This washer has been great with minimal work needed over the years. It just stopped agitating or spinning and now makes a whirring sound.

Is this a simple type if problem for a novice to repair? Should I just buy a new unit or maybe call a pro repairman?

Well my wife decided not to wait for me to order parts and do it myself, but the repairman charged us $162 to replace exactly what you told me. Does this seem about right? The repairman was at the house less than 30 minutes.
