Not very hard at all. Remove the agitator ten remove the pump and motor. Get the tranny out. Inspect the clutch band by removing it from the housing with a pair of pliers. Squeeze the spring to release the clutch band.

does any one have a service manual for this machine? thanks guys!


Your washer is a direct drive washer manufacture by Whirlpool for Sears.
The closest thing you will find for a service manual would be this one.

if your basket is not spinning pull the ajatator and check the nut on the basket which tightens up a drive block that sits on the basket drive
