Major Appliances/problem washer agitation and drain

Question
QUESTION: I have a whirlpool washer model:LXR9200HQ1 serial: CJ3909808 Type:107 that has 2 problems:

1)when clothes are in washer (not too many)-  even when running on normal cycle, the agitation is much slower (like delicate cycle)than it used to be.

2)does not seem to drain completely. I checked to see if anything was blocking the hose or drain pump but did not see anything (did not take apart pump).

any suggestions to resolve these two issues?

ANSWER: Check you speed selector switch and make sure no one turned it on you.  Can't tell for sure but you have your timer and then the next knob to the left would be the cycle modifier.  Where is that set to?

Waiting to hear from you,

QUESTION: thank you for your response.

No one touches the machine once it is set. The only selectors available are load size (set at extra large - machine is not overly full with clothes), extra rinse (set on), and temperature (cold/cold or warm /cold used). The timer dial selects the type of wash (normal/perm press/delicate).

Someone mentioned that doggies should be replaced. Does this make sense?

thank you for your excellent service.

Answer
The agiator dogs control the top portion of the agitator....  THis would have no bearing on the drain issuue you tell me you are having.....  Are you still having a drain issue?
