I watched the short video that was in the email with my order confirmation and all turned out well.

The agitaor had stopped moving when laundry was put in the washer. The bottom level of the agittaor worked fine, it was only the top that would stop with the load of clothes.

There are youtube vids on how to get the thing open. I just wish I'd known the following: 1.remove agitator BEFORE opening the unit up and leaning it back (much easier to work inside the tube with it upright). 2. be aware that a free-floating part known as the skate plate can dislodge while the unit is on it's side/back. It is a generally triangular piece of flat-ish metal between the base of the tub and the top of the drive-train chassis. If it doesn't line up properly after you replace the parts you're going to get a noisy, clanking spin cycle the next time you run the thing (as I discovered).

The cap thingy seal broke and splattered fabric softener.

I would like to preface this comment with the fact that as a 72 year old female retiree the need to conserve $$ was paramount. The instructions provided with the purchase of the part were clear and concise. First, I removed the cap on top of the agitator, (some machines have a fabric softener dispenser) then removed the small screen exposing the Nut that attaches and tightens the agitator to the machine. After loosening the nut, one hearty tug removed the entire agitator shaft allowing me access to the agitator cogs. After removing the worn cogs and replacing them with the new I then put all components together, tightened with the socket wrench and now have perfectly functioning agitator. Thank you!!

I followed the instructional video step by step with additional patience.

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.

Everything we needed was include in the Agitator repair kit to fix the problem of my agitator not turning. Easy to replace the old parts with the new. Machine works beautifully now. Happy that I only had to pay for repair kit instead of buying a whole new machine or having repair man to come and fix it. Would recommend everyone to check here first for problems with machines. Love the video that shows step by step instructions on how to install parts. Will use this website again when needed.
