Question about Washing Machines
It could be either. You would have to see if timer is sending power to motor on higher speed settings. If it is, then motor would be the problem. If it’s not, then timer is the problem

take the top piece off by hand. Below that should be a plastic cover hiding a bolt. Lift up this plastic cover and remove bolt. Lift agitator up. Might have to wiggle it a bit.

Does the bottom of your agitator work correctly? We had the same problem if you pop the cap off the top of your agitator there is a cam in there with 3 dogs that engage the agitator causing it to spin. If the bottom part is agitating correctly then chances are the dogs in the cam assembly are shot. If the bottom is agitating correctly then it is very possible you have something stuck under the bottom section of the agitator. If this is the case remove the top cover (same as before it's just a lid that pops off) inside you will see a 1/2" square use a 1/2" drive ratchet with a 3" or 6" extension unscrew this piece remove the top section of the agitator then the bottom. Once the bottom is out check to make sure all is clear inside the washer. Reassemble in the reverse order making sure the lower section sits all the way down on the splines for the drive mechanism. If neither one of those solve the problem I would suspect you have an issue in the drive train of the washer.

The agitator just pulls off- they can be very tight!! You need to get your fingers under each side of agitator and pull up. Kleenmaid do have a special tool to make this easier, but I have always managed to pull them out by hand with a good firm sharp pull upwards. To refit, just put it over the drive bell ( the plastic thing underneath agitator) and give it bit of a whack to clip it on. Good luck!!
