Model number is needed for anyone to give you a useful answer. And more detail -- when there's no agitation during the wash and rinse periods, is the drive motor running or is the machine "dead" other than the timer advancing?

Helical drive mechanism with orbital transmission. It's considered a robust design. Simple trouble would be if the agitator splines are worn, slipping on the drive shaft. Can it be turned easily by hand? Worse is a problem inside the transmission.
