Roper washer spins, but not fast

Roper washer model RAX423RQ4. I cannot find any information for this model. I triple checked the model number on the machine, it is correct.

This washer will spin and drain, but it spins very slow. It leaves clothes soaking wet. I do not own a volt meter, but I did take a look at the lid switch and it appears functional. Could this be caused by something else?

Look inside cabinet about 6 inches from floor you you may see a streak of oil. If there you need a gearcase top seal, clutch and drive coupler. lean washer back against wall to look under it.

You triple checked the model number......was that with or without your glasses

Would you believe your model number is actually RAX4232RQ4
