Disassembled upper agitator to ascertain cause of problem. Agitator directional cogs were worn out. Washer on agitator bolt was also worn off. Replaced those parts along with installing a new thrust spacer and everything works beautifully. Only required a standard #2 flat screwdriver to pop the cover off the agitator and a 7/16 socket on an extension to remove the agitator bolt. Quite a simple project.
