I had this same problem. I hired a repairman, which I highly recommend you do too. He found that the tub's base was corroded. The agitator wouldn't properly spin, and that had something to do with it ability to drain properly. My clothes were coming out sopping wet. He replaced the tub (at a cost of about $450), and then washer was as good as new. He said that washers and dryers that are made now aren't made nearly as well as these oldies. He said it should be in good working order now for the next 30 years.

if it is like the other you have to remove the top cover of the agitator cap with a small flat head screwdriver, then using a 7/16" socket and ratchet with an extension remove the bolt(right hand thread) and pull up the agitator.

good luck to you.

if the tub will not agitate i would first take out the agitator, (there may be a bolt in the top holding it onto the transmission shaft), and check the top of the agitator to see if the splines are stripped. try to run the machine without the agitator on the shaft and see if it will agitate. if it is a case of the machine not spinning out the water after the wash cycle, you may have a burnt wire from the control magnet assy. at the bottom of the gearcase. there are 2 bars and 2 solenoids with 2 wires going to each one, these wires can break or burn off and the machine will not go into a spin mode. hope this helps.
