Question about Washing Machines
Washer won't agitate,or spin.will fill and drain.
If the drum will not rotate at all then a Possible cause may be worn motor brushes. Simple to change if you have a electic shop nearby ask them if they stock brushes for the motor for your make and model. You should be able to obtain online as well. I replaced my Bosch brushes for around a tenner

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#

I recently had this problem. It was found that the main drive belt broke and the washer would fill but not spin, agitate or drain. I replaced the belt and everything worked again. A defective or disconnected cover switch would also cause the same problem.
