Ok does the unit spin if set

Customer:

Appliance Guru :

Yes you have a clutch solenoid issue, very common on this unit. This is a bit of a job to do and has been a huge problem on that machine

Customer:

i cleaned the clutch and regreased the bearing does that help

It can, but the solenoid may be bad

If that does not engage or is burned out then the unit will stall and not continue nor spin
