Kenmore 80 Series 110.27802690 agitator barely moving

It's the transmission that's bad. The motor turns one direction to spin and the opposite direction to agitate. The transmission converts the constant belt speed from the motor into the back and forth motion. In the other direction, the transmission stops and the whole system spins.
(I don't suspect you have it set to "delicates")

My washing machine is only 6 or 7 mths old everything still working fine it just isnt spinning its still pumping water out though!

Chances are extremely good that you just have a broken coupler. These parts range from $15 - $25 on average. Were there any signs of foul play before this problem? Does your washer agitate(plastic fin in the middle rotate back and forth and wash the clothes)? Basically, if the coupler is broken, the machine with neither agitate or spin. However, you do not need a coupler to pump water out :)

I would definitely have it repaired. You should spend a little on the part + labor. Those are excellent washers and they do not make them anymore!

Agitates but wont spin

You will probably find this useful, particularly sections 2 and 7.$FILE/Maytag_Atlantis_III.pdf

Note how one motor is used to produce the agitation when it rotates in one direction and the spin when it rotates in the other. The manual describes how the motor spin is transferred through the transmission and other elements. You need to consider each step from whether the motor is spinning to whether the tub is turning and see where the motion is being lost. The motor itself is probably just fine since it produces agitation. Something is probably either jammed (if the motor isn't turning) or disconnected (if it is) when it should be spinning.

Kenmore 90 Series

The agitator has four small teflon (I believe) plastic grips inside the upper portion called "agitator dogs". They have small teeth on them to grip the inside ring of the agitator. You can replace them for less than $10 for a pack of 4. Your local appliance repair shop should carry them, or be able to order them for you. Let me know if this helps.

Grinding niose from agitator.

If the fill and drain functions correctly, AND the spin cycle works correctly, AND the cycle itself starts and completes correctly, the problem being that the back and forth motion of the agitator starts the loud grinding noise, it will likley be broken gears in the transmission. The single most expensive part in the washing machine.
