Whirlpool washer won't agitate or spin...

My Whirlpool washer Ultimate Care II model LSQ964KQ1 won't agitate or spin.  It does drain.  When it is supposed to agitate or spin it makes a loud humming noise.  Can you give me some direction as to what is wrong and how to repair it?  TIA!

This washer is a direct drive model. it does not have a belt. Situated between the motor and tranny is a coupler. If the washer is overloaded with a rug or has too little water and too big of a load these couplers break. Sometimes just age breaks em, wear and tear. Easy fix. On these washers the case is easily removed so you can access the innards. I made a page chock full of repair videos on these washers. Check it out: DIRECT DRIVE WASHER

Thanks for the info.  We'll pull apart the washer and check it out.
