The agitator in the washar wnn't spin it just hums

Use a belt or rope and loop it under the agitator and using this with one hand on each end pull straight up get the agitator off. Now you'll see the agitator coupling , held by a bolt . You should NOT be able to turn this part. If you can , replace it - part number WH49X10042. You can see this part and get it from for just one source.

It didn't work. I had to call a repair man to fix it.
