Chosen Solution

Agitator Repair Kit

If the washer won't agitate this agitator repair kit may solve the problem. The kit contains the components that wear out over time. This is a relatively easy repair.

Drive Block or Bell

If the washer won't agitate the drive block or bell might be worn out or broken. The drive block connects the washer transmission to the agitator, if it's worn out the transmission shaft will still move back and forth but the agitator will either stay still or move slightly.
