is this a top loader??there are clips on the edges of the top..they require use of a regular screw driver(flat blade) inserted between the top and sides..them it should pry up and tilt to the back..on hinges..
the first thing to check is your lid switch.
does the unit drain or spin?
you may need to check your drain pump to see if anything is stopping it.
you should also check the wiring from the motor to the timer.
without knowing more details, and considering it's age , my guess is that you have a disconnection (or a loose wire) to the solenoids under the tub. these solenoids activate the clutch system that pulls it into agitate and spin modes. it might be the solenoids, but rarely do both go out at the same time. it might be the timer contacts or connections behind the control panel. or, it might be the timer its self.
try unplugging the unit and check all the connections.
hope this helps jay
Under the agitator there is a rachet mechanism that works the agitator. If it is stripped, it will skip until the next good tooth.. when it fails entirely the agitater will stop going back and forth. Its nylon and age along with overloading hastens its dearg.. If you can get the parts you can replace it yourself without difficulty. There is a single bolt in the center of the agitator top . Remove and loft agiyator straight up.
I have a Series 80 and when I lift the lid it does not stop aggitating when in wash mode. When I lift the lid it does stop spinning when in rinse mode. As designed.
To stop wash-mode aggitation at lid-lift, using the existing lid switch and other electrical components, is not easy and not recommended. I can think of a way to do it (triple-pole lid switch) but I will not detail the idea .. for safety concerns.
To stop aggitation, simply use the main settings dial control. You'll save money and possibly prevent a fire hazard!
sounds like the water level switch is not working pop the front cover off and see if the tube on the left of the tub is still hooked up. to remove front cover use a putty knife and slide between thee top and the front cover you wil feel the knife stop about two inces from each side push in on the place where it stopped and pull out on the front cover
Rob, sounds like you need an agitator repair kit. Not a hard job, under the dispenser cap you have a set of ears, spring and plastic bearing. The kit is cheap, you can find it here http://www.repairclinic.com/0080.asp Catriver...post back
