Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! Are the clothes coming out twisted up in knots? Does the tub spin while it is agitating?

the washer only adjitates does not try to spin ;; it washes fine but when it tries to spin it keeps adjitating


Oh, okay, I understand now. If you put the machine to a spin cycle manually, will it spin?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no it will not try to spin the adjitator just keeps adjitating ;

Okay, and the water will not pump out, either?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes the water pump pumps out the water ;;;

Okay, so if the water pumps out, the timer is telling the motor to turn in the right direction and the motor is, so that leaves the transmission as suspect. The transmission is quite expensive and also requires replacing the center seal kit. It will not likely be economical to repair this machine. However, the transmission is available below.
