The washer's problem is specific to the wash cycle.  Other cycles work just fine.

  • I set the washer to Rapid Wash & press start button.
  • Washer fills with water.
  • Agitation cycle starts.
  • Motor hums softly rather than the normal agitation sounds.
  • I open the lid and observe the agitator spinning in sync with the basket.
  • The the agitator and basket brake to a stop.
  • Clothes are wrapped around the agitator.
  • I close the lid and press start again.
  • Washer drains okay.
  • Remaining rinse, spin, etc. cycles complete normally.
I'm familiar with the older style agitator, where you unscrew the knob on top and remove the agitator.  How to open and inspect this washer remains a mystery to me.

Also, I opened the fabric softener dispenser and found mold, lots of mold.  Help!

Thanks in advance for your help!

Bob

Thanks for the answer to my problem! :D

I ordered the part via your link.

When the part arrives, I plan to install it.  Do you have suggestions for me regarding a repair manual or web site?

I'm good with a wrench but have no specialized tools.

just did one of these today,the u-joint is quite simple to install-be sure to read the direction anyway though- centre dome pops off by depressing the small tabs that you can see through the side while applying an upward pressure- shoult us a spanner wrench on tub lock nut,but if you tap it off w/a chisel or driver,be careful as nut is quite brittle- otherwise,all that is req'd are a couple screwdrivers, a 3/8 socket/ratchet,some w.d.40 and some rags. if clothes were getting caught under washplate,will also require replacement as they become distorted from the failed u-joint. simple machines to service,but REAL moneypit- expect more failures in the future(pump,watervalve log,possible control board(s))- should i go on?????
