Took the agitator off, but couldn't get the spanner nut off-parts list shows a special tool is needed. Didn't see any socks/rags down the sides between the basket and outer tub...possibly something underneath between them? Hooked the lid switch back up, and ran through a cycle. Motor, pump, agitation, spin cycle....all worked fine. I happened to have some wet clothes lying around. Tossed in 5 tshirts and two pants-that stopped the spinning. Took clothes out, tried the spin cycle again...but basket wouldn't turn, it will spin freely with my help. I guess the agitation and spinning have nothing to do with one another. I f wet clothes stopped it from spinning, would think the weight of the water would affect the agitation-but it didn't. Can I get the spanner nut with something else, or do I need the special tool?
