I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Model: LSQ8543JQ1, Serial: CL 0718595 Type: 111
and just within the last couple weeks it won't agitate unless you grab it at the top and help it. Then it stops again and shakes.
What do you suggest to correct the problem?
Thanks in advance,
It looks like it is the lower agitator and the upper part with the cam pieces already put together. I couldn't see how to disassemble my top part in order to get to the cam. The plastic tabs are all worn down that connect the top part to the lower agitator part. By ordering the entire assembly it will cost more but will save me a big headache.

It sounds like what you're describing is a weak clutch. The clutch could be worn & slipping or may have oil residue on the clutch pads. I would recommend replacing the clutch. Here is a link to the part.
If you remove the center cap from the agitator there should be either a bolt or a square recessed socket that you can attempt to tighten. The bolt is either 7/16" or 1/2". The recessed socket can be tightened using a 3/8" to 1/2" socket adapter.
Make sure the agitator is seated properly on the center post. You can accomplish this by finding the mounting bolt and loosening it enough to free the agitator on the post and push down evenly on the bottom flanges at the base of the agitator where it meets to bottom of the tub.
Try this and let me know if it helps. Post back if you need further assistance.
