If you can use a lollipop stick to operate the lid switch while you leave the lid open, you will be able to observe if the agitator is going smoothly back and forth EVENLY or not. If it is tending to turn just one way....this will tangle the clothing like mad!
If this is the problem it could be the switching module or capacitor that needs replacing.

Testimonial: "i will try it thanks "
OK the trasnsinssion will be full of water and the contents are being forced past the lower oil seal during agitation. You might enwuire about a new transmission or get a new machine....not the best news but if you went for a stronger make you could own it for twenty years......no joke. www.thewashingmachineman.webs.com ask tony

It appears your clutch assembly or tub bearing has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

When I had a problem with my simpson washer, with all 3 water temp lights blinking, it was a blockage in the pump, I emptied the washer and disconnected the host to the pump underneath, then cleared out the pump and put the hose back on, problem solved.
