Question about Whirlpool LSQ8000 Top Load Washer
You probably have a broken motor coupler.
Pop off the trim pieces on the front edges of the console.
Remove the two screws that hold the console to the cabinet and flip the console back.
Remove the two clips that hold the cabinet to the rear panel of the washer and unplug the lid switch harness. The cabinet will tilt forward and slide off.
Remove the clips holding the water pump and move it to the side.
Unplug the wires from the motor and remove the clips holding it.
You will see the motor coupler.
Make sure you can turn the gearcase shaft with a pair of pliers so it is not locked up.
You can get a coupler for about $10.
If it breaks again in a few months, then there probably is a problem somewhere in the transmission or basket drive.
Post back if you have any questions.

I'VE HEARD THIS SONG BEFORE FILL, NO AGITATE, DRAIN, AND NO SPIN. YOU HAVE A STRIPPED DRY COUPLING, WHICH IS A PLASTIC RUBBER COMBINATION THAT CONNECTS THE MOTOR TO THE TRANSMISSION. REMOVE SCREWS AND FLIP TOP CONSOLE UP. FLAT HEAD SCREW DRIVER REMOVE CLIPS AT CORNERS, DISCONNECT 2 WIRE PLUG. PULL WHOLE OUTER CABINET TOWARDS YOU AND PULL AWAY FROM MACHINE. LOOKING AT THE BOTTOM CENTER, REMOVE SCREWS HOLDING MOTOR CLIPS, DISCONNECT ALL PLUGS (HARNESSES) AND REMOVE MOTOR. COUPLING WILL BE VISIBLE AND PEGS/RUBBER WILL BE WORN, REPLACE AND REASSEMBLE
