Question about Washing Machines
Sounds like the motor coupling is bad- it keep the motor and transmission safe when overloaded and its cheap, if the motor is making noise that's the place I'd start. After that it's the motor (make sure it has power when it should) or the transmission- both not cheap.

When it is not a direct drive it will be the carbon brushes in your motor which are gone.
This will explain the drain in power.

Agitator's don't spin on wash cycle.
I would suggest washing the clothes without soap until they rinse clear. If you have hard water, the soap will not easily rinse out of clothes, or off of you when you use soap to wash or shower.
Reduce the amount of soap you use in each wash if this is the case. It sounds like your washing machine is working right.

i also had the same problem, and it ended up being the coupler. It was not hard to replace, it cost me about 19.00. I didn't follow full recomende instructions. I tipped the washer backwards. Removed the drain pump and the motor itself. Then I removed the old coupling and placed the new one. The washer is working like new...
