All that looks ok to me now get the clutch off the tranny and remove the cover and take a look at that drive gear
May the hinges of our friendship
        never grow rusty.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL

Take a look at the spin pawl, if it seems smashed down then it is not catching the spin boss on the underside of the main drive gear. Their are 3 spin bosses. When the washer does a brief pause after pump out the spin pawl is repositioned by cent force. When the spin resumes moments later the spin pawl catches one of them bosses and the clutch gets engaged.

Think I'm going to have to pass from here on it. The spin pawl is in good condition as are the bosses, the drive gear is clean and there is no play there. That agitator shaft has even more play in it once that cover is off. I think at this point I'm just going to have someone come in, I got a feeling that the entire tranny is shot. What do you think?

Might be. Do you have an appliance boneyard near you? maybe you could get a used tranny.

... but it never spun. I reached in and turned the agitator by hand one turn, closed the lid and it started to spin normally
next time, after Drain, open the Lid for a few seconds (without turning the Agitator), then close the Lid  ...
Will it then Spin ?
bad Timer ?
