After about 4-5 years, the agitator cogs or "dogs" will wear out and cause the agitator to stop working-Simply pop the cap off of the top of the agitator with your hands by pulling upwards, remove the plastic cap at the bottom of the agitator-there are 2 plastic ears that you pull up on also with your hand, exposing a 1/2 locking nut. Use a socket and extention to unscrew the nut. Grab the bottom of the agitator with both hands and pull sharply upwards removing the entire assembly. Flip the assembly over to expose the four cogs. Replace with new, and reverse the procedure to reinstall the agitator

This was an easy repair. I used a 7/16th socket on a 8 inch extension to reach the agitator bolt. After removing the bolt, I pulled off the top half of the agitator, leaving the bottom half intact and attached to the washer. After that it was a simple replacement of the agitator directional clutch dogs and then putting the top half of the agitator back in place and tightening the bolt.

I viewed the repair video provided and then dove into the project. I am sorry to say that the time suggested for the fix was a bit misleading. Took me less than five minutes rather than the fifteen minutes suggested. Thanks Parts Select for a great assistance in saving me an expensive repair call!

I used the flat screwdriver to pop off the top of the agitator. then I used my socket wrench with extension to remove the bolt holding the top of the agitator to the bottom agitator. I pulled out the small piece that holds the agitator cogs. The agitator cogs were sheared off. I used my screwdriver to remove what was left of them, cleaned up the unit, then installed the new cogs. Re-insert the piece into the agitator unit and tighten the bolt back. Popped the lid back on top and ran a load of laundry to test. It works perfect! Although the teeth are pretty worn on the agitator as well, so I'm looking to buy a whole new agitator unit next. Very easy fix!!

Removed the actuator cap which gives you access to the screw that holds the clutch dog assembly in place. Once the screw is removed the assembly lifts right out. The clutch dogs have a small retaining band that holde them in place. Once removed the dogs slip right out. Replace the old dogs and reverse the order of the removal process. Very easy.
