After watching some on-line vids, I determined it was the center post, or tub, gasket at the bottom. A cheap part, and easy to snap-out the old and snap-in the new - But - I had to dissassemble the washer into individual washer component molecules. Luckily, I'd done this recently to replace the clutch drive, then the motor, then this. Not too bad, really. Washer body off (2 screws and two snap-links); agitator out (7/16" socket on extension); bang off tub nut (heavy hammer and punch); bang off drive block (hammer again); and pull tub up an out. Tub drain disconnected (pliers); pull off level sensing tube; three spring mounts (nutdriver); then just yank tub up. Poke out Centerpost gasket; snap in a new one; reassemble. Piece of cake.

After a little research on line, I knew to remove the fabric softener cup, pull out the clear plastic divider, unscrew the agitator bolt, pop off the construction clips, slide a plate down a bit, remove the old cogs, put in the new, return all the pieces to their places, screw the bolt back in place and now it works perfectly. I also bought a cabinet clip, spacer & screw that I will use at a later date. This repair went quickly and easily.

removed and replaced the lid switch. Unfortunately the new lid switch only lasted a few days until it broke. The part that the lid contacts came out of the lid switch.

Upper Agitator Not Agitating

From the central column, pull off the fabric softener dispenser (of course, with the machine off). Reach in and pull out the seal (looks like a diaphram). Using a socket, undo the bolt and pull out the plastic ratchet assembly. I found the 4 dogs in bad condition, ordered them, and received them in a couple days. Replace the old dogs and reassemble. Only the bolt requires a tool. Much simpler and cheaper than I had anticipated.
