If that didn't work there is another possible solution... I had the same problem... and since I am cheap I like to make sure I try everything I can before buying parts... so heres what you do...
-Remove the front panel off the washing machine.
-Look on the side of the tub for where the pressure hose attaches to the base of it.
-Check for a build up of gunk in the hose near where the tube meets the tub... you'll probably notice wht looks like mildew... usually you can just pull it apart.
-I used pipe cleaners to clean out the end of the tube (you can usually unattach from both ends to make it wasier to work on)
-Now before you put it back together grab a can of compressed air and use it to blow down into where the hose connects (as there is usually a build up there too).
-Reassemble... TADA... if that fixed it you just saved yourself some $$$.

If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, you may have a broken motor coupling. The noise of the motor engaging, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are the usual symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking. The following link explains how to replace one:
The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupler that is more resilient and should last longer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria. Let me know if you have any questions. I hope you find this information helpful. NOTE: There are other problems that can cause the washer symptoms as you describe, but the motor coupling is the least expensive and easiest solution to try first. If the motor coupling is still intact, please let me know.
