The washer would go through all the cycles perfect, just not agitating. The clothes were not coming out clean. Parts select showed parts needed for this particular problem. So I purchased them.

The repair was so easy. I came home from work opened the boxes and got my socket set. Pulled the old agitator off with no problem. Grabbed my ratchet,extension and a socket.Took the old screw and agitator coupling off , which turned out to be the problem the inner spline of the coupling was stripped. Pushed the new coupling on used the new screw that came with the new coupling kit.Lined up the slots of the new agitator to the new coupling pushed it on,then pushed on the new fabric softener dispenser, done!!It took me longer to type this than the repair did!!
