Won't spin and tub is locked while agitator is loose
« on: December 05, 2009, 12:14:11 PM »
Hi.  Our washing machine won't spin and the tub is locked.  The agitator is loose.  What do you think might be the problem?  The washer is only 5 years old.  Thanks in advance for any help.  

Model LSR8010PQ0
