I've got the same problem. The diagram is a bit deceiving because it appears to show the agitator/auger as one piece. However, the bolt only holds the agitator (lower portion) and then the auger slips in place over that. The fabric softener cup then snaps to the top of the auger.
Best I can tell is that the slotted 'ears' on top of the agitator are worn thus preventing a secure fit between the agitator and auger. I just finished putting some hard thumb pressure on each of the ears and bent them outward some. The auger fits much tighter now and I'm doing a test run of clothes. It is holding but I will probably have to replace what they describe as the agitator / auger assembly, costs $53.54. I don't see any other fix but would appreciate further input.

Check for the tighten nut to agatator is tighten. If agatator is lose it floats up and down during the wash. There is a lock ring (rubber) on the shaft that holds the agatator on, check this, if off replace thid . If the agatator is still in good shape can still use it , if not pull of and replace it. This work is't hard to do.

On the underside of the machine, you'll see the belts from the motor to both the drum and the water pump. If the belt to the pump is intact, check to see if it is loose. If so, you'll see 3 screws holding the pump housing in place. Try to readjust the pump so the belt is a little more snug. This worked for mine that was having the same problem. You may need to remove the front panel to reach the drain hose to drain your drum 1st - have a couple buckets and towels handy as well as someone else to run and dump your full buckets. Good luck.
