid is open. seems lid switch is ok.  when i poked around underneath, the clutch assembly was very hot. no obvious evidence other than that.  what do you think?

is the clutch disk spinning?

if so most likely is a stripped out drive block. remove the agitator to inspect

If the clutch assy. was VERY HOT you may need a new clutch. Had one last week - took out and cleaned and it worked. And boy was it hot after only a minute of running.As far as I know it is still working so it will be the first one I cleaned that worked for long..

Grey One, if you ever feel inclined to clean another one why don't you throw a #10 washer in one of the spring cups too, this will shim up the clutch spring to compensate for worn clutch lining and make a fix last lot longer and make for a much nicer spin.

I've done this many times when someone wants to get by cheap and have never had a problem.

Edit June 16, 2009: The above originally said to use a #8 washer, that was wrong, it should be a #10, washer.  The #10 washer is the exact size of the spring cup so the spring sits squarely on the washer instead of maybe half on and half off with the #8 washer.

drive block ok.  clutch assembly and brake look ok, but i'm not 100% since i have not been in this before.   could there be something restricting the basket from turning, which could account for the no spin and the clutch heat?

better late than never.

yes, something else could cause this prob in this machine and its not a sock.  the plastic tube which delivers bleach and/or fabric softener to the tub can (and did!) break off and lodge itself between the basket and the outer tub. this apparently caused the clutch to slip over a period of time and eventually wear enough so the basket would not spin.

i removed the broken bit, and did willie's  #8 washer trick in each spring cup, cleaned and reassembled.

three weeks later, still running like new.

thanks for the help, esp willie for the cute washer trick.
