Noticed a clunking sound in the washer, and got worried that I needed a new washer. I watched the washer in motion and noticed the auger slipping. I took the auger/agitator assembly apart and inspected the parts (dogs completely worn). Did a a Google search for my make/model replacement parts - and PartSelect popped up. I read the repair stories on my washer and purchased the Agitator Repair Kit. I received the kit four days later and began the install.

The included directions tell you everything. The toughest part for me was pulling the bearing down on the agitator cam - I just didn't want to break the plastic bearing.

No more noise, and the auger is working just fine. A quick and simple fix, and with purchasing the repair kit, I also replaced a couple other parts that showed signs of wear compared to the new ones.
