Could be a few things here but lets start with what its not. it is agitating (pardon thespelling) so we know that its not the motor or belt or agitation gear. the next thing that we should look into is the switch inside the control knob. just like with your dryer,you should hear a click. thats the switch. if the motor isnt coming on after that then its probably that switch. you will need to take the control panel apart and disconect the wire from both sides of the switch. then turn your multimeter to the contenuity setting and simply turn the switch over and over and see if the number changes. if it doesnt then it could be the wires or maybe even a relay of some sort, but i figure first things first on this trouble shooting job.

Check the alignment and contact surfaces. Any bearings that allow the arm to spin when cold, may tighten up when heated and cause the arm to slow down or stop.

Drain all the gas/oil mix out of the system. Press the red prime bulb several times until there is no fluid in the line. Pull the spark plug and clean it with a soft dry rag. Reassemble and fill tank with 2 cyl/gas mix. Prime it, then pull several times on the start cord. That should work.
