ETW4300SQ0 Estate top load washer does not spin
« on: December 10, 2011, 09:32:59 AM »
Working on a Estate washer, model ETW4300SQ0.
The motor runs, but it will not spin.

Coupling did not look all to bad, but I replaced it anyway.

What should I look for next?

Since you know the coupler is good, check the transmission.  Put it in spin and see if the the clutch is spinning.  If it is, you know the transmission is good.   Try spinning the wash basket by hand while in spin.  If it's hard to turn, you have a sock stuck between the basket and tub.  If it's easy to spin by hand, you have a bad clutch.

I replaced the clutch and it spins great now! Thanks tgoods.  O0

Is this a common problem, the clutch?

clutch bad wear out after time, or transmission leaks from top seal causing clutch to slip.
