Thanks for the video.

The retainer is removed. Still won't come off.
I didn't want to pry on it and break something.

It should come right off. Another thang you can look at is the main drive gear:

May the hinges of our friendship
        never grow rusty.

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

I see in the video there are 2 clips in there. I only removed one. Got it off as an assembly now.

I would inspect that main drive gear before buying a clutch.

Main drive gear looks fine.
I guess I will start with a clutch replacement and go from there. It is just a matter of minutes to disassemble and assemble the washer, so if there is something else wrong it won't take long to take it back apart.

Ok, just got the clutch drum off.

Inspected main drive gear, looks good.

Spun coupler in both directions:
CCW ,the shaft rotated back and forth like it is in agitate.
CW, clutch spins.

Drive block appears to be in good condition as well.

So, got a new clutch for it and it still doesn't work. Guess I will tear into the transmission. I inspected the drive gear and the components under it, all looked good to me. Something is still wrong, won't spin and hardly agitates.
