kenmore washer won't spin

I have read all the forums concerning the washer not spinning and we have taken the washer apart and found the motor coupling is just fine and the cluch is tight, even checked the agetator dogs and they are a little worn but that would not keep it from spinning. The transmission does not make noise but does seem to have some grease. What else is there?

What is the model number of the washer? Does it drain ok? Is the motor running when it is in spin mode? If so, run it in spin mode with cabinet removed and lid switch bypassed. Observe the clutch hub on top of the gearcase. When in spin mode and motor is running (rotating) if the clutch hub is not spinning, the gearcase is bad.

The model number is 110 2494300, It drains ok, the motor is running when in spin mode. I can get it spin only the last spin of the permant press cycle. All the other spin cycles won't spin and can only get it to spin if I actually turn the drum a few times and then close the lid. Is the clutch hub the brake unit that sits in the motor coupling?

Sounds like you are confused as to what part is the clutch. You said it is tight but the only way to check it is to remove the gearcase. The clutch is on top of the gearcase, not near or within the motor coupler. Pull the gearcase, hold the clutch hub and try rotating the clutch band with your finger. If it rotates easily, then it's either gotten oil in it or it's worn and needs to be replaced.

Missing a number in model number.

Tilt washer back against wall and look under it. About 6 inches up around cabinet see if there is a streak of oil. If there you need a gearcase top seal, clutch and drive coupler.
