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

Disassembled upper agitator to ascertain cause of problem. Agitator directional cogs were worn out. Washer on agitator bolt was also worn off. Replaced those parts along with installing a new thrust spacer and everything works beautifully. Only required a standard #2 flat screwdriver to pop the cover off the agitator and a 7/16 socket on an extension to remove the agitator bolt. Quite a simple project.

Top part of agitor would not work properly because of the directional cogs being worn out.

From the central column, pull off the fabric softener dispenser (of course, with the machine off). Reach in and pull out the seal (looks like a diaphram). Using a socket, undo the bolt and pull out the plastic ratchet assembly. I found the 4 dogs in bad condition, ordered them, and received them in a couple days. Replace the old dogs and reassemble. Only the bolt requires a tool. Much simpler and cheaper than I had anticipated.

The top two-thirds of the agitator didn't agitate.

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.

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.

Disassembled and removed agitator/auger unit by removing center cap, and removing center securing nut. Once on the workbench, further separated auger from agitator unit to access clutch, cam and four dogs. The old dogs had broken into two pieces each and no longer functioned. Upon obtaining replacement dogs, I simply installed them, reassembled the parts and remounted the center auger/agitator unit. Works like a dream.
