In Wash cycle I noticed the agitator does not Agitate and the motor makes a noise when it starts the wash after filling with water and then the spin cycle works fine.

Salvatore M for Model Number MAV8600AWW

ANSWER Sal, Since the washer fills, spins and drains without an issue, But the motor makes noise and doesn't run in the wash cycle. The more likely issue is a faulty timer 22003500. There may be a faulty contact in the timer causing the motor to hum, and not run in the agitate selection.
