DRAT!! I don't know how much longer I can stay focused on this.
I got it all together, even put connectors on those wires from the harness and the motor. Plugged it in and it spins on the spin cycle but that is all. I find no movement in the wash cycle.
O wait!! It just occurred to me, it would not agitate if there is no water in the tub, would it?

One other thing before I go...When it spins there is a "squeek squeek squeek...etc". I think I saw in a video that this is from an improperly seated seal?

Well, I let it fill with water and the agitate did not work. I here the motor running but there is no movement. Thats bad!!!  :tickedoff:
I think thats about what it did before I "fixed" it except that before it DID have a broken gear. So, is there something I could have misassembled that would allow the motor to run without moving the agitator? clutch? Would those 2 wires coming from the motor do it if they were mixed up?  :'(
