Many Whirlpool built 'direct drive' washers use a 2 piece agitator. There are cogs called 'dogs' or 'dog ears' and a cam between the two halves of the agitator which can wear leading to a clicking/ticking sound and reduced movement of the top agitator section during the wash cycle leading to poor cleaning results. In most cases these worn parts can be replaced without much cost or difficulty. If you have this style of washer this should help.

Im sorry to say, it sounds like the transmission in the washer may have gone out, the unit it self sits at the bottem of the main agitator shaft under the the tub, you may be able to have this replaced, but shop around for the right price.

You need a new agitator dog. Ask your appliance parts guys about it.
Pull off the softener body, remove the cap and remove the 7/16" nut and pull the agitator top off.
You might have to use some penetrating oil and a block of wood to tap the top half before it will come off.
Transmissions are pretty tough and usually don't break.
