If the clutch is getting hot, then it is slipping. A tab on the clutch band engages the arm on the brake cam driver which releases the brakes and turns the basket drive tube. You need to pull the gearcase and rotate the brake cam driver by hand to see if it releases the brake and freely rotates the basket. If it releases the brake but is difficult or impossible to turn the basket, there may be clothing caught between the basket and outer tub.
