If the bottom agitates and not the top, the problem is likely the 4 "agitator dogs" designed to allow the top agitator to turn only one way.
I assume that your model number starts with a 110 instead of 100.
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Look at the section on the Sears site for Agitator, basket and tub.
See the part "Dog, agitator "
Remove the fabric softener unit, lift the top agitator cap (use a screwdriver) and you should see a plastic part in the center of the top agitator with a 1/2" square drive.
Remove the drive and lift off the top agitator. Turning it over you should see the 4 "dogs", replace these and the top agitator should turn in one direction only.
Replace the 1/2" drive, the cap and fabric softener unit and the top agitator should work.
Following is an illustrated description of the above.

If this is a Whirlpool washer, the agitators have a split design (two sections). The top half is known as the "auger", while the lower part is the agitator. Between these two halves is a small cam assembly which is used to drive the auger, and an agitator bolt which holds everything together.
The problem you may be experiencing can be caused by a worn cam assembly, worn agitator dogs or a loose agitator bolt. The following link explains what agitator dogs are and how to access them:
If only the auger is loose, I would suspect the dogs or cam assembly need to be replaced. The part number for the dogs is included in the link I provided. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam assembyl which includes the dogs, the cam, the cam seal and thrust bearing.
If the entire agitator is loose, check the agitator bolt to ensure it is tight. DO NOT overtighten as this can restrict movement of the agitator or damage it. Tighten until snug.
Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following websites:
All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need. If you do not wish to order parts on line, use the part numbers from the Sears website and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. The agitator parts are commonly sold as part of their in-store inventory.
If you have any questions, please post back with a MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the lid) if it is different from the one you posted this question under. I hope this helps you.

There is 1 screw in the side of the agitator near the bottom that must be removed. The screw has a 1/4 head and is about 1 inch long. Take your finger and look for a round hole area a\on the side of the agitator just up from where the bottom part of the agitator merges with the stem. It is about 1.5 inches up from there on the side. Remove that screw and the agitator will easily lift out.

Testimonial: "Thank you so very much for pointing out the location of the impediment, and providing pictures. It was a 7/8 inch bolt screw."

There are 2 thin wires that run along the inside of the spine that clip onto two connectors on the mother board - one is the microphone. It sounds like this has become dislodged. Unscrew the back and check if one of the two wires is loose. On YouTube there is a great tutorial for "how to repair Nintendo DS Lite touch screen by supermodchips that explains very clearly where this wire should be. Good luck
