Kenmore model 2130 agitator barely turning but hand turns…

Customer Question
Kenmore model 2130 agitator...

Kenmore model 2130 agitator barely turning but hand turns freely. Doesn't spin things dry.... makes funny noise...

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Bought Dec. 2012 Top Loading high efficiency low water washer. Model 2130

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Husband is electrician and very handy. Removed belt motor turns freely transmission turns freely. Connection from transmission to agitator seems loose

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Anything else you want to know?
