I used the flat screwdriver to pop off the top of the agitator. then I used my socket wrench with extension to remove the bolt holding the top of the agitator to the bottom agitator. I pulled out the small piece that holds the agitator cogs. The agitator cogs were sheared off. I used my screwdriver to remove what was left of them, cleaned up the unit, then installed the new cogs. Re-insert the piece into the agitator unit and tighten the bolt back. Popped the lid back on top and ran a load of laundry to test. It works perfect! Although the teeth are pretty worn on the agitator as well, so I'm looking to buy a whole new agitator unit next. Very easy fix!!

I viewed the repair video provided and then dove into the project. I am sorry to say that the time suggested for the fix was a bit misleading. Took me less than five minutes rather than the fifteen minutes suggested. Thanks Parts Select for a great assistance in saving me an expensive repair call!

This was an easy repair. I used a 7/16th socket on a 8 inch extension to reach the agitator bolt. After removing the bolt, I pulled off the top half of the agitator, leaving the bottom half intact and attached to the washer. After that it was a simple replacement of the agitator directional clutch dogs and then putting the top half of the agitator back in place and tightening the bolt.

Popped the top of the Agitator off by hand, removed the softener cap protecting the Retaining nut by hand and used a 3/8 in socket driver with an extension and a 7/16 in socket to remove the retaining nut. Pulled top of Agitator off shaft, flipped it over and removed the Dog Ear housing. Removed retaining ring, removed and replaced Dog Ears (Cogs) and reassembled...less than 15 minute fix!

took top agitator off, cleaned it (needed anyway), replaced agitator directional cogs, replaced washer (old one was too soft to reseal) upon bolting back together. Oddly the repair kit on this website does not include a washer - I only bought the cogs - it turned out to use the same washer I use on my kegerator

I googled the symptom and watched a video on youtube. From there, I jotted down my machine's model and serial number, and googled 'washing machine parts.' I found your web page to be user-friendly, ordered the agitator cog kit and 3 days later had the parts. It was simple to reassemble. Works like a champ!! I'm a 55 year old single woman.

Agitator spinning, not churning.

watched the parts select video showing how it was done. from there it was a simple process. popped off the fabric softener cap, and the seal cap. then used the socket wrench to unscrew the bolt. took off the cog holder, and turned upside down. The video was great, because it perfectly explained how to position the Agitator Directional Cogs (dogs)when replacing. the ridge went face down into the slot. Put the holder back in, replaced the bolt, cap, etc. and it as finished. Again, this is an easy fix, and the video perfectly explained the process.
