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?

model #LAT7400AAW. drive motor is working during no agitation

RE: maytag washer agitator issues

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.
