Question about Washing Machines
Wash cycle very weak agitation, everything else works good spins great.
This sounds like it is being caused by a faulty clutch. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn and needs replaced you may want to contact an appliance technician but I am attaching a link for you to provide further information. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

It appears your clutch assembly has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
