Removed Agitator, replaced parts according to the "how-to" video on your website. Then re-assembled. Very easy! Especially after watching the GREAT, EASY TO FOLLOW video. a $20 part probably saved me at least $200 over calling a repairman. Thank You!

I watched a video that showed how to replace the dog ears. The video made it look quite simple, so I thought I would give it a try. I ordered the agitator repair kit and purchased the 10" socket extension at a local hardware store. I did not order the agitator grease, because it is very expensive. Instead, I purchased a small container of white silicone grease to lubricate the agitator. The agitator was extremely easy to disassemble. The dog ears that were supposed to be in the agitator were COMPLETLY disintegrated. I assembled the agitator repair kit, which was incredibly easy, and was ready to reinstall the repaired agitator. I took some time to clean the agitator and, quite frankly, that took longer than the repair. To anyone considering attempting this repair, I would say do not hesitate. Not only was it easy, it was actually pretty fun. It was also very satisfying to see this tired, old Maytag washer working perfectly again. And all for less than $40 including tools & grease!!!

My hubby had JUST left for vacation the day prior - now I've got myself and 3 kiddies that need clean clothes and I have to save the day... All I needed was a socket with an extension to get to that nut all the way down the shaft after popping the center cap off. Once that was done the column came right out and I just put together the cam agitator assembly the exact way it was in the washer, about 3 parts and a rubber washer and gasket - super simple!! I ordered the part expedited (for obvious reason) and Parts Direct for the exact part I ordered to me within 2 days - will definitely order from them again!!

Follow the video for replacing the part if you're not handy. I watched part of it because I haven't played with (repaired) a washer in a long time. Mark the wire connections before removing them from the valve not critical but helpful. I actually needed the video for replacing the clips.

Hot water stopped flowing and had a small leak

This was a pretty easy repair that only cost about $30 and 20 minutes to do. The video was very useful even though the Inlet was slightly different than the original. Putting the housing back on was the toughest part. The one thing they failed to mention is that you may have to unhook the outlet on the washing machine depending on how much room you have to work. I've never worked on a washing machine before so I was very happy with the ease it took to replace this part and that the diagnosis was correct. I bet this would have cost over $125 to have a repairman do it. I also found it easier to do with two people. We simply unhooked the hoses...remember which is which. It might be a good time to check and replace the hoses too. My cold water hose is in bad shape so I know now to replace it soon. After unhooking the hoses and the outlet...and unplugging it, we moved it to an open area to work on. Simply unscrew the control panel and flip it back, then uncl the wires to the lower part of the machine. Unclip the hinges and pull the body off. Then unscrew the old inlet, unclip the hose and the circuits...again remember which goes where but they are color coded. Toss the old one and replace with the new one and reverse everything you just did.

Agitator spinning, not churning.

  • Customer: Mark from Eldersburg, MD
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

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.
