Update: I figured it could only be two things thats causing my issue, either the worm gear is jumping teeth or the agitator is slipping on the splines. I tore it apart to find neither. The tranny seemed fine with no visable wear or skipping. The agitator did show a little wear so i replaced it. Put back together to have the same problem. Grr! After looking closely it looks as if the shaft moves under stress which im sure it shouldnt and is probably slipping the teeth but didnt show the wear because it just started. I hate to say it but if i cant a different plan of attack its off to the dumps.
