The repair went very quick and easy. What made this repair so quick and easy is because of the very prompt and quick shipping of the replacement part from this company. This was my first experience with this company and will always use in the future. I ordered the part one day and the very next day I received the part. Great job to this company!!!!!

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.

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

I took off the top of the agitator, next I took off a cap. I used a long 5/16 socket to take off the one bolt.The part that holds the clogs lifts out pop the two pieces apart, insert the new clogs and put back together.

agitator was not spinning

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 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.

Washing Machine would not agitate

  • Difficulty: Easy

There are 4 cogs that are in contact with a gear which slips in one direction and catches in the other direction as the agitator oscillates back and forth. Two of the cogs were broken and the agitator would no longer turn thus the cloths would not circulate properly through the wash and rinse cycles. The cogs (dogs), by some manufacture’s name, cost $3.83 and just over 10 dollars total including S&H.
There is also an excellent video on the PartSelect site which shows exactly how to remove the agitator, dismantle and then reassemble it. The cogs were simple to replace.
I would not have had the slightest idea how to do this without the video. My first thoughts, when I saw that the agitator wasn't working were A:Oh no I'm going to need to tear the washing machine completely apart to fix the problem or B:Replace the whole washing machine.....I'm sure there are many folks who would have just given up and used plan B. This is a great Website! I'm sure I'll be back here for other household repairs.

Easy as 123... unscrewed the top agitator, removed the parts and replaced. This part cost me about $3.00 and the repair call the last time was $250.00. I guess I would call it a profitable day!
