I looked up the cost of parts for your washer by entering the model number in the 'Diagrams & Parts' search box on the left side of our website.

Here is a link to the Clutch for your washer.

Here is a Video that will show you how to replace the clutch.

As for how to tell if it's bad I often remove the cabinet, jump out the lid switch. Then I put the washer into the spin cycle and watch the clutch to see how it looks when it's spinning. Sometimes you can also see that the clutch has been getting greasing and slipping or just plain wore out.
Hope you find our website helpful.

I have opened her up and there is a quarter inch of water in the bottom of the tub.  Does this tell me anything about my problems?

Help please! I took things apart. Removed the pump checked for ubstructions. Took off motor. Couplings looked good but I replaced with new parts anyway. Put back together. She is agitating but not spinning. The motor runs during spin but the basket does not move. What should I try next? I have a new clutch, and will probably try that next. When I took apart I broke the door switch. I have rigged the switch to stay depressed. I don't know if that's part of my problem.
Any help would be appreciated!!

Tilt the washer back, put it into spin and look at the clutch. Does it spin? If it does your transmission is okay.  If not, it's a transmission problem, probably the neutral kit 388253. If the clutch is spinning, set the washer back down on its feet.  While in spin, manually give the basket a spin counter-clockwise.  If it is very hard to spin by hand, you have something stuck between the basket and tub.  If it is very easy to spin by hand, the clutch is bad.

I tried to take out the agitator to get to the clutch etc.  I removed the dust cap, bolt, agitator.  I removed a plastic part and a piece of metal.  I am stuck do I need a special tool to break it down further?  I don't think the shaft will slip out at this point.

You need to remove the transmission to replace the clutch.
