Washing Machine won't spin or agitate.

GE Washing Machine won't spin or agitate.
The motor runs and the bolt/shaft turns, but the pulley with the belt won't turn.

Here's a video:

That is an easy fix. Knock that keeper off and the old clutch drops off the motor. Install the clutch. It is easier to remove the tub. Here's Ryan:

Thanks, but a new clutch wasn't necessary.  Luckily the fix was a lot cheaper.
The roll pin had disintegrated. We put a new one in and it's spinning like a top!

Thanks!
