Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

If the unit just keeps trying to sense, it means that the actuator below the tub isn't getting into the correct position. This is the part that shifts the transmission from spin to agitate and vice versa. Below is a link to the actuator you'll want to order and replace and there is a video at the bottom of the link that shows you how to replace the part.
