Question about Washing Machines
The washer agitates properly when filled with water only. When clothes are added the agitator slows considerably to the point where it is barely agitating. Is this a transmission related problem?
Many Whirlpool built 'direct drive' washers use a 2 piece agitator. There are cogs called 'dogs' or 'dog ears' and a cam between the two halves of the agitator which can wear leading to a clicking/ticking sound and reduced movement of the top agitator section during the wash cycle leading to poor cleaning results. In most cases these worn parts can be replaced without much cost or difficulty. If you have this style of washer this should help.
