Question about KitchenAid KAWS850L Top Load Washer
Hello. I believe the two problems are related. Sounds like your agitator is not assembled correctly. It should not have things getting stuck constantly and it should definitely NOT be so easy to remove. Feel around the bottom edge of your agitator. If there is more than a 1/8 - 1/4 inch gap (roughly), it's not being snapped all the way down. Take a towel and fold it to where it is nice and fluffy. Lay it over the top of the cone part of your agitator. Get a hammer and hammer over the towel (as not to damage the agitator top). A rubber mallet could also be used. Tap firmly until you hear a click or until the gap between the agitator and wash tub reach 1/4 -1/8 of an inch. This should solve the problem.

If your washer is indeed a WFL2066, than the not spinning is directly related to the unit not draining.
These machines by design cannot spin if the drain is inadequate.
Here is the first step in resolving the problem, you need to access the drain pump/filter to clean it.
To reach the filter and clean it
1) Open the small square plastic door at the right bottom of the washer.
2) Via the small hose drain any access water from the pump...this is where a wet/dry shop-vac comes in handy, or a shallow pan with a few towels works as well.
3) Then turn the pump insert/button trap counter clock-wise and pull out. Clean the trap out thoroughly running it under hot water and mild soap or your washer detergent and inspect inside the pump for any other foreign objects/obstructions.
4) Re-install the lint trap insuring it is good and snug/tight.
before closing up the small access door by run a short rinse spin cycle to check for leaks
But on the cloth wrap around the agitator first of all put of all form of power connected to the washer (SAFETY FIRST)then carefully open the door then remove the cloth one after the other carefully
Thank you and thanks for using fixya.
