It is probably the clutch slipping instead of the transmission. However, most of the time a clutch slips, it is because the transmission has leaked oil on it. Remove the cabinet or tilt it up and look under it. If you see a line of oil about 8 inches from the bottom all the way around the cabinet, you will need a new gearcase and clutch. If the machine is less than 5 yrs old, the part will be covered under warranty.
Post back if you need further assistance in checking or repairing the washer.
