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.

Tips for a great answer:
It seems that something is stuck and you'll have to remove
the agitator to clean it. If this is an old style washer, then it should have a
bolt under the cap that must be removed to remove the agitator, then grab hold
of the agitator and lift up. If it's a not too old then the agitator just pulls
out, remove cap, if no bolt, just grab hold and lift it up hard... see the picture. Hope
this helps...please post back for further assistance.
