Pull up sharply on the agitator to remove it from the shaft. Check the agitator mounting cup underneath it is probably stripped out. It is a replaceable part.
If the agitator is difficult to pull up,use a old strong leather belt under the agitator and pull it off using the belt.

Ok, take a deep breath and blow....
Ok, to understand how to fix the problem you have to understand a little bit about the control part of the machine.
Ok so here we go...
First thing is the first stage which is filling the machine with water.
So how does the machine know how much water to fill, well the answer is pressure.
If you remove the front panel of the machine and look on the side of the tub, you will see a tube attached to a plastic hull.
Air gets trapped inside the hull and as the water fills the tub the pressure inside the hull increases. The tube attached to the hull routes the pressure building inside the hull to the fill pressure switch. The more water filling the tub the more pressure generated and supplied to the switch.
If the line becomes clogged with buildup or developes a leak, the whole process will not work, thus the switch will not become engaged stopping the flow of water into the machine.
How do you check for opperation of the line and switch,
well remove hose from hull and as the tub is filling with water, blow into the tube creating pressure and thus activating the pressure switch..
You will hear the switch click and the machine should stop the fill process and start washing.
Rarely but possible, the pressure switch is faulty.
Mostly, it is a clogged line, disconnected line, or line that has been damanged by rodents or pets..
Hope this helps
