researched potential causes, found clutch dust under the washer and determined that it wouldn't engage because clutch was too worn. ordered the assembly,It was very easy to install. I also noticed oil residue on the side of the washer so after more research I found out I needed to replace the transmission also. The seal on top of the unit was worn out. I ordered a new transmission and install it and now it works like new. It's very rewarding to fix your own washer. Now all my friends are fixing their own washer and dryers. Thank You!!!
