Maytag MVWC300VW1 barely moves when agitating with load of clothes.

My Maytag MVWC300VW1 seems to agitate just fine when its a small load with no clothes. Once i add 4 or more pieces of clothing the agitators barely moves. Washer is also a little bit louder than before. We purchased the agitator replacement kit and installed but this did nothing. The motor coupling seems to be in good condition. Not sure what to try next. Any suggestions?

Upper half of agitator or lower? The upper part (auger) is only driven in the clockwise direction. Lower part should go back and forth. If just the upper is the problem, did your kit come with new dogs? That's the four little pieces with teeth on them. Your washer has a dry agitate function for testing. Place timer at one click before drain in the normal cycle. Washer should agitate without water at this setting.
