The pause directly after agitation has nothing to do with neutral drain. That pause is to allow the motor to stop before starting again in the opposite direction. Then it should drain without spin for a minute or two and then pause again. The second pause is to allow the neutral drain to release. Then it will start again spinning and draining. If the pause after drain does not release neutral drain then there's likely something wrong with the neutral drain mechanism in the gearcase. You can rule out the clutch by observing the clutch hub during drain and spin. You must remove the cabinet, bypass the lid switch and observe the clutch hub. During the initial drain period directly after agitate, the clutch hub does not rotate. After the motor pauses and starts again, the clutch hub should be rotating. If it is and the basket is not spinning, then the clutch is slipping.
