it was snug, it was not melted or
rusted, and did just come out).

is this a whirlpool built amana? if so, its most likely a direct drive model, and when it doesn`t spin its likely a coupling between the gearcase and motor assembly...youtube has videos on how its replaced, which isn`t too complicated to do...good luck

I have this same model and although I'm not sure what your problem could be, I do know how to remove the agitator. Get a new repair guy because you just pull up on the agitator to remove it. It is just pressed onto a cogged drive at the bottom. I read on the Internet somewhere that if you do lots of heavy loads, the agitator can slip on the metal cogged drive. So I would suggest that you pull straight up on the agitator and clean off the cogged drive and inspect the underside of the agitator to see if the corresponding grooves are worn down from slipping. You might run a cycle with the agitator out and see if the cogged drive is turning.

actually sounds like fabric softener residue with dirt mixed in...it's almost like a wax if thats it. probably just have to clean it regularly..good luck! :)

Ifi t does not spin it may be the timer. Try it in the delicate cycle to see what happens. Actually try all teh cycles to see if it spins in one of them. IF so it most likely is the time and is a 15minute job to replace.
