GE washing machine not agitating

Lodena asked 6 years ago
I have a GE WBSR3140 top loading washing machine-purchased in 2006. Seems to run through the cycles – washing, rinsing, spinning – but the agitator is not working – agitator is very loose – can be lifted up off the bottom of the tub and wiggled back and forth. I am not a mechanic of any kind but as the handy-woman in this house if it can be fixed without a repairman I would like to give it a try. Thank you.
