Agitator spun freely both ways and would not agitate

I used a small flat head screw driver to pop off the top cap, (since mine does not have a fabric softener dispenser). My 90 series didn't have a screw or a nut holding the agitator on, instead there was a plastic shaft with a half inch square hole in the middle. I didn't have a half inch socket at the time so I used a large flat head screw driver to remove it.(lefty loosy righty tighty) Didn't take no time at all to remove the agitator and replace the directional cogs.

Used machine, unknown age, with zero upper agitator motion. The upper agitator could be turned easily in either direction.

Age and condition of the washer were unknown. I had no agitator grease available. I went for just the replacement of the Agitator Directional Cogs. I reviewed the video for replacing the whole kit. Removed fabric softener dispenser and the seal below. The seal needed to be cleaned. Removed the 7/16" bolt with a socket and extra long extension. Removed the agitator. Pulled off upper agitator. The part that holds the cogs is in about the center of the upper agitator. It also needed to be cleaned. One original cog was broken the other were past needing to be replaced. Replaced the cogs and the retainer. There was some effort with getting the upper agitator down far enough to re-install the bolt. That was just a slight alignment issue. The other parts were put back in place.

Pulled the top off the agitator, used the pliers to pull off the seal, used the socket to get the bolt off , pulled the rest of the agitator off and replaced the directional cogs. Put it back together in reverse. Piece of cake. Beats paying a repair man.

Top of agitator was free to rotate in either direction and did not work properly.

The top of the agitator pops out and leaves the fastener(a 17mm bolt) open at the bottom of a 6 inch or so opening in the top piece. That bolt comes out with a socket extension and the top comes off. Replacing the dogs is just a case of sliding a retainer ring down, removing the broken dog pieces and replacing with new dogs. Reverse the disassembly process to reassemble the unit. Now, it works great.

Took the softener mechanism off by pulling upward. Pried off the cap to the agitator with a screw driver then removed the center bolt with a nut driver. This did take a little effort since it had never been removed. Pulled the agitator out of the washer and cleaned all the parts of any soap residue accumulated over the years. Took the agitator and stood it on the floor placing both feet on the sides and pulled it apart. there is a ring inside that popped out along with the top part of the agitator and the small cogs fell out. Cleaned the two pieces and replaced the cogs, holding the main part upside down lowered the agitator bottom into place matching the four grooves after snapping the unit together slide the cog cover into place and gently replaced the agitator back into the washer and replaced the bolt tightly. Then snapped the softener attachment back into place. This required a good bit of pressure but snapped right into place. Done job. Saved a lot of money and a simple fix to a problem. Agitator now works just as it should, no slippage at all. Took about 30 min all together. You can go online to find installation directions for any brand washer that has a full size agitator.

Thurs. followed video directions, found the dogs to be defective and around 2 pm ordered dogs on line. To my surprise, on Friday around 11 am the dogs arrived. My husband installed them and the agitator is fine. I was so amazed at how quickly the dogs came. The machine was ready to go in less than a day. Thank you for your efficiency.

Fairly simple just had to take off agitator top. Unscrew a plastic bolt using a 1/2 socket extension. Pull that part or which had a spring under it take out agitator hold which your old ones probably have broken off from take them replace with new ones and put every thing back reverse order. .

It's pretty easy all I had the news just pop off the, frabric softner container, but the small plastic cap could not be pulled out by hand or neddle nose plyers. I used a hex key to hook under the plastic loops and gripped the other end with vice gripps. After the plastic cap came off I used a socket wrench to remove the one bolt and this only came out very easy. Then remove the small cylinder and had a directional COGS and it was easy to replace and reassemble
