Question about Whirlpool Estate TAWS750PQ 27-Inch Washer
The agitators on Whirlpool manufactured washers usually have a split design. The upper portion is known as the "auger", the lower portion is the agitator. To get the whole assembly apart just follow these steps:
1. Remove the auger center cap/dispenser by either pulling straight up or gently placing a flat blade screwdriver into a slot located in the cap.
2. If the agitator is equipped with an inner cap with a handle, remove this as well by pulling straight up.
3. Remove the center bolt of the agitator. You will have either a 7/16” hex bolt or a recessed square plastic nut. If you have the square recessed type, use a 3/8” to ½” ratchet adapter to remove.
4. Remove the auger by carefully pulling straight up. Try to keep all the cam assembly parts assembled while doing this, so do not pull too hard. This will make this reassembly much easier.
5. With the auger removed grab the agitator at the bottom flanges and pull straight up to remove from the gearcase shaft.
If you need an illustration of how the components go back together, refer to any of these websites for helpful exploded view diagrams:
NOTE: When reassembling, make sure you get the auger seal seated properly. If it is not sealed, water will leak into the gearcase shaft and ruin it.
If you have any questions, or need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Most models used a split agitator. If your describing the top part, then an Item called "dogs" has failed. Yes that's Whirlpool's name not mine.
Here's a link to get you up and running. Inexpensive repair.

If the washer does not agitate at all, does not spin, but will still drain, this is a symptom of a broken motor coupling.
The following link explains how to replace one:
This is a very simple repair that doesn't cost much. The repair is actually much easier than you think and requires no special tools. The part number is included in the link I provided. Appliancepartspros.com carries a replacement motor coupling for about $11.
NOTE: A broken motor coupling is usually accompanied by a loud rattling noise. You can hear the motor engaging and running, but there is no tub action.
If you need an illustration, you can refer to the website I mentioned and locate item 13 under the Brake/Clutch/Gearcase/Motor/Pump section.
The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the gearcase (transmission). It takes the place of a drive belt and commonly fails on Whirlpool manufactured top loaders due to normal wear and tear. This configuration is known as a "direct-drive" system. The replacement motor couplings are more resilient and resist breaking better, because the manufacturer added a steel grommet.
If you have any questions about this repair, or if you need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

The plastic dogs are stripped inside the center of the agitator. To remove agitator pop off the top center cover(slot for screwdriver) There is a 7/16 inch bolt with standard thread, remove it and pull out agitator. Pull the agitator apart, you can stand on the bottom half and pull on the top, you have to reassemble it with the new dogs replaced(there are four in a package) Fairly simple, no special tools needed,
