Washing Machine :/

My washing machine, which is a rather old top loader handed down from my dad, has stopped doing the spin cycle. Everything else works fine, including the agitator motions. I guess some mechanical bits are not engaging the motor properly to do the spinning, which means the clothes end up soaking wet.

If anyone here knows about washing machine repair with this specific issue, that would be great. Otherwise, I'm going to have to buy a replacement.

If I have to buy a replacement, I'd consider a front loader. Apparently they are more efficient and gentler on clothes. There are downsides as well, though. They have more problems than top loaders and require more maintenance.

So advice or tips on buying new would be cool, too. It's a shame I just canceled my online subscription to Consumer Reports...
