If the agitator does not spin at all, then it is your motor coupling. If the agitator tries to spin but cannot, then it is your dog agitators.

How to remove the top part of the agitator of a roper model ras8445kq0

Often agitator tops do spin somewhat freely, for safety reasons. Most of the work gets done at the bottom, anyway. Unless your clothes are getting tied in knots, I wouldn't worry about it.

But if you want to look, they're usually not that hard to remove. I can't picture yours off the top of my head, but look for a cap/cover/cup on top that can be removed by hand, and there might be a bolt underneath that. There's usually a lot of friction in addition to the bolt holding it in place, so you might use an old towel slipped under the agitator and cinched to give you more leverage/grip.

Good luck.

How do i get to the dog agitators in the roper ras8445kq0

Pop the top cap of the agitator off. Reach inside with a pair of pliers to pull out the plastic cover. Take a 7/16 socket wrench with extension and remove the bolt. Pull up on the agitator to separate it from the bottom portion.

Will fill and drain, not agitate or spin though

I am having the exact same problem with the same brand machine.  I put in a load of clothes to soak till the morning, but in the morning, the washing machine would only fill, spin, and drain.  The agitator would not wash the clothes, so they came out with the soap of course still crusted in.
