You should be able to pop the top of the agitator off. There are sometimes plastic gears right there that get eaten away. Check those.

How do I unlock a whirlpool duet washer


from a previous discussion:

Wait at least three minutes after the end of the cycle before attempting to unlock your Whirlpool washer. The door will not unlock until the motor speed equals 0 and 180 seconds have elapsed since the motor control unit received the "Stop" command. If the water in the washer is warmer than 122 degrees Fahrenheit or the water level is set higher than Wool, Delicate or Hand Wash, the washer must drain before the door latch will unlock 2 Hold down the "Control Lock" button on your Whirlpool washer for three seconds at the end of the washing cycle. Listen, and when you hear the unlatching sound, the door should open.3 If your Whirlpool washer did not unlock at the end of Step 1, press and hold the "End of Cycle" button for five seconds to manually reset your washing machine.4 Unplug your Whirlpool washer and leave it unplugged for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, plug your washer back in. The washer's programming should be reset and the door should open.5 Manually unlock the door of your Whirlpool washing machine. Make sure to unplug the appliance before completing the manual unlock. Use a screwdriver to remove the metal strip, called the toe panel, at the bottom of the washing machine. Once you've removed the toe panel, reach up inside the front panel of the washer and feel around for the door latch. Locate the tear-drop shaped tab at the bottom of the door latch and pull it gently. When you hear a click, the door should open.

Kenmore 80 series washer model 110 doesn't fully drain when cycle complete


With the lid open, try to turn tub by hand. If you can you may have a bad clutch. If you hear the washer agitating at the begining of the cycle without any water and filling at the end of the cycle, replace the ATC switch. Try spin cycle and open the lid, if you don't see the tub turning, but hear the motor, check motor coupler, or if it never spins after you close lid, check lid switch. These are the most common solutions to this complaint.

    Washing machine fills, agitation fails


    Problem solved. The short version; there was a toddler's sock stuck in the water pump. Once removed, the machine works great.
    FYI - After I removed the outer casing, to drain the water, I removed the BOTTOM hose from the pump first (TOP hose was unrestricted flow and my spill pan under the washer wouldn't have been able to keep up with the volume). The water trickled out steady and slow, which made me think 'obstruction.' Once the water drained, I pulled off hose #2 and there was the sock. The motor turns both the transmission (agitation/spin cycles) and the pump. The blocked pump was preventing the motor from turning, and the safety mechanism was kicking out so as to prevent the motor from burning up. I checked the motor and transmission while I had it apart, just to verify these other parts could move on their own and had no issues. They were fine. There's something to be said for these older washers ... even a 'no experienced idiot' like me can figure out how it works. Hope this is helpful to someone else out there.

    PS - The hardest part was getting the washer casing back into place.

    Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SW1: Won't drain


    The washer drew half a tub of water on the "Bulky items" cycle, and stopped. All the lights on the cycle dial light up and flash, the machine beeps and the me error message in the "estimated time remaining" field is "Ld". I've tried to shut the machine down and change the cycle to "drain and spin" but it will not agitate, won't drain or spin.
