The washing machine tore up a pair of sneakers and a towel. I decided to watch it during a cycle. During the drain/spin cycle. The agitator spins incredibly fast, but the tub does not spin. What causes this issue?

Hi,

It sounds like your inner tub broke off from the spin support hub, I ran into this problem myself a few weeks ago.

One other thing you can check if the transmission is not turning the inner tub, if you possibly have an item of clothing stuck in between the inner and outer tubs, and that will also cause it not to spin.

You can pull the inner tub and and check to see, the hub nut is reverse thread.:)

Here's the spanner tool:
