Pull the top of the agitator off...there is a nut inside of it (ratchet and socket usually 5/8 and a long extension) pull agitator out.

I have a FEX831FS4 that will not agitate, however, it will drain and spin. Where should I start the diagnosis process?

Start right here:

This will give you a good idea of what you are looking at and where it is located as-well-as the expected costs of parts. Keep in mind though eBay is now a great place to get parts. Often for way cheaper than a parts outlet will charge.
It's kind of unusual for a machine to just lose agitation, unless it has a clutch or maybe agitating dogs; however, this unit has neither that i see and i must confess i've never worked on one. It's possible #2 on the transmission diagram is worn. Does the agitator spin? It may turn a little, but should not spin around like there is nothing holding it. If it does it is either the agitator or the part it connects to (# 2) or an associated part. Removing agitators can sometimes be a pain. Warming an agitator up with a hair dryer can make all the difference in the world when something seems stuck.
Good Luck.

My Frigidaire front load stacked washer/dryer makes a horrible noise and won't spin. It works perfectly except for the spin cycle

you need to remove the agitator take the cap off and remove the bolt from inside the agitator and then remove it look at the metal trunion in the bottom of the tub and see if there is a broken bolt holding the trunion to the shaft.there is a chance the transmission need to be replace if there is no broken bolt

Clothes are caught under the agitator. How can I

Remove the top part of the agitator or the cap and you should find a bolt in the center. Remove the bolt and pull up on agitator.

98702 is not the model # of the machine. you should find the model # either on top of the machine or in the dryer door area around the frame.

How remove wash machine top

On these machines there are no screws holding the top down, get under it and pop it up using a tool that won't scratch the finish.
First I would try removing the front panel to see if it could be done through the front. Its only held by two screws in the bottom.
Good Luck
