That number I gave you is indeed on the plate of this clothes washer

I have replaced the dogs in the past and had good results. The Shaft that the dogs engage is not moving. Motor runs , pump works but drum does not rotate

Ahhh ok sounds like a bad motor coupler, this is what joins the motor to the transmission. Ill include a repair video.
