    I have a 17 year kitchenaid top load washing machine and the agitator is not working
    I have a kitchenaid washing machine and the bottom portion of the agitator only turns briskly in one direction in the normal cycle. The agitator won't wig wag and it makes aloud thumping noise.The clothes get all wrapped up tight around the agitator as a result.The only cycle that it agitates properly is in the delicate cycle.
