Ok, sorry it took so long to write. You listed the washer as a Calypso, but it didnt look righ, so did some investigative work for you. What your describing I believe, is that the agitator top half (or the auger as well them) is sitting still and the bottom half if moving. During the wash cycle, the top half is just sitting still. If this is wrong, please let me know. If this is right, you have a sort of simple fix. Remove the top cap of the auger, pry gently between the cap and the agitator, the plastic cap will come off. When you remove the cap, you will see another cap (sometimes you do, sometimes you dont) it will be white or dirty clear in color if its there. You can put your finger on the lips and lift it straight off. Then you will see a cap with a bolt in the center. Remove this bolt (7/16" with long extension). the agitator dogs (Sears part #387091) . You should see these under that last cap tha had the bolt in it. Remove the auger (just slide it up and off), remove the dog holding cap. Remove the dogs, but be sure you remember the way they go back in. Next is the tricky part. Take the cap upside-down, and place it back in the auger. Quickly turn it back over, making sure the ag dogs dont fall out of position (you will be hating me the first couple time, just keep at it), then, with a long pair of needle nose, place the bolt you removed back in the hole. Take your extension with socket, hold the bolt firmly, and slide the auger back on to the top of the agitator. Make sure the locks and stuff fit right between the two. Tighten the bolt (just snug, DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN, you will split the cap). If all goes well and right, you should be able to roll the auger one way and not the other. If you need any further help, or need someone to yell at when the dogs keep falling out, give me a shout, and we'll help you along. Good Luck!!!!! Jim

You have bad agitator dogs . Easily replaceable and inexpensive . Remove the center bolt holding the agitator on and seperate the 2 agitator pieces . You will see 4 teardrop looking pieces ( dogs ) . Replace and your done .

Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.
