Spin cycle would engauge for brief moments, continued to spin very slowly and loud ratcheting noise causing me to turn it off.

I installed both a new clutch and direct drive assembly, put it all back together, turned it on and had the same initial problem. I purchased and installed a new gearcase (transmission) and it runs like a new machine. I also purchased a spanner wrench made by Supco, but never had to use it. Will save it for future repairs. There is no greater satisfaction or glory than fixing something yourself! A lot cheaper too!!!

Motor coupling broken

Watch the video as provided bythis site! Really, I could have fumbled through it myself and likely would have eventually gotten it. However, after figuring out what roughly might be the problem by turning the washer over and looking at the broken coupling -watching the video defined a completely different, and much shorter repair than I likely would have put myself through. -Additions to the video are the use of a rust penetrant like liquid wrench on the coupling, a lot more prying to get the coupling off the motor shaft, and a folded up towel to absorb water when you lay the washer on it's back. For me this was a good time to clean inside the tops of the washer basket, and the surrounding tub with a longer bottle brush and some other stuff that fit the limited space. If you disconnect the drain connection from the pump at the bottom, and turn the washer upright over a floor drain, you can rinse/scrub the space all you want. If hadn't watched a different related video, I probably would have attempted to remove the tub, but you need a tool that I don't have. -big time saver!

The machine stopped agitating and spinning

The shredded rubber under the machine pointed to a drive coupling failure. Unscrew the control panel and type it back. Undo the body clips on either side and tip forward and remove the body..... At least on this model. Lay the machine on it's back and remove two motor clips. Uncouple one hose so that the motor can be removed. This exposes the broken drive coupling. Remove it's remains from the motor shaft and the transmission shaft. Install the new one and reverse the steps. NO BIG DEAL. Up and running in less than one hour. Total fix cost $18.....I'll take that any day.

Washer stopped spin dry or agitation.

Watched Youtube video, was similar except screws for topside control panel were in rear. Disasemble was simple and fast. Reassemble was a little tricky as I could only get one clip back on the motor and then the other was not reaching. I had my daughter tilt the washer back so the motor wasn't hanging down and it went together. Washer now runs like new, nice to know that I only had to pay for the part and saved myself $100 bucks! Thanks!

Removed the screws under the trim on either side of the control console then rolling the console back was able to remove front of washer. Laid washer on back and was able to get to motor pump and coupling. U Tube has very good video on how to.

Tub would not spin, but pump worked.

Watch the video! - it a huge help with getting to the coupling. Actual coupling repair is straightforward, but I needed to tap it on with a deep socket. Biggest problem for me was removing and re-installing the cabinet - that's where the video comes in.

Washer making a clicking noise and not turning the tub

After watching the repair video on the website, I disconnected the water lines and power. Removed the two screws that secured the control panel, tilted the control panel back, disconnected the lid safety switch, pride out the clips that hold the housing to the back of the washer. I laid the washer on its back, removed the two clips that secure the pump and moved the pump out of the way, disconnected the electical connector from the motor, removed the the two screws from the motor clips, removed clips from the motor and removed the motor. The Direct Drive Coupling was easily accessable and easy to replace. I put it all back in reverse order. 30 minutes from start to finish.
