If it agitates and drains. leaving your clothes clean but soaking wet. It is most likely the transmission/gearbox. the motor is working otherwise it would not agitate. it is stuck in agitate mode and cannot "shift" into spin mode. new transmission will cost 140-170 and takes 2 or so hours to replace depending on skill level. total repair cost parts+labor $300ish you may want to ante up for a new machine at this point. if you cant to the labor yourself.
part# should be this: tho double check using your own model#
Part # AP3096209

The agitator dogs may be broken or the transmission could be bad. Try checking the agitator dogs first. They are an easy and inexpensive fix.

You have a bad selector switch. It's the one that you use to set the size of the wash load. It turns the water valve on and allows the machine to fill to the level of water you have selected. When it goes bad, it will not open to tell the water valve to turn off once the water level has been reached that you have selected. This is why it's over flowing. You can change the switch with little effort. What you will need to do is take the plastic covers off of each end of the console. To remove, pull forward on the top to un-clip. Once you have removed both end caps, take the screw out of each end that you will see once the covers are removed. Now pull the whole panel toward you and lift it up. It will pivot over the back of the machine. Now you will see the back of the console where you can remove the bad switch. You can find the switch anywhere that sales appliance parts. One on the web is www.partselect.com I have found that they have the best price on most parts. Just enter you complete model number and it will bring up a blow up of your machine where you will be able to find the part and also order it with a credit card. Good luck and have a great day.
