Whirpool Direct Drive Washer Won't Spin or Agitate - Noisy

We have a Whirlpool LXR6232EQ0 (direct drive) Washer about 3.5 yrs old. All of a sudden, it won't spin or agitate. It does make a strange noise when in the spin mode, though. Any help would be appreciated. E-mails welcome!

Have done some further research. When I turn the agitator by hand it makes a grinding noise. I have purchased a coupler and dog-ears, but my understanding is that. if the dog-ears are bad it won't agitate, but it will spin. We have neither. These parts are cheap, but with the grinding noise, I'm afraid that it mat be a more expensive part.

Any suggestions?

Sounds like you have a broken coupler... tip washer back and you will see it between the motor and gearcase....
