Washer would not always spin during spin cycle - motor would run, but no spin

I washed the Youtube videos from Partselect website and read the comments from others which provided significant help in approaching the repair. However, I didn't follow the video precisely. There is no need to remove the control panel nor the front housing. All you need to do is tip the washer on it's back, remove the nut from the agitator & remove the agitator assembly (careful, there is a plastic piece and a clip that goes over the shaft, remove that too), remove the pump, remove the bolts for the motor housing and remove the entire motor/shaft assembly. Now you can replace the clutch and direct drive motor coupling, etc. My problem was with the clutch, but for an extra $13, I replaced the direct drive motor coupling as well. My first time took me about a hour, but could do it again in less than 30 minutes. Outstanding help/support provided by the Partselect website. All were very happy the washer was fixed and I we probably saved a few hundred dollars by doing it myself.

The washing machine started smoking and stopped agitating.

I followed the you tube video provided when I ordered the parts. It was all I needed to make the repair. It was simple. It saved me the cost of a new washing machine. I would highly recommend it. In fact I am ready to order more parts to fix a Kitchen aid mixer.

The washer was slow would not go into the spin cycle..

All I had to do was follow the instructions on your web site and it was pretty easy.. The only reason it took so long was because my washer is in a spot hard to get to... I had to remove the dryer to get to the washer and then take it out of the laundry room to work on it. Other than the time it took to do that the actual repair only took 40 minutes. Your video of the repair was excellent... Thanks so much.. Saved at least $500 by replacing the clutch...

I can hear the motor spinning, but the tub does not spin

Following this websites directions, I removed the body and agitator, layed the machine down, removed the pump, motor and gearcase and replaced the clutch assembly. I reinstalled everything but the problem was not fixed. I have since taken the machine apart again, this time taking the gearcase itself apart and found a broken part in there (the small screw from the nuetral drain assembly kit part#PS349777). I can not find the screw seperately, so I have ordered the rebuild kit and will try that when it comes in.

Washer would agitate, but not spin the water out of the clothes.

It suprised me how much water came out of the machine when I tipped the machine on it's back. I needed a short pan or bowl to catch the water. The hardest part was installing that c-shaped spring.

Washer doesn't spin

The hardest part was figuring out what the problem was. The washer wouldn't spin so the clothes were really wet at the end of the cycle.
First I removed the agitator, because a screw connects the agitator to the shaft.
Next I put the washer on it's front.
Disconnected the water pump clips and pulled it off the motor shaft.
Electrically disconnected the motor (make sure you unplug the washer before starting)
Removed 3 bolts holding the gear case and motor.
Then I pulled the gear case and motor out the bottom, the shaft is about two feet long and the clutch comes with it.
Replace the clutch and put the shaft back where it belongs. Make sure the clutch spring doesn't bump against the plastic brake thing, it will stop you from pushing the shaft all the way in.
Pushing the gear case and motor assy the last inch and aligning the holes for the bolts was the hardest part. The bolts aren't long enough to grab the threaded hole, so you have to get it perfectly aligned. After about a half-hour of fighting it, I finally used a hammer and lightly tapped it into place.
Just put everything back together in the reverse order.
