    Default Clothes wrap around agitator

    Just got one in
    Maytag Centennial electronic model. Sorry no model number right now.
    This one I think has more shifter and rotor position sensor.
    Complaint is the clothes get wrapped around the agitator.
    Drum spinning during agitation?
    Normally I would think granny. Any chance it may be something else not engaging the brake?

    Agitator only going in one direction, spinning while agitating, overloading....

    Sorry no model number right now.

    Sorry Jeff, will post the model number tomorrow. I was hoping "Maytag centennial.." would be enough.

    Tried it with 6 pairs of jeans today. Seemed to do fine.
    Maybe someone had been overloading.
    Then again, it may be an intermittent problem.
    Is 6 pairs of adult jeans a pretty good load?
    All I have to go by on that is what my wife says.

    The newer low water wash washer

    Manual says tangling is from poor loading.

    I would say so yes....we use towels to tests the washers in the shop.

    LOL...I understand that!!!!

    Then again, it may be an intermittent problem.
    Always possible, I try several times and if it doesn't happen, I wouldn't think it was intermittent.

    There have been a few times I have to ask her "Is this normal" When running some washers.
    Some of the pause cycles would throw me off if 'pause' was not on the timer.
    There was a time I could not spell tech. Today I are one!

    Update: Before deciding this machine was good to go, I decided to run it eith the same load but with more water in it, since it seemed to be indexing a little too much. I ran it full of water thinking the extra weight might make it act up.
    The indexing seemed to have gotten worse, and the jeans did tend to get wrapped around the agitator.
    I figure a bad tranny. The agitator action seems okay. But as the basket turn about 4 to 6 inches maybe more clockwise as the agitator would make the counter clockwise motion.
    Tranny or too much water for that machine with 6 pair of jeans.
    I sent word that I think the tranny is bad.

    Less water = less surface area for the agitator to push the water against the wash basket.
    More water = more surface area for the agitator to push the water against the wash basket.

    Maybe try the more water with more clothing and see what happens.
