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.

My agitator quit working.

Removed center top cap/sofetner dispenser. Removed center shaft bolt. Pulled off the top agitator section from bottom portion. Inside the upper agitator is the inner housing for the cogs, pushed right out. Remove cog retainer plastic ring. Careful, the cogs freely fall out and it a little tricky when reassembling. Reassemble every (cogs go in only one way), place the upper agitator back down and over lower portion in machine. Now Put the bolt back in place. Here's the tricky part. You will need a magnetic tip driver or socket to hold the bolt until you have it started because it sits in recessed "well" area. I used a dab of regular Elmer's glue from bolt head to socket. Worked like a charm. Be careful not to over tighten bolt. Remember, upper agitator should free spin one direction and "catch" in the apposing direction.

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.

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 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!
