Sounds like the motor brushes need to be cleaned or replaced. Take the back off the washer, remove the motor and gently scrape the excess carbon or debris off the brushes with a pocket knife. I did this and it ran well for about 50 loads before building back up. I am ordering new brushes now because when I checked the brushes last week they were obviously worn more than 4 weeks ago.

Try to Open the safety compartment using a screwdriver under the wash machine in the front.
Then open the big white knodb this will cause the wate to drain out which is fine.
Then clean this out. Usually you will find coins and stuff here from years of operations from pockets. clear these out and your problem maybe fixed. worked for us

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Please see the Whirlpool Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers.
Also see the Whirlpool Parts list for their commercial washers although the consumer models use the same parts.
The problem points to a worn Agitate Cam.
Whirlpool part number 62580/01. This is a plastic set used to raise the agitate gear on the shaft.
The cam is a two piece plastic part that lifts a gear above the main agitate assembly in the transmission so that the agitator doesn't turn during the spin cycle.
We had the same problem. The cams had worn enough that they weren't lifting the gear (less than 1/16").
They aren't expensive at all but do require pulling the transmission.
See the following for a description of how to remove the transmission.
You don't have to remove the tub!!
Remove the clutch (the spring holding the clutch to the spin pinion is a bear to replace.
Remove the 8 transmission screws carefully, the transmission is full (15 oz.) of 80-90 weight oil.
Remove the transmission cover.
Pull off the spin pinion.
Push down on the agitate spring and remove the spring clip. Note where is attaches to the main shaft.
The two plastic agitate cam parts pull right off. Don't lose the washer on top of the cams.
Replace the cams, washer, spring and clip, pinion, oil (assuming you drained the oil first), cover and clutch parts.
Line up the transmission so that the release cam on the brake drum will snap onto the clutch spring retaining clip and put all parts back in the washer.
The basic tools are screwdriver, small socket set with up to a 1/2" socket, vice grips or good pliers (to remove and replace clips)
It may seem like a difficult job but it really isn't. It is a bet messy but it's a lot less expensive than a $170 transmission.
