The Agitator

A stripped agitator spline could cause the agitator to turn too slow leaving the clothes dirty. This doesn't happened too often, but could happened.

The Belts

This washer uses 2 belts. The motor to transmission belt is used to make the washer spin or agitate. The motor to pump belt is used to turn the pump to drain the water from the washer.

The age and the amount of time that you use the washer has to do with how fast the belts wear out. When the belts wear out, they tend to slip and grab the transmission pulley less ,slowing down the agitator action. The link below will show you how to remove and replace the belts.

Motor Springs & Slides

The motor is mounted on  2 metal plates that use 4 slides and 2 springs to give the belts the proper tension to agitate or spin the drum.

The metal plates mount one inside of the other and dirt sometimes prevent the springs from giving the motor the proper tension. The video on the link will show you how this repair is done.

The oil on the older transmission could get thick when the washer is located on a place that gets cold. Thick oil will cause the gears in the transmission to turn too slow to wash the clothes at the right speed to clean it.
