He's correct. This transmission has been discontinued and is no longer available through Whirlpool or Distributors. Unfortunately, you'd have to find a place that sells used parts (which I don't recommend for Transmissions, as they only give 30-90 days warranty on refurbished parts) or replace the machine.

Agitator is slipping

sounds like the belt which drives the agitator is either slipping (because or wear or stretching the tension required for proper rotary function has decreased). The other thought is that the pulley system is slipping on the belt becasue of oil or grease leaking from the transmission, which controls the agitate and spin function.
Get under there and look, and clean it if needed. A degreaser may help, or, use an automotive BELT DRESSING spray, available from the local auto parts store.

My ultimate care II washer sounds like transmission is slipping

You probably need a new direct drive coupling.
Use the attached video to access the machine and check the coupling.

Agitator slipping

Replace the coupler. It is located between the motor and the transmission. I think it retails at about $8.00.

The spin problem is related to the clutch and possibly the transmission. The transmission will leak oil which gets into the clutch causing it to slip. Reach underneath the machine and wipe your hand across the base of the transmission. If there is oil on your hand replace the transmission and clutch..

It is probably the clutch slipping instead of the transmission. However, most of the time a clutch slips, it is because the transmission has leaked oil on it. Remove the cabinet or tilt it up and look under it. If you see a line of oil  about 8 inches from the bottom all the way around the cabinet, you will need a new gearcase and clutch. If the machine is less than 5 yrs old, the part will be covered under warranty.

Post back if you need further assistance in checking or repairing the washer.

Agitator problems

sounds as if the transmission agitator pawl is slipping. inside the transmission is a gear connected to the agitator. there is a spring loaded pawl that rotates around the center and engages its pawl or hook into the agitator gear for each rotation. either the pawl hook is worn or the agitator gear is rounded off. the transmission must be opened up to see what is a miss
