Well,the repair was actually easy once I read all instructions. My son and I did the repair. After we got the agitator apart my son took his feet(after I told him thats how you get it apart)to separate the bottom agitator from the top agitator. Everything went everywhere. Thank god for Part-Select and their wonderful pictures. We put everything back together and it is working like a brand new machine. THANK-YOU. If we would of read first it would of only took 15 minutes to install. S Brazil

The whole process took about 20 minutes. I popped the cover off the top of the Agitator and unloosened the nut holding the agitator onto the shaft. I then replaced the cogs, which just slipped into place. Finally I replaced the agitator back onto the shaft and tightened the nut and replaced the cap.

I watched the video on the page with the parts I ordered. The machines were not the same, but the principle was the same. Did as instructed, except for being creative with the tools on hand. It all made sense by the time I got it apart.

The fix was super easy. The parts were less then the shipping and had my parts one day ahead of the estimated time on the internet. It was a Bing Bang Boom project that saved the fiance and me a few bucks.

well the replacement of the directional cogs was easy, once i was able to separate the the top and bottom half of the actual agitator. What i could not find out about my whirlpool gold was their was 4 plastic tabs that held the whole cog assembly onto the agitator. i could not pull it apart like all the videos were showing, until i took it to a repair shop and he showed me. After i used a hammer with a screwdriver to break the plastic tabs, it popped right apart. The actual repair only took about 30 min. once i was able to get the agitator apart.

The directional cogs wore out

After a little research on line, I knew to remove the fabric softener cup, pull out the clear plastic divider, unscrew the agitator bolt, pop off the construction clips, slide a plate down a bit, remove the old cogs, put in the new, return all the pieces to their places, screw the bolt back in place and now it works perfectly. I also bought a cabinet clip, spacer & screw that I will use at a later date. This repair went quickly and easily.
