I just had the same type of problem and fixed it. The door switch under the lid is not working properly. Mine wasn't working because some lint, etc. got caught around the switch wiring and as the agitator used to spin, it spun a knot around these wires. Over time, this knot started to pull on the wires and one of the wires got disconnected. So, for the time being, I "jumpered" the switch out and can operate that way. BUT, THE SPIN CYCLE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK UNTIL YOU SHUT IT OFF. IT WILL NOT SHUT OFF BY ITSELF (AUTOMATICALLY). ALSO, BE VERY CAREFUL. THE DOOR SWITCH NOW DOESN'T WORK UNTIL YOU WIRE IT BACK IN. THEREFORE, THE SPIN CYCLE WILL CONTINUE UNTIL YOU SHUT IT OFF YOURSELF (NO DOOR SWITCH IN OTHERWORDS).

Did you ever figure this out? Mine agitates but instead doesn't start spinning and draining unless I open the lid. It then "clicks" and starts but it is strange that I have to do this to get it to spin.
The clutch assembly works only to release the basket allowing it to spin during the drain and spin cycles. The drain function works only when the spin function works. If the machine also agitates during spin cycles, then the problem is in the transmission assembly not able to release the agitate gear from the agitate spline in the drive shaft.
Hi, this agitator may have stripped all of the internal gears and plastic drive adapters that allow it to preform its actions during the selected cycles. The only solution here will be to replace the agitator and drive shaft as well. you can order a complete agitator kit with all the parts as well. this will fix this issue. Please rate and god bless:)
Remove the agitator and see if the agitator shaft moves during agitate. If it moves then the agitator spline is worn or the agitator dogs are worn and the top half of the agitator will not work. If no results then the gearcase would have to be replaced
Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it.
