The agitator won't move. Water will fill, but it will not drain/spin out. It is like the agitator is frozen. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks.
Either motor faulty or if mtor is running then the flexibla coupling between the gearbox and the motor is faulty.

Not sure if manifold is leaking
Leaks water...check the pump first. The fill valve and hoses may be the next step. See how to take apart info. With the use of plastic drain hoses on many machines today, this has become a common leak trouble maker. The drain hose can rub the wall or a pipe and this will rub a hole in the drain hose.
