Turned out to be two problems. The washer would not spin but it would drain. Secondly, it did not agitate.

After watching the videos on how to complete the repairs, I ordered the parts. That next weekend I watched the videos again and from start to finish I was done in just under 1 hour. The most difficult part was getting the cabinet back on. The total cost to me was less than $45. Sure beats $600 plus for a new washer. And the next time, I'll order the double action lubricant for the agitator from Part Select. Buying that at the local appliance center was costly.
