Hi, welcome to Just Answer. Sorry to hear you are having appliance trouble, I know how frustrating that can be! My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!

From what you are experiencing, I suspect the Shift Actuator may be faulty. That is very common and causes the symptoms you are seeing. Also, check the large pulley to see that the bolt is tight and the pulley is not loose. The actuator is available below. There is a video at that same link to show how it is replaced!
