    whirlpool wtw4800xq0 The agitator fins at the bottom of the agitator is snagging clothes and as a result the clothes wrap around the agitator and and then of course the load is unbalanced when the spin starts. The picture I've added is not the actual agitator but I pointed out where these fins are. I'm contacting Whirlpool about this but I've not seen any info about it anywhere. Can't believe I'm the only person that has this problem.

    First check for nicks etc on the fins.

    Next check that the dos are working correctly in the agitator, just Google "whirlpool agitator" and look at a couple youtube videos.

    Thank you very much. The fins appear to be very smooth, no nicks by visual and tactile inspection. The dogs are working as they should, the top of the agitator only spins one way.
