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.

The electronic timer is worn and requires replacement, this would be a bulky metallic box located just behind the large setting knob.

Loose agitator on Whirlpool washer. The base is secure, it's just the upper part of the agitator is wobbly

These agitators have a set of 4 dogs. Overtime these dogs simply disintegrate.

Factory part number 80040.
Older models are a bit tougher to deal with than newer models.

Washing Machine wont spin/agitate

The most common problem is the lid switch. with a screw driver in hand open the lid and press down on the lid switch. sometimes the mounting screws will crack the switch housing and the striker can't move the actuator far enough. I am interested in the clicking noise, as this could indicate a pump issue or a sock seizing up the tub.

Whirlpool LSQ8543JQ1, washer stopped full of water, will not start back up, seems like no power to it, check fuse box and everything else that is running of same.

Pretty much exactly what guest above me said. I have a lsq8543jq1 also, was stopping after agitation.

At first thought it was something more serious, since the dial seemed to make a humming/grinding/buzzing noise when it was switching to agitation cycle, but that seems to just be a timer before the drain/spin cycle kicks in.

I had a washer full of water, so rather than wait till I could get a part (or hand drain -what a pain), I just grabbed a paper clip and rigged the switch so it thinks the door is shut and voila, drains and finishing cycle as I type.

The switch is a safety device to prevent accidents; bad injuries could result if the door is opened while the washer is in spin cycle. I don't recommend this as a long term solution - especially if you have kids. I have 2 and will be ordering the new part asap.

Washer Won't Agitate

I would make sure that the washer is properly leveled, and ensure that all sensors that check if the door is closed are working properly.
