Used the directions provided and used white lithium grease versus agitator grease working fine. You should really include the grease and include it in the package only concern.

Agitator not working

Followed the directions from the video from Part Select website. Very easy, saved allot of money doing it myself. Ordered the Agitator Repair Kit and the other parts that the website suggested I needed for the repair. But when you order the repair kit you do not need the Thrust spacer or the Inner cap seal because they came with the kit. The Kit I ordered does not state that it comes with those two items, but they did with the kit I ordeded. Would order from Parts Select again. Order arrived in about 3 days on a Saturday, which surprised me that FedEx delivered on a Saturday with the standard shipping. Thank You

Removed fabric softener dispenser and agitator cap barrier. Used ratchet wrench with extension to remove the 7/16" agitator bolt. Lifted out the agitator unit and disassembled it, removing the broken directional cogs. Replaced worn thrust spacer (used white lithium grease to lubricate), directional cogs and inner cap seal. Reassembled and reinstalled agitator unit.

The top section of our agitator wasn't turning properly with the lower section

I looked up the issue, and found a related video on YouTube. We ordered the parts, and I was very happy with their price (about 60% less than Sears) and how quickly they arrived. ...... It should be an easy repair, but our agitator top would not separate as it should have. ...... We look it to a local shop, and they said that sometimes the plastic 'fuses' together during factory assembly. They used wire cutters to snip the fused plastic. ...... After that, the rest of the repair was easy: just take out the broken cogs, and insert the new ones, and re-assemble.

Found Website and entered model number. Used the quick explanation of problem to find required parts for repair. Found that one washer was left off in the parts recommended for repair while repairing that was purchased locally because it was cost was lower than part and shipping on line.

clothes not cleaning and not agitating

  • Customer: Sheree from Meigs, GA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

I noticed that the clothes were not cleaning as well as usual but I did not put two and two together ie problem with agitator. Because of this problem, I starting using more detergent and taking more time in prewash preparation. I forgot one day to put detergent and baking soda on a grease spot, so I opened the loaded and running washer to see if I could spot the item, and what do you know...The clothes were not agitating, or were doing so barely. The bottom was working but the top was barely functional, okay, not fuctional. So I went to the web and typed in agitator not working and this nifty page with the vid came into my perview. Shopping for parts easy and whatever menu you need to follow you've got. I did the selecting based on location, color and the size I could see and then went back and found the model number to confirm that I had the right parts. I bought extra parts by mistake, the agitator repair kit includes a thrust spacer and agitator cam bearing, so just be aware. The video on how to accomplish the repair was clear, no hidden angles, nothing skipped, so I did not have to keep reviewing it. I used a thin metal rod to wedge into the top of the fabric softener dispenser and pop it off the top of the agitator, other wise I was not getting it off. Followed the details included in the parts packages for each section and my memory of the video I managed quite easily to replace the parts. I hate trying to figure out how to get to the point of repair in some pictures or even videos. Trying to reverse the take apart can be equally frustrating, but the video was great. I had no problems, and no redos. The agitator was no longer loosey goosey. First load I put in was large. I did watch when the load started agitating, and what did you know, it was actually agitating! Great place to buy parts.

Very easy to do after looking it up on this site. Two screws, a pair of pliers, and 15 minutes later, the washer no longer leaks. Easy repair at a fraction of the cost of a new one. Thanks

I tilt the washer on it back so i could get to water pump. Then using a pliers i squeezed the camps holding the hose going to the pump and pull off the hoses. Then i unhook the clips holding the pump and the pump came right off. I put the new pump on, basically the same way the old pump came off. The washer is now working perfectly.
