Whirlpool washer machine will not agitate or spin

My washer machine is at least 14-15 years old, but today it just stopped agitating and is not spinning to full capacity or draining the excess water out of my clothing. Do you have any advice you can give me to what could possibly be wrong? Even though the washer is old I have never had problems with it before till today. Please reply I really can't afford a new washer machine. I would greatly appreciate it.

Same issue's but Kenmore

Kenmore Model: 110.28902790
It will fill up with water, won't agitate, will drain and spin just fine. It doesn't make any noise or anything during the "agitate" cycle. To me it's like something is not sending the signal to agitate? any suggestions?

Nope. when it should be agitating its acts like it doesn't have power (except the timer still cycles)

I don't have wiring diagrams anymore but try wiggling timer knob while in agitate. See it it will start, turn knob a click or 2 and try again. Either timer wiring to motor, or motor (motors are pretty good on your washer only changed a couple in many years). One of our other members may check in and he seems to have them.

That machine has the cycle select switch (3406241). Try changing the position of that.
Also try different cycles on the timer.

Problem would not be the motor. After washer stops filling, does the timer continue to advance? If not, most likely a faulty water level pressure switch. If timer does advance, most likely a faulty speed switch. Jump together the blue/white and orange wires on speed switch to bypass. Speed switch is the one PJmax is refering to.
