Are you saying the washer is leaking or that it's not agitating?

Agitating refers to the back and forth motion of that thing in the middle of your washer tub.  If it ain't doing that after it fills, then you may have:

1. bad pressure switch,

2. bad coupler,

3. bad motor.

Determining which is the exact problem will require some invasive prosecures, and maybe the use of a multimeter.  Are you ready to rock?  :rocker:

Ok!  First, let's nail down your symptoms. 

When the washer should be agitating, do you hear any noise like it should be doing something but it ain't --OR-- does the washer just go dead?

I'm not sure what you're saying here.:grr: Your first sentence isn't a complete one. Maybe a forum isn't the best venue for you to get help since it relies exlusively on clear written communication. Read my previous post again and answer my simple and clear question with an equally clear answer.

And post your model number.
