Hello there and merry christmas to you too
ok please read this solution fully this will be posted in 2 posts so i can get it all for you ok
There are a couple of different reasons that this problem happnes on these machines i have this listed below please feel free to leave me a comment on any of these if you need help trying to figure out how to inspect them or test them ok but you will need a multimeter to do most of the testing.
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it. Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.) i will continue in the next post
