I believe this is a similar model to mine, which did the same things. This is a direct drive style (no belt). What possible happened is the coupling in between the motor and transmission has broken partially, and it "grabbing" only under a light load. It's a relatively inexpensive (under $5) part, and can be changed pretty easily.

These couplings can be found on Ebay:

If this link doesn't post correctly, just search for "whirlpool coupling". Good luck.

I have a Whirlpool Ultra Care II. Serial No. CK2481971 I need to know how the top agitator works. Should it be moving with the bottom part of the agitator?

Try and turn it by hand . If it turns one way free and not the other way it is ok. If it turns both ways the rachet dogs are probably worn.

I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washer that had developed a "wrap" sound coming from the agitator. The agitator had a loose fit at the top, and can be moved about a 1/4 inch from side to side. How do I...

Remove the fabric softner cup. Remove cover underneath it by pulling up on it. It just snaps in and has a seal on it. Remove the bolt and lift up the upper agitator. You will need to get an agitator repair kit from an appliance parts store. It has seals for bolt and cap,.thrust washer for the botttom of upper agitator , cam dogs and a new holder and plate. Be sure to take the model number with you.

Pull the agitator off and check the plastic drive hub at the top of the agitator shaft. It should not be split, or have it's internal splines sheared off. If this all looks ok, then likely transmission problems or a slipping drive belt (motor to transmission). Good luck!

My agitator on my whirlpool washer doesn't work properly and that keeps the clothes from getting clean. it seems as something is loose,the bottom part works somewhat but the upper of the agitator's not...

The top portion of the agitator is designed to go in only one direction. The purpose is to keep the clothes moving from top to bottom of the basket. When this "ratchet" action fails to occur, it's due to worn "agitator dogs" (part # 80040) usually caused from overloading. It can be a do it yourself repair, or a very inexpensive service call if a professional is used.
