top agitator not working

  • Customer: C from Little Egg Harbor, NJ
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set

The top agitator was not working. The top of the agitator should only work in one direction. Since it wasn't, the pawls (cogs) on the top agitator were worn. In order to repair, you need to take the top of the agitator off. Remove the fabric softener container from the top of the agitator. It should pull off. Then, remove the clear plastic cover. (clear plastic cover will have an 'o' ring on it.) Below the cover will be a 7/16" bolt holding the agitator to the washer shaft. Pull the entire agitator from the stainless steel shaft. You will need to separate the top of the agitator from the bottom of the agitator. It is necessary to separately order and replace the thrust spacer, grease, and bolt. All the other necessary parts are in the Agitator repair kit which is also necessary when ordering parts. The agitator repair kit will come with a diagram for assembly, otherwise reassembly is the opposite of disassembly. It took longer to write this installation instructions than it was to do the actual repairs.

Agitator didn't spin but everything else worked.

The youtube explanation on how to repair was great, especially the instruction to lift up on the bluish plastic ring (to detach the softener dispenser), and not to tighten the bolt too much when reassembling matters.

top half of the 2-part agitator slipping (not turning) due to stripped teeth on these cogs.

removed the softener dispenser, gently pried off the top with screw driver, loosen nut and lift off the unit holding the cogs. On our (Kenmore, series 90) there was a small retaining ring to hold the cogs in place. Removed retaining ring (no tools), and cogs (one at a time). Replace each old cog with the new one, being careful that it's not upside down or backwards. reassemble. test. rejoice! This $3 part plus $7 S&H - saved a $100 house call from the appliance repair man.. YouTube & PartSelect = super Combo! Thanks!

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.

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 followed the video which was very clear and concise. The actual repair took approximately 20 minutes and went very smoothly. It now functions as designed.

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.

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!

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!!
