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

Please explain what you are seeing exactly? Does it only skip going one direction? etc... Does the bottom skip as well as the top part or just the top part?

I don't know, it is in my sons house. Only comment is that the agitator skip. Could be both.

OK well most likely you just have stripped out agitator dogs and they need to be replaced---common maintenance for this unit. Below is a link to the kit you'd need to replace as well as a video that shows you how to replace it.
