yes agitator dogs. they rotate outward when the agitator cranks backwards and rotates the top agitator. you can find them at most appliance stores. they range 5-25 bucks. you will need a ratchet, socket (size unsure but believe 1/2"), small screwdriver, and an extension 8" for the ratchet. if you are doing the work, i expect it will take you about 1/2 hour total time. with your parts in hand follow the instructions below. 1. with small screwdriver pry the top cover off the top of the agitator. you will see the line when you start prying it. then work it loose with your hand. 2. look inside there is a plastic cover with a small tab . pull this out, it just pulls out. 3. at this point you have exposed the set nut. this is what actually holds down the top agitator to the base unit. 4. with the ratchet unscrew the bolt inside its about 3/4" to 1" long. and pull bolt (unscrewed) out with your hand. now the unit is ready to pull off. Note you may need to hold the bottom base with one hand while u unscrew bolt. 5. slowly work the top agitator upward holding the base part down. it may be a little sticky. be patient. once your get it off. 6. turn the top agitator that u just pulled off upside down..you will then see the dogs and that they are held in with a plastic sleeve. carefully pull off the sleeve and replace each dog, one by one. some will be broken some will be stripped. there are 4 of them. once done reverse the process you will be able to try the agitator by turning it cclockwise. it should catch. if at this point it does not you may need to replace the agitator which is about 50- bucks or so. with the same process to change out. gl k

i think that the agatator may have a screw in the side of it nearer the bottom stem if so slacken off and pull ajatator off main shaft
if no screw just pull agatator off
sometimes takes a bit to get off
do not turn machine upside down

You need to replace the agitator dogs. Yes...there is such a thing. These are four small plastic pieces under the agitator cap that grip the upper agitator, preventing it from back spinning under a load. Searspartdirect.com has an excellent illustration of how your agitator is assembled. Just type in your model number and look under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub" heading. The dogs are listed as item 10 (part #80040). For a bit more you can order the entire upper cam replacment kit (which includes the dogs) as item 9 (285811). For instructions on how to replace, just follow this link:
This is an expensive and very simple repair. If you require addtional assistance, let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: agitator problem
Check and see if it spins freely in both directions. If it does, this means that your "dogs" are worn out in the top agitator. This is an easy fix. You just get the new ones (usually 10$ or less), pull the top cover off the agitator, then pull the center cap off inside of the agitator. Then you just remove the center bolt and pull the whole top agitator off. You will see the 4 plastic dogs right on the top of the agitator.
