I have a friend that’s got a Amana NTW4650YQO that will not spin. I purchased a shift actuator and installed it and it still won’t spin. When you press the start button it will lock and fill water, wash and drain but will not spin. All help is appreciated.

Good Morning and thanks for posting! 

I have a couple things that you can check - 

The drive belt - Inspect the drive belt to determine if it is broken or if it is loose on the pulleys. If the drive belt is broken or loose, replace it.

The clutch assembly - located next to the shift actuator - This makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It helps the tub to gradually get up to the proper spin speed. If the clutch is worn out, it may prevent the tub from spinning. The clutch is not repairable—if the clutch is worn out, replace it.

I would also check the door striker to make sure its not damaged and that its making good contact with the door lock when the door is closed. 

If there's anything else we can assist with, please just let us know!

I know the lid switch is made and it locks. The belt is good because I looked at it when I put the shift actuator on. Any other things that I could check and how would you check the clutch.

A way to check the clutch is to take it out and use your hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside. If its very easy, it's worn. It should be hard to push by hand.
