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

Unfortunately your issue means that your actuator below the tub isn't shifting properly. This is the part that shifts the transmission into agitate or spin. Either way, the actuator will need to be replaced so below is a link to the part as well as a video that shows you how to replace the part at the bottom of the link.
