My bet would be the agitator kit
Agitator Repair Kit
If the washer won't agitate this agitator repair kit may solve the problem. The kit contains the components that wear out over time. This is a relatively easy repair.
Drive Block or Bell
If the washer won't agitate the drive block or bell might be worn out or broken. The drive block connects the washer transmission to the agitator, if it's worn out the transmission shaft will still move back and forth but the agitator will either stay still or move slightly.
Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly
If the washer won't agitate the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Door or Lid Latch Assembly
If the washer won't agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
If the washer won't agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and transmission.
If the washer won't agitate the drive belt might have worn out. Over time the drive belt will fail just from normal use . Replace the belt every two or three years depending on how much the washer is used.
Motor Control Board
If the washer won't agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.
If the washer is won't agitate the U-Joint may have failed. This is the primary drive mechanism for the agitation motion in this washer. Although this is not a very difficult repair for a DIY'er with some experience, the part is expensive and so it may be worth considering a new washer.
If the washer won't agitate the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged it will have to be replaced.

If the washer won't agitate the stator assembly at the back of the washer tub might be bad or damaged. The rotor is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the rotor fails or is damaged the washer might not spin or agitate. Check the rotor for damaged magnets or other defects.

whirlpool 1cwtw4740yq spins but will not agitate.
This washer is only 1 1/2 y/o. The first one only lasted 6months. I am an American that lives in Belize now. I think this washer is junk! I recently opened it up and the 'teeth' in the unit are all fine. I reassembled it and tightened some more. Sounds like a switch is not allowing it to engage. Your thoughts please.

I've got a similar problem, but a much older Amani washing machine (model: DLW330RAW).
I've had it for more than to 10 years with 0 service, moving it from apartment to apartment to my house after we bought one.
at first It seemed to do nothing once it hit agitation. I may not have waited long enough for it to hit the spin cycle. Later after plugging it back in, the spin cycle worked but the agitation still didn't.
