More than likely the plastic tabs that hold the agitator on are worn or bent to the point where they won't hold securely anymore. It's probably a good idea to go ahead and replace the agitator before it comes off during the wash cycle and damages the washtub.

The drum won't spin or agitate the cause is the belt slipping off

There is a mechanical alignment problem beyond your ability to fix. Get a repair Tech and pay for a service call.

GE Washer WJSR2080V3WW will fill, spin and drain but not agitate.

The problem is the agitator coupler (about $ 7.00) simply pull straight up on the agitator - Give it a good tug. take the one bolt holding the coupler off - pull straight off. Replace the coupler and bolt (they are sold together). Line the agitator lines up with the coupler lines - when they line up it should go all the way down and snap back into place. and your done.

Tub does not spin but agitates

Sounds like the door switch is either loose or faulty. The door switch keeps the tub from spinning with door/lid open.

Agitator free spins

Remove the top cap on the agitator and see if the bolt has come loose. If it is not there, the agitator will come loose from the gear case shaft and free spin.

I had this recent, as well. The plastic grooves are wearing down, so there's nothing to hold it together with. I got some gorilla glue, and put the agitator back on the metal part that comes out of the motor. I let it set over night to dry. It's worked since I did it, and the agitator stays down...

Agitator fall off and knocking noise during spin cycle

there should be a rubber washer with the bolt. if it is missing the bolt may back of during agitation. also the threads on the transimision may be stripped. Some Green lock tight found in most hard ware stores should help. the knocking noise is probably due the agitator coming loose.
