I'm still looking for exact information, but I'm on to something. I don't know about your spin cycle, but I have the agitate problem, too.
I removed the fabric softener dispenser and popped-off the cover below it. There are 4 little wedges in there that appear to have gone bad. They are supposed to "grip" the agitator, rotate it partly, and let it go. They aren't gripping. They appear worn.
I'm searching for the parts.
If you are handy, I'd rate this repair on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the hardest to fix, and 1 being the easiest, a 3 due to the needed tools.
I'm working on more complete information, and will definitely share ASAP.
