Well, I have not replaced the parts just yet. I will, but I am running on Cajun Engineering at this time. You see, while dis-assembling the cogs from the unit, I noticed that they could be placed back in upside down. Due to the designed curve of the cogs, they extended more aggressivly toward the sprocket. Even with the remaining worn teeth, the agitator is working fine. I am watching to see how long my "Cajun Engineering" fix is going to work. I do have the parts and I will replace when I must. To all of you "worn agitator cog" guys out there, try pulling the cogs, turning them over and placing them back in. Regardless if the manufacturure reccomends this, your wife is who you have to keep happy. If this works, as it did for me, the clothes will get clean in your house, not having to be brought to a laundry-mat; and you will be a hero once more in the "Mr. I can fix anything" category.
