Whirlpool washing machine LA5310XPWO wont agitate -- what would cause this and how can it be repaired?

Is this a top or front loader? If it is a top loader do you hear the motor run? If you do the first thing to check is the rubber driver between the motor and the transmission. One way to chek if the motor runs is to fill it with water and put it into spin. If it pumps the water out that means the motor runs. If the rubber driver is broke (happens often) it will neither wash nor spin.

If I move the agitator manually I can hear water splashing inside even though it is empty and dry

When you move the agitator, your are also turning the motor which is connect to the pump. The water sound you are hearing is the water that is left in the pump.

My whirlpool washer will not drain or spin, but it will fill and wash

This sounds like you are having a problem with the motor not changing direction. The pump for draining is on the front of the motor and runs even when agitating, just it runs backwards therefore keeping the water in the machine. When the motor changes direction, the pump starts taking water out of the tub and at the same time the transmission changes state from agitate to spin.

This could be a bad motor, a bad timer (not connecting the proper wires to reverse motor direction) or even a connection problem with the wiring harness, though the former two are more likely.

Hope this helps

Washer will not agitate or spin

Usually it is the drive coupler in between the motor and transmission. Do you know how to repair that if not read my articles here or contact me.

Old model rca washer machine...will not agitate/wash the clothes,does spin.

If the washer fills up with water and you hear the motor running but the agitator doesn’t move, the agitator coupling is the most likely problem. First pump the water out by turning the timer to spin. Once the water is out, turn the washer off. Now pull up on the agitator until it comes off (it may be hard to pull off). Now that the agitator is off, you can see the agitator coupling, reach down and try to turn the coupling. If the coupling turns freely, it is striped out and needs to be replaced.
