If the problem is a not agitating Whirlpool washer. In other words the washer fills to the selected water level, the motor runs, but the washer won't agitate.
You will needs to check the following parts until you find out the part that is preventing the washer from agitating.
The agitator dogs: The agitator dogs are sued to make the agitator clothes mover turn in only one direction. They are made of a material that looks like hard rubber and with time they wear out.
When the agitator dogs wear out the top part of the agitator won't turn to move the clothes down to the agitator and the clothes is not going to get clean.
Another indication that the agitator dogs are wore out is that the clothes stay on top of the water instead of moving down to the agitator.
Agitator clothes mover: The clothes mover or pusher is the top part of the agitator and is use to push down the clothes to the agitating part of the agitator to clean the clothes.
The only problem that I seen with this part is that the gear cuts that the agitator dogs engage to are wore out and the agitator dogs won't engage to make it work.
Motor coupler: These washers don't use a belt. They use a coupler attached from the shaft of the motor and the shaft of the transmission. When the motor turns in one direction the washer agitates and when the motor reverses direction the washer spins the clothes basket.
With a broken motor coupler the washer will not agitate or spin. The only thing that the washer could do is to fill with water and drain out the water. It also make a weird noise when the motor runs. Click on the link below to see how this repair is done
The gearcase or transmission: The job of the transmission is to make the washer agitate or spin depending of the rotation of the motor. If the motor turns the transmission shaft in the agitation mode and you get a not agitating Whirlpool washer. One of the parts you need to check is the gearcase or transmission.
