Whirlpool washing machine,only bottom agitator moves top doesn't.
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,

ngfam1 At your service!
You did nothing to cause this! Things wear out! So is life!
Sounds like the coupling between the transmission and the agitator is broken!
How old is the washer?Sounds old!
If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!
Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.

This is usually the agitator dogs have worn out or broke. These are very inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the proper inspecting and replacement of these parts. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description, the problem is likely worn agitator dogs/gears. The new dogs alone part # 80040 or what I'd recommend, part # 285751 as a kit with new hub too.
These are common and availble at most brick & mortar parts depot's as well as on-line vendor's.
You`ll need to remove the top of the agitator to replace them.
To remove the top cover of the agitator, it should lift off by prying up gently with a flat screwdriver or puddy knife.
Under this cap there actually is a screw/fastener,( bolt ) it just may or may not look anything like a typical screw. It could be a plastic piece with a square center and with the aid of a large flat screwdriver inserted in this location pressed into one of the corner`s in the square center (as to hold it still or turn it, I usually hold it still while turning the agitator) at the same time as holding the bottom of the agitator, turn it counter-clockwise and it will come loose. It may be the bolt style and in that case just remove the bolt and lift it out.
On Kenmore full size washer`s built by whirlpool there are several types, ones with a 7/16", 1/2" or 9/16" bolt holding it in place, and the type I described.
This is a link to a helpful a amatuer "how to" video...it may have slight differences to your washer, but essentially the same.
Thank`s for visiting FixYa. Good luck and let me know if I can assist you further.
