Sometimes it is a very simple fix.
Agitator dogs.
4 little plastic thingies that wear out so the agitator has nothing to grip.
I'm not sure if they are specific to each model washer but it's about a $5.00 try.
You have to take the agitator out.
I watched YouTube.
Pretty easy and far less expensive than a pro!!
It took 10 mins. The hardest part was getting the agitator apart, which takes elbow grease!!
Good luck!

SOURCE: Agitator loose

Just reach down between the basket and the agitator, and lift really hard straight up. Be sure not to hit yourself in the head when it pops loose. GE agitators just snap on to the air-bell underneith. Be sure that bell isnt loose after you remove. Good Luck!!!!

SOURCE: washer agitator won't agitate

Look at the center. can you pull the agitator up and out of the tub? You can try it with the motor running but don't grab it too snugly. Try and push it up and down while running. If it seems to try and move there used to be a rubber spindle on the trans shaft under the agitator that would become separated. I don't know if yours has one or not but the agitators were a bugger to remove usually because of the corrosion that happens. A special tool that was an air bladder used to fit under the agitator and you'd blow it up like and inner tube and pop it off. If you get the agitator off you try to get it to agitate and if you cant stop it by hand your at the problem either you'll see it obviously or it will come apart inside the agitator.

SOURCE: my agitator is not working in my washer- it is a

The agitator is driven by a couple of different methods. The first is the agitator is splined and slips onto the matching splines of the agitator shaft from the transmission. The second is the use of a bell coupling which is splined to the agitator shaft as well and the agitator snaps onto the coupling. If the agitator does not agitate, first remove the agitator and watch the agitator shaft to see if it is working properly. This will require a small load setting of water and the machine set to run. If the agitator shaft is working properly, it is either the splines on the agitator or the bell coupling that is defective. If the agitator shaft does not work properly, the problem is in the transmission.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: We can't remove the agitator

Once you remove the cap on the agitator, remove the bolt and pull straight up on the agitator. It will come off the drive shaft and you can pull it out of the tub.
See the illustration below.

The agitator should be able to be removed once the bolt in the center of it is removed,the oil you see is from the transmission that contain the gears that make the agitator swoosch back and forth,if ya see a lot oil its leaked out of the trans. and the internal gears are stripped.It could be that the center spine of the agitator itself where it connects to the trans. shaft is stripped but unless the agitator comes off where will be no way to see if that is it. IF you want to invest in tl that most likely you will never use again there is a tool out that is a rubber bladder that slips under the agitator and is filled w/water when its filled it expands and pushs the agaitator up from the bottom

Washer does spin but barely agitates

It sounds like the agitator dogs are worn.
To remove the agitator, pry off the agitator cap and remove the bolt that holds down the agitator. With the bolt out pull up on the top section of the agitator (auger) to remove it. Underneath the auger you should see 4 small white or beige plastic gears (dogs). . Replace those and it should be ok.
The part number is 80040

Let me know if you need more assistance.
Good luck!
