I bought, and installed a new clutch assy. in the washer. Now it won't spin or agitate. Had it apart a couple of time to make sure it was assembled correctly. It will fill with water and pump out. Any idea what I did wrong?

Check the coupler between motor and gearcase.

It looks to me like a direct drive for both the pump and the trans.. Would I be able to see the coupler if there was one?

There is a coupler between the motor shaft and gearcase input shaft. You must remove the motor to be able to check it's condition. If the coupler fails, it won't agitate or spin but will still pump the water out which is the condition you describe. Coupler is #13 in the diagram.

Thanks Eric, that was it, a broken coupling.
