I googled the symptom and watched a video on youtube. From there, I jotted down my machine's model and serial number, and googled 'washing machine parts.' I found your web page to be user-friendly, ordered the agitator cog kit and 3 days later had the parts. It was simple to reassemble. Works like a champ!! I'm a 55 year old single woman.

watched the parts select video showing how it was done. from there it was a simple process. popped off the fabric softener cap, and the seal cap. then used the socket wrench to unscrew the bolt. took off the cog holder, and turned upside down. The video was great, because it perfectly explained how to position the Agitator Directional Cogs (dogs)when replacing. the ridge went face down into the slot. Put the holder back in, replaced the bolt, cap, etc. and it as finished. Again, this is an easy fix, and the video perfectly explained the process.

took top agitator off, cleaned it (needed anyway), replaced agitator directional cogs, replaced washer (old one was too soft to reseal) upon bolting back together. Oddly the repair kit on this website does not include a washer - I only bought the cogs - it turned out to use the same washer I use on my kegerator

top portion of agitator free spinning

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Removed center top cap/sofetner dispenser. Removed center shaft bolt. Pulled off the top agitator section from bottom portion. Inside the upper agitator is the inner housing for the cogs, pushed right out. Remove cog retainer plastic ring. Careful, the cogs freely fall out and it a little tricky when reassembling. Reassemble every (cogs go in only one way), place the upper agitator back down and over lower portion in machine. Now Put the bolt back in place. Here's the tricky part. You will need a magnetic tip driver or socket to hold the bolt until you have it started because it sits in recessed "well" area. I used a dab of regular Elmer's glue from bolt head to socket. Worked like a charm. Be careful not to over tighten bolt. Remember, upper agitator should free spin one direction and "catch" in the apposing direction.

The cogs had worn down and would not engage the agitator to agitate the clothes

I pulled the dispenser cap off the top of the agitator, then removed the water tight cap from inside, then used a socket and extension to remove the bolt and the top portion of the agitator. The cogs and holder easily came out of the agitator, then the black hold down ring was slipped away from the cogs and the cogs then easily were removed and replace with the new ones. The black hold down ring was then slipped back into place to hold the cogs in and the agitator was reassembled. Works perfectly now and only cost $8.95 and three days for shipping.

Top agitator would not turn during the wash cycle, and I could spin it freely in both directions while the washer was not in use.

Removed the agitator with a straight blade screw driver and then removed by hand the inner cap. Used a 7/16 socket with a long extension and ratchet and removed the agitator bolt. Once the bolt was removed I pulled agitator cam the contains the agitator dogs out of the Mover, Agitator. I replaced the worn agitator dogs with new ones and replaced everything and it worked fine. I did mark with a red Sharpie the direction the dogs were before removing them so I would replace them in the right direction. Very simple job that took less than 15 mins.

The Whirlpool website provided an excellent repair video, showing a step by step procedure for making this repair. I did have to clean the old parts but other than that i just followed the video. I used a socket to loosen a single bolt holding the agitator,I pulled it apart, replaced the cogs, and then put it back together.

My agitator quit working.
