my washer will not agitate the clothies and when it trys it makes a grinding noise.
Answer Patrick, You may have a damaged agitator "dog" system, If you can turn the agitator auger assembly in both directions, you'll need to replace the agitator. If the agitator checks OK, your issue could be in the transmission 35-6615 or more likely a thrust bearing issue
