Thanks FatMan, did not think anyone would care if I was gone or not.  :shock:  Well, some people at least.  I do feel better but not up to par.  But when you own your own business you just have to keep going like the Enigizer Bunny...........;)

Also, if the control magnet (wig-wag) was bad on the agitate side it would fill and drain and would not try to agitate. If the wire was breaking inside of the insulation, making and breaking contact, would do the "demented washer syndrone"  Agitate, drain, agitate, drain, agitate, drain.  Can not think of anything that would cause the agitator to go just to the right on a belt driven washer.  I have seen this on a DD washer. Usually if the spring inside of the transmission were broken, it would just sit there and do a "ka-tunk, ka-tunk, ka-tunk" and not move, just jerk around in the same place.

Liesel, try ckecking your wig wag and the wiring harness to it. The wire is prone to breaking (this wire moves when the motor is running). Swap the yellow and red wires,put your washer into spin cycle,no water needed,and see if your machine agitates ok. I think it will. Let me know.

Is this washer the old belt type? If the wig wag coil pins are bent are broken it will cause the tranny to lock up. the wig wag coil has four wires going to it. it is actually an electric shifter that uses solenoids to raise and lower the pins on the cam bars (shifters).  You can buy a kit with the wig wag and new pins for about 20 bucks. I have them used. Reid

I have a similar, but opposite problem with a Whirlpool belt-drive wig-wag machine (Model LA588OXKNO).  My machine agitates and drains, but will not spin.  Does one coil activate spin, and one activate agitate?  If it is a bad spin coil (solenoid), should I be able to observe it fail to raise or lower on one of the cam rails?  (Maybe the left?  I think the right one shifts, but not sure about the left.)

If not the wig-wag, will anything else cause it only to not spin?  I have bypassed the momentary switch on the lid--I think--I have shorted the circuit closed to enable spin--right?

The left side coil is for spin, the one with the red wire going to it.  If that side is bad, you will not spin, but have to replace the whole control magnet.
