The repair went very quick and easy. What made this repair so quick and easy is because of the very prompt and quick shipping of the replacement part from this company. This was my first experience with this company and will always use in the future. I ordered the part one day and the very next day I received the part. Great job to this company!!!!!

The top two-thirds of the agitator didn't agitate.

After a little research on line, I knew to remove the fabric softener cup, pull out the clear plastic divider, unscrew the agitator bolt, pop off the construction clips, slide a plate down a bit, remove the old cogs, put in the new, return all the pieces to their places, screw the bolt back in place and now it works perfectly. I also bought a cabinet clip, spacer & screw that I will use at a later date. This repair went quickly and easily.

Easy as 123... unscrewed the top agitator, removed the parts and replaced. This part cost me about $3.00 and the repair call the last time was $250.00. I guess I would call it a profitable day!

Upper Agitator Not Agitating

From the central column, pull off the fabric softener dispenser (of course, with the machine off). Reach in and pull out the seal (looks like a diaphram). Using a socket, undo the bolt and pull out the plastic ratchet assembly. I found the 4 dogs in bad condition, ordered them, and received them in a couple days. Replace the old dogs and reassemble. Only the bolt requires a tool. Much simpler and cheaper than I had anticipated.

I was skeptical that this would take less than 15 minutes, but it actually took closer to 5 minutes! (1) Remove the fabric softener cup from the top of the auger by pulling up on the collar as indicated. (2) Pry the cap off the auger with a small screwdriver. (3) Use a long 1/2 inch socket extender (with no socket on it) to unscrew the plastic retainer for the mechanism at the top of the auger. Remove the mechanism. (4) In the mechanism, there's a thin collar holding in the agitator directional cogs. Pry that collar up to remove it. This was the trickiest part. I was afraid of breaking that collar but it survived. (5) Replace the cogs. (6) Reverse the previous steps.

Washing Machine would not agitate

  • Customer: Frederick from Ellwood City, PA
  • Difficulty: Easy

There are 4 cogs that are in contact with a gear which slips in one direction and catches in the other direction as the agitator oscillates back and forth. Two of the cogs were broken and the agitator would no longer turn thus the cloths would not circulate properly through the wash and rinse cycles. The cogs (dogs), by some manufacture’s name, cost $3.83 and just over 10 dollars total including S&H.
There is also an excellent video on the PartSelect site which shows exactly how to remove the agitator, dismantle and then reassemble it. The cogs were simple to replace.
I would not have had the slightest idea how to do this without the video. My first thoughts, when I saw that the agitator wasn't working were A:Oh no I'm going to need to tear the washing machine completely apart to fix the problem or B:Replace the whole washing machine.....I'm sure there are many folks who would have just given up and used plan B. This is a great Website! I'm sure I'll be back here for other household repairs.

The whole process took about 20 minutes. I popped the cover off the top of the Agitator and unloosened the nut holding the agitator onto the shaft. I then replaced the cogs, which just slipped into place. Finally I replaced the agitator back onto the shaft and tightened the nut and replaced the cap.
