The typical cycle is; fills to selected water level agitates wash cycle drains wash water spins wash cycle fills to selected water level on rinse cycle agitates on rinse cycle drains rinse water spins final time end of cycle
Don't worry about that "fuzzy little belt" ;) I mean - just toss it. If the motor runs but the agitator is not agitating - check the coupling, the two plastic thingies and a piece of rubber between transmission and motor. If it will not do anything after filling up - the problem is electrical, and it can be anything from the water level switch to timer to motor... The schematic diagram is inside the control panel. To open the panel remove 2 phillips screws holding control panel's side plastic caps. The screws are in the back. Good luck! %)
If it will not spin either, you most likely have a broken drive coupler. This machine is "direct drive" and has no belt. As techs, we see this several times during our work week. Otherwise, if you have the "two piece" agitator, you may simply need new "dogs" in the agitator. if the machine spins fine, fill it only on the smallest load size with no clothes in it. When the agitate cycle starts, take note if the bottom section of the agitator is going back and forth. If it is, and the upper part does not "ratchet" then you just need to rebuild the agitator and that is an easy job.
It sounds like you need to replace your agitator dogs (yes, there is such a thing). They are small plastic pieces that are used by the upper portion of the agitator to grip as it turns. This is a common problem when they wear out. If you go to searspartsdirect.com, there's an illustration of what I'm talking about under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub Parts" heading. Item number 10 (part number 80040) is what you need to replace. Just type in your complete model number in the "Search by Model Number" block. The following link provides you with step-by-step instructions on how to do this:
Check to make sure your drain hose has a loop at least as high as washer top. If the drain hose is not looped higher than tub water will continue to drain and it won't stop filling. If it doesn'y reach the correct fill level it won't agitate.
Mustache, sounds like you have a broken lid switch. No spin, no drain usually a sign of this. Check to see if the actuator is making the lid switch, or the switch itself is bad. Part number for the switch is 8318084. Catriver, post back.
