Hi Thanks for your question,Does the bottom part work ok,let me know
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
I think so? The top seems to skip with every other agitation or so (getting worse).Is it a clutch of somekind?
Expert:  John replied 8 years ago.

Washer has trouble agitating... Check the agitator dogs inside the top of the agitator, they are bad for wearing out, sometimes the agitator may only agitate one way when the dogs are worn out. This is an instruction sheet that came with the last parts I ordered for a Whirlpool/Inglis style direct drive washer agitator. If you need to replace your agitator dogs, please see this link for some repair aid.


Here is the fix for the problem,Ifyou get stuck ,let me know
