If you want to DIY then read below.
Remove the agitator from inside the washer by loosening rubber nubs with a screwdriver.
Then loosen bolt underneath agitator cap with a socket wrench.
Check clutch assembly area for wear and tear. They can be found in the upper portion of the agitator assembly.
If the dogs (which turns the clutch) are in bad shape, try replacing with a dog kit.
Put agitator back on and test
If its spins out on the next load you do, you're good to go. It could be one these more complex issues: Bad Wiring harness, Bad Motor, Bad Transmission, Bad Motor Coupling.
To assist you further I have given you a link below for your service and repair manual. This will help you sort your problem.

If you don't wish to DIY, then it is my professional advice to call your Amana repair, and request a service call, now when the service man arrives please ask him for a 'Quote" before allowing any work to start, this way you can get an idea of costings etc.

Kenmore washer will not agitate but will spin. Transmission spind free and motor was replaced. Could it be the capactor?


Hello,

No very likely it will not be a problem with the capiciator,what it does is gives the motor a extra jolt of power when it first starts to get the motor running,so if the motor runs the cap. is working normally. Since it does spin yet wont agitate the problem is very likely going to the transmission. HOWEVER FIRSTLY THOUGH I HAVE A QUESTION; is both the upper barrel of the agitator AND the lower paddles not agaitating or is just the upper portion notturning while the lower paddles work??

If both the upper and lower section aren't moving the problem will probable be the tranmission

IF JUST THE UPPER PORTION ISN'T WORKING the problem will be the part called the agitator dogs, thats a fairly common problem with the dogs to be worn out and just the upper part of agitator not working....this tip i wrote will show ya how to replace the dogs if that is what turns out to be the problem. http://www1.fixya.com/support/r10294924-top_part_agatator_isnt_turning_top_load

Is the upper part of the agitator supposed to spin with the lower part? It spins freely when I turn it, but doesn't spin when spin cycle is activated during a cycle.


You have bad agitator dogs . Easily replaceable and inexpensive . Remove the center bolt holding the agitator on and seperate the 2 agitator pieces . You will see 4 teardrop looking pieces ( dogs ) . Replace and your done .

I don't think the upper arm is rotating and I was wonder what the problem could be. Thank you, Les


The upper arm is driven by water pressure so if its not rotating it's generally because
a) the arm isn't locating properly in the upper rack
b) the arm is fouling something in the lower rack
c) blocked feed pipe to the upper arm

Upper Arm Not Spinning on Whirlpool Quiet Partner I


Possibly, the intake screen under the lower arm is partially plugged. Take the upper arm off and inspect the holes for plugging and that the seam between upper and lower halves is not split. Our Maytag split the same seam--fixed by drilling a number of very small holes along the split and sewing it shut with fine wire.

Upper portion of Whirlpool agitator not turning


Your agitator dogs are worn out. Remove the agitator and seperate the upper section from the lower section. There are 4 small teardrop shaped pieces that are the agitator dogs. They have either come apart over time or at least the teeth have worn off them.
Post back with any questions. Please verify the model number. I couldn't pull up a parts list for it. I know the last digit should be a 0 (zero) instead of an o.
Thanks/Mike
