Our top loader Kenmore washing machine is all out of whack – at first it was reluctant to spin, if we moved the tub manually we could hear a click from under the tub and then the machine would spin properly.  Now, the agitator starts immediately (even before there’s water in the tub) and the water seems to run whenever and however much it wants to – the machine pumps water our properly, but then it adds water during the spin cycle so that there’s ~ 1/2 tub left at the end of the cycle.  just today, the water didn’t stop when the tub was full (the washer was only set to do a 1/2 load) and if my wife hadn’t shut the water off at the wall it would have over flowed is there any hope?
