Flat blade screw driver and pop the top cap off.
After that it depends on your model.
Either a 7/16 socket to remove the bolt and lift the agitator.
Or a 3/8 socket drive extension and remove the agitator.

Agitator just clicks when it should be moving. Will not move in wash or spin cycle. Please advise.

Agitator has 4 Teeth - Dog Teeth I Beleve the name is in top part of Agitator. Take softener cap off top of Agitator. There is a plastic cover under softener cap. You need to remove plastic cover then you will see 4 teeth that lock into the agitator replace all 4 teeth make sure you put the teeth back in the same way or it won't work. Old teeth are rounded and won't grab Agitator anymore. Job not hard.

Bottom agitating, but top freely spins

You need to get an agitator repair kit. Remove the cap on the agitator. Some have a second inside plastic cover/cap. You will need a long extension and rachet and 1/2" socket to remove the hold down bolt. Remove and replace the parts with the kit parts. Replace the cover. 10 minute repair... online kit is about $13.00.

Machine won't agitate or spin.

Its possible that the agitator that turns back and forth, to clean your clothes, is warn-out. I had the same problem with mine. If your agitator has a fabric softener piece on top of it, there should be a plastic circular clip, that you have to lift up, that removes the fabric softener piece. Once you remove that, there is a plastic cap, that covers the bolt, that secures the agitator, to the drum. After you remove the cap, you will see 4 plastic hooks, that grab to the inside lining teeth, of the agitator. If the 4 hooks are worn out or the teeth are worn out, then this is your problem of why it won't spin nor agitate. I put 2 small screws, one on each side of the clips, so that the clips stayed out, against the teeth, so that at least it would work, until you can replace the agitator. I hope this works for you.

Whirpool lsq9244eqo fills and drains but does not spin or agitate

It sounds like the agitator gripping teeth are worn out. To check this, take the agitator cap off with a strong knife or flat-head screw driver, pull the cap off and check the plastice teeth and four plastic hooks that grab the teeth. If they are worn out, then you will have to replace the agitator. To replace it, you will see a nut that is between the circlular teeth. Unscrew the nut and pull the agitator up hard.

Whirlpool washer agitates but makes a very loud noise

It sounds like the agitator teeth, that are plastic, are worn out. To check this, take the agitator cap off with a strong knife or flat-head screw driver, and check the circular teeth inside, to see if they are worn out. These plastic teeth are the agitator part of the washer, where as the spinning part is a metal set of teeth, at the bottom of the agitator. You see the metal teeth, when you take the agitator completely out. You will have to replace the agitator if the teeth are worn out.
