Major Appliances/won't agitate-frigidare fex831cs0


I changed the water overflow switch and the motor. I also checked the belt and cleaned the agitator. My machine still will not agitate. I can spin the drum back and forth fine. I have read online how to check to see if the transmission is bad and as far as I have read the transmission is good. There is no odor or burnt smell. It will spin and empty fine. I can not find a local technician to come out and work on my machine so please help.

When the unit fills with water and then stops filling what happens next?  IS the unit dead or does the motor run?  If it does run, what direction is the motor running?

Waiting to hear from you,
Eric and Ann Campion
