if you check the agitator and all around the tub inside the problem may lie in the tub cover at the top of the tub. # XXXXX or 9 in this diagram. sometimes clothes will ride up and get caught on one of these parts, check them and let me know. thanks Bryan, <img id="diagram" src="" alt="" width="704" height="885" />

I don't see any problem with the 3 parts but tub does have a lot of movement to it

how do you mean movement? this could be the spanner nut is loose. Part 437248this holds the inner tub tight, its under the agitator, you need a spanner wrench to thighten this if its loose, Part 1590
