It appears your clutch assembly has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

I am guessing that it is the agitator that you are talking about? If so, these are usually splined underneath and fit onto grooves on the "agitator shaft" which comes out of the direct drive motor or the gearbox. If the agitator has stripped off its splines, it will not drive. Look down the middle of the agitator, you should see a screw or bolt which holds it in place. Sometimes you will need a very long screwdriver or nutdriver to reach it, undo the screw / nut and you should be able to pull the agitator out. The only course of action will be is to buy a new one from a Panasonic parts dealer or local appliance parts store.
