Motor is ok but still giving me problems. If I start a cycle and it agitates kicks out. After it kicks out and I switch it to spin. Spins ok then I can start a cycle no problem and it will go. Still won't agitate on fast but it will go ahead and run on regular agitate. I don't know what to try next.
