The agitaor coupling or drive mechanism is stripped. You will have to pull the agitator up out of the machine to find which of the parts need to be replace. Most likely th agitator coupling.

Washing machine is making a clicking/ticking sound when it is agitating during wash cycle

This is a sign of strained agitator components that are about to be damaged or stripped. I recommend pulling the agitator and clutch. inspect each device for stripped components and uneven ware. replace the agitator and clutch if found to be faulty.

Check the transmission(gear box) for damage as well. fill with oil if needed.

Loose agitator on Whirlpool Ultima Care II washer

it could have stripped the spline on the plastic agitator. there is a bolt at the middle of the agitator and you can access that thru the top . remove the top cover and you can remove the bolt using a deep socket.

once you remove the agitator you can look at the dog agitator. these a 4 pcs plastics that works like a one way wrench.

be careful on the location, they are very hard to put back.

check also the spline on the inner part of the plastic assembly.

they do get stripped.

if they are, replace the whole agitator.

tnx 4 using fixya,
