Hi, I have a spin problem with this machine, I have fitted a drive coupling and clutch assembly (both were worn). Still no spin, the agitator spins but the tub doesn't turn. I have noticed, however, that the basket seems to move up and down the shaft so I would assume that it is no longer connected. Do I need to replace the tub?

Ricky for Model Number 3RLSQ8033SW1

ANSWER Ricky, You shouldn't need a tub. You my need a new spin tube/basket drive W10117003 and or drive block 21366,389140. These components hold the spin basket in position and spin the basket when the washer is in the spin cycle. If you can lift the tub up and down and the tub won't spin, any one of these components could have failed or wore out. You'll need tomremove the agitator, the spanner nut and lift the tub out to check the drive tube and drive block.
