Mode shifter changes the shaft and tube from spin to agitation. with the Coil energized for agitate mode 135 VDC 18sec then 30 VDC to keep it up; cam teeth disengaged from drive pulley. If the coil is de-energized for spin/idle mode; cam teeth engaged in drive pulley.

So if the coil is open the cam teeth will not disengage from the pulley the washer would not agitate ...

I have also see a weak coil..causing the cam teeth to partly engage in agitation slapping the cam on the pulley..
Check the Basics first!!! Read the Manual !!!Buy the tech a Beer!!!
