Put the clutch back together on the transmission. Mount the transmission back to the machine. And anything else you've taken put back on the machine except for the cabinet. Then take a jumper wire and jump out the lid switch on the machine not the cabinet. In order to jump out the lid switch you will need a 5" wire thats stripped on both ends and run it to the two outside parts of the harness, the middle hole is just a ground. Plug the machine back in with the lid switch jumped ans start the machine with it in the spin cycle. If the tub is not spinning then push the timer back in and stop it. Take a flat head scew driver, put it in between the transmission and the clutch and pry up on the clutch lifting it. Pull the timer back out with it in spin cycle. And if it spins for a few seconds then stops, then you have a bad clutch.
