Today I worked on one of these. It was spinning just as you describe. The clutch band pads were thin as razor blades and had jumped partially out of the clutch housing. I replaced the clutch band and put er back. She runs fine now. Took some pix:

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
