You can easily remove the innards of the clutch with a pair of pliers and clean the clutch surfaces up with brake cleaner. Then replace the tranny cover seal. Remove the cover and knock the old seal out then install a new seal using a little lubricant and a wooden block to keep from marring the new seal. Click on pic to enlarge. Compress the spring on the clutch liner and lift it straight out the clutch.

Glad you got it fixed. I still don't see how a bad clutch would keep the washer from agitating.

Even with the clutch complete removed from the washer it should still agitate.

Anyway, thanks for the update.  O0
