Hello my name isXXXXX will be assisting you with this problem today. Thanks for trusting JA to help you with this appliance question.

Hi Bill, the likely problem here is a bad coupler, To remove the agitator to get to the coupler grab a old belt, slide it under the agitator and give it a swift pull, it should pop off, Make sure you keep your face well out of the way since I have had them pop up and hit me in the face.
