If that's the case, I'm done.  This machine is turning into a hole in the basement I throw money into.

Could the brake be sticking or causing problems?

I don't know what sitting up means.  You mean has the washer been sitting upright?  Yes.  It has also been laying on its side for days on end.  How do I check the brakes?

Slow spin phenom can cause the motor to short cycle also. Remove the agitator and then remove the basket. Lay her over and remove the tranny. Then twist the brake cam actuator and release the brake and yank out the spin tube assembly as seen in this video:

I found a used motor on ebay for $40 and another capacitor for $5.  So after $130 total and countless hours, all installed and washer is running smoothely (fingers crossed).

Thanks again for all the help.

I been pretty busy today. I cleaned up a whirlpool dryer and put a coupler on one of these washers. I have one more to fix and it is doing the same thing. Clicking. I put the motor of the other washer I put a coupling on on that washer and all it did was click so I know it is something to do with the brake. It got dark on me so I gotta wait to fix this one tomorrow. I am gonna take some pix. Purty day today. 77 degrees and sunny with a slight breeze from the south. Hope tomorrow is just as nice :)

I removed the tranny from this direct drive and have some raw live photos. The brake cam actuator was just dangling. The c clip is missing. As you can see this lever releases the brake. It sits on the base of the spin tube. It has a recessed grove and is held into the base by a simple c clip. Click pix to enlarge:

The missing clip is part number 90368. so what seems to be a junker can be fixed for less than 5 bucks

Hi guys, I'm back with the same washer.

Since I replaced the motor (with another used motor), new clutch and capacitor, it had been working great until a couple weeks ago.  Now it won't spin at all.  No clicking, no humming, just dead when it is on the "spin" setting. 

Any ideas?  I have the urge to go new at this point since the money and time I'm putting into the old one is starting to make less sense.
