You need to replace the agitator dogs inside the clothes mover (agitator). take of the top then the cover, remove th bolt and take the top half off. you should see four "dogs" that need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Clothes wrapping under agitator
Somewhat inherent in this design. You can try to carefully unwrap the clothes by gently rocking them back and forth to see if you can release them, or gently spin the drum while you tug (not too hard!) on the stuck clothes. The wash plate seal might be compromised, but if you start taking the inner workings apart you have to replace the gasket set. I have not tackled this on my unit yet though I have replaced the old pump motor with the improved one (single piece instead of 2 pieces), and I have gotten adept at taking the unit apart from the bottom to remove draw strings which get sucked into the pump impeller, jamming or clogging it. The wash plate seal might be getting old - I think mine probably needs to be replaced but doing that will require more extensive repairs than just putting in a new seal. The service manual warns several times about replacing the proper seals, gaskets o-rings and/or grommets if you remove the outer or inner wash plates, to avoid compromising the water tight seals and causing damage to the U-joint assembly that gives the washer its characteristic wash motion.

Sounds like your agitator is not assembled correctly. It should not have things getting stuck constantly and it should definitely NOT be so easy to remove. Feel around the bottom edge of your agitator. If there is more than a 1/8 - 1/4 inch gap (roughly), it's not being snapped all the way down. Take a towel and fold it to where it is nice and fluffy. Lay it over the top of the cone part of your agitator. Get a hammer and hammer over the towel (as not to damage the agitator top). A rubber mallet could also be used. Tap firmly until you hear a click or until the gap between the agitator and wash tub reach 1/4 -1/8 of an inch. This should solve the problem.
Hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!
