On my top-loading, GE, WCSR2080B2WW, the tub does not spin on the spin cycle. It seems to agitate fine. When I inspect the drive system as the washer is going, the retainer clip spins, and I can see that the rod that goes through the clutch is spinning, but the belt and clutch body themselves do not spin. I've replaced the V-belt, but the didn't fix the issue. With the unit unplugged, I can spin the clutch by turning the retainer clip by hand. Am I looking at replacing the clutch, or might it be something else? Thanks!
This issue does sound like it would be caused by a faulty clutch on the unit with the motor shaft turning but the clutch not. The part number for the clutch is WH5X256.
When it's in wash cycle the agaitator don't move makes little noise would it be clutch or transmission.

How do you remove the clutch from the shaft on the washer (ap2045377)? Is it pressed on ?
Answer Hello Tommy. No, you unsnap the clip from the clutch and then it pulls off the shaft.
How do you remove the drive belt from the 2 pulleys it runs on? I ask this because I need to replace the clutch, but I can't get to that until the belt is off.
To remove belt you will first unplug unit and take front panel off unit. Loosen the four 3/8" nuts on the bottom of the motor and move motor towards the center to remove belt. Rotate the transmission to give motor clearance. Rotate motor back and pull out. Reverse procedure to install.
My washer doesn't spin all the water out of the clothes. I tightened the belt and it worked for a while but now it is doing the same and the belt seems to be tight enough.
Answer Tony, Based on your post, yes the clutch WH5X256 and belt WH1X2026 are the likely issue. But make sure the drain pump is removing all the water in the tub, and there are no small articles stuck between the tubs, first.
My washer does not spin. The motor looks running. But clutch assembly and motor does not strongly attached. The clutch assembly so loosely connected to the motor. Is it OK?
Answer Joon, The clutch assembly could seem loose, especially in a static, non run situation, but it should not "wobble" on the motor shaft. The clutch pads engage the the cluch housing, which turns the belt, based on the motor rpm, You could have a "slipping" clutch WH5X256 and or a worn belt WH1X2026 which could be the issue with a poor or no spin situation in your washer.
