Question about GE WPRB9220D Top Load Washer
Machine won't agitate. checked belt/drive pulleys, they are OK. Removed agitator and bell coupler to check spline. Other than dirty, grooves of spline appear OK. However, noted after cleaning, Bell coupler spins feely even with screw afixed. Should this happen or does it mean that the sline is worn at the top? Noted that if raised slightly, bell coupler does not move, meaning sline alined and fixed in place.
There may be nothing wrong with the splie/gearbox shaft. At the top of the agitator on the inside is a brass "dog" That may be worn and you will need to replace it.

first thing to check when your GE washer is not agitating, is the belt.
Let me tell you how to check the belt & the clutch with out having
to take the washer apart.
The belt: Set the timer in the spin cycle and pull the timer knob to turn the washer on.
If the washer drains the water and then spins the way that it should, this tells you that the motor, belt & clutch are not the reason why your washer won't agitate.
A broken belt could be the reason your washer is not agitating or spinning.
The agitator: After making sure that the belt, motor & clutch are working ok, lets check the agitator.
The agitator uses a plastic agitator coupler that is couple to the transmission shaft by using splines cut in the coupler and on the transmission shaft.
Too much usage or overloading the washer too many times will wear the agitator coupler splines. With out the splines the coupler could not be coupled to the transmission shaft and that could be the cause why your washer is not agitating.
The clutch: A
bad clutch could also be the reason the washer won't agitate or spin.
Usually when the clutch is bad the washer will be noisy, like when you
have bad brakes on your car.
The transmission: The
transmission could be the reason your washer is not agitating. A common
problem with the transmission is oil leaking right on top of the motor
pulley and the belt.
As you can see, there could be different reasons why your GE washer is not agitating. You just need to keep checking each part until you find the problem and replace the part responsible.
