that most likely is coming from the tub seals and not dirt under the agitator,the tub seals are made from black rubber and metal.send the model number off of the washer or go to this site and look up your machine and it will have a breakdown on the agitator and you can see how to get it out. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action
The console is bookmarked by two plastic pieces. Take those of by sliding them to the side firmly. Unscrew those screws and lift the console so it hangs over upside down, Unplug the plug and pull the clips out by setting a screwdriver down into the front of the clip and push the screwdriver away to spread the clip open until they both pop out. Pull entire metal casement away. If it's the motor coupler you'll see black rubber crumbs on the floor. goto the repair clinic to get a new set. They're cheap.

If the motor is running but no agitation or spin is happening, then most likely the coupling between motor and gearbox has gone- look for black sooty deposits under your washer as proof. There may also be one or more pieces of white plastic. This coupling usually goes if the washer is overloaded regularly.
re; water under washer.
The ammount of water is from 1/4 to 1 cup after an individual load. It only became noticable reciently, after the last 3 or 4 heavy loads, using the manual setting on next to the top level. There is an automatic function, but due to the dirt and grit in the jeans I use manual.
