Your model number will be located somewhere around your tub opening under the lid. The parts you are looking for are called "agitator dogs" (yes, there is such a thing). There are four of them located under the agitator cap that help grip the agitator shaft when turning. This causes the agitator to crank in one direction during the wash cycle. The part number for the entire repair kit is 2744 and costs $16.80. This includes all the washers and bushings as well as the dogs. If you just want to purchase the dogs, the part number is 3109 and costs $5.20. For a little more, the entire kit would be a better recommendation. You can get everything you need at repairclinic.com. If you cannot locate your model number, type in the brand name of your washer (i.e., Whirlpool Stylemaster Washer) in the "Search" window and you will find what you need. These parts are the same identical parts that your major appliance service companies use, but cost much less (I should know, I used to work for one of them). Let me know if you decide to repair on your own and I can give you follow-up advice on how to take the agitator apart and replace the parts you need.

It sounds like you have a broken motor coupling. This is a very inexpensive and simple repair.
If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, you may have a broken motor coupling. The noise of the motor engaging, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are the usual symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking. The following link explains how to replace one:
The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria.

Common problem. The top of the agitator is driven by what are called "dogs", and are worn out.
Here is an excellent tutorial on how to replace them.
The cost should not exceed $10.00.
Thank you for using FixYa

Your model may have a flexible (break able) drive component between the motor and the transmission. Check that, it is a pretty easy replacement.

Testimonial: "Thanks! Both the Drive Coupler and the Agitator Dogs are Bad. ( Hope It's not a Transmission problem as well)"
