Guys!
I DID IT!!!
I put it in the gearcase and it is agitating like crazy...and filling and draining but I must have done something wrong because now it is no longer spinning, and it was before I started.
I was proud of myself for all of 5 minutes.  I followed the video EXACTLY (or so I thought).  What did I do wrong? 
Thanks,
Macka

Hello again,
My washer is  no longer spinning, although it was before I replaced the gearcase.

All other cycles seem to be working appropriately.

So far have replaced the entire gearcase and the dogs and all the upper agitator washers and bolt.

I looked at a few other forum threads and they seem to think a faulty coupler will keep it from spinning, but the new gearcase came with a new coupler and also a new retainer or lock washer, (it's flat, it's u-shaped and it snaps around the shaft above the clutch -sorry, don't know it's actual name) so both of those parts were replaced also.

Is there a next step?
