the waher works fine until it has to go to a spin cycle. during the spin cycle it will pump water out but the agitator remains engaged so it doesn't spin the tub.

You have a busted solenoid plunger that activates the tranny slide bar.

would that require pulling the motor and the transmission to replace? and is it a part I can buy.

Thanks for your help

Flop the washer on it's face, remove the access panel, and turn the tranny pulley and belt while holding the solenoid plunger ( the one nearest the tranny spindle) down. You will probably find it will not move the slide bar and you have a busted pin in the plunger. If ok, and the agitator stopps agitating, you have busted wires to that solenoid.

It is a direct drive system so there are no pulleys or belts.

Your model # is missing some letters/numbers.

Remove the outer cabinet, the pump and motor. Turn the tranny coupler clockwise and see if the agitator still moves back and forth. If so=new tranny time.
