If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER, a no agitation problem can have several causes. Most commonly, this is caused by either a lid switch malfunction or a broken motor coupling. The following link explains how you can diagnose the problem yourself and repair:

If the washer IS running, but the agitator is slipping, then you may have worn agitator dogs, or a loose agitator bolt. The following link explains what the dogs are, and how to access to acces the bolt and replace them:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you may need. If you do not wish to order parts on line, use the part numbers from the Sears website and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. Most of these parts are commonly sold as part of their in-store inventory.


Read through the information provided. If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER (located on a namepate along the wash tub rim under the lid) and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.
FYI: In less common situations, the problem could be related to a bad gearcase (transmission) or timer. These parts generally cost more as well. I woulkd recommend you verify the simple items first and verify your symptoms. If you need furhter guidance, let me know.

Washer doesnt agitate but spins and drains. how


Agitator pulls straight up and off. (you may have to slip a belt under it to pull it..... a hard yank) Drive coupler is nylon part you will now see, held on by one bolt. Remove bolt and pull off. If it won't come off, just break it apart with a chisel, as you need to replace that part anyway.

Replace the agitator drive coupling dome under the agitator. It is stripped out from overloads.

Whirlpool top loading washer doesn't agitate


The agitator dogs only make the top part of the agitator work. you can check the dogs by grabbing the top of the agitator and turning it right then left. If it doesnt lock when turned back the other direction they are bad. If thats not it, it could be your drive coupler. But its only the drive coupler if it doesnt spin. Also check the lid switch. But if its the lid switch Your washer will stay full of water and not drain out. But check your dogs. There are cheap and thats probably your problem.
