Question about Washing Machines
Without the model number or make, makes it pretty hard to come up with a solution, but if it's not a Whirlpool, Kitchenaid, Roper, or Kenmore direct drive top loader,
Remove the front panel and check the belt and tensioner.
Also, on occasion, water, and or possibly oil from an oil leak out of the bottom seal of the transmission can get on the belt and cause slippage.
P.S. On older Whirlpool and Kenmore washers, they did use a belt and you accessed it from a panel on the rear.
Belt might need adjusted, or in some cases the clutch simply wore out. Not a practical repair.
