Washer has trouble agitating... Check the agitator dogs inside the top of the agitator, they are bad for wearing out, sometimes the agitator may only agitate one way when the dogs are worn out. This is an instruction sheet that came with the last parts I ordered for a Whirlpool/Inglis style direct drive washer agitator. If you need to replace your agitator dogs, please see this link for some repair aid.
Here is the fix for the problem,Ifyou get stuck ,let me know
Got this one foryou ,Hope it get you going
