Removed the fabric softner at the top of the agitator (needed a screw driver to pry it loose) and reached in to grab the barrier with my hand and pulled it out, very simple to do.When I put the new one in I put some liquid soap on the gasket and it snapped right into place.Very easy to do, all is well now, thanks Part Select.

I watched the provided video by parts select and two other ones on youtube by the common public and when my parts came in pursued to repair the washer with ease. Now, waiting for the weekend to wash cloths to see how things hold up.

Upper agitator not working

  • Customer: Ralph from Green Cove Springs FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set

I removed the fabric softener dispensoer. Used a ratchet with extension and socket to remove retaining bolt and removed the agitator assembly. I then pulled the upper agitator off the bottom and replaced the broken parts. Reassembled in reverse order and repair complete. Watch the video Partselect offers for free and see how simple it is. If your upper agitator will rotate in both the clockwise and counterclockwise direction, it needs to have the cams replaced. They work like a ratchet to only allow one direction which make the agitator function properly.

The top section of our agitator wasn't turning properly with the lower section

  • Customer: Kathryn from Shingle Springs CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set

I looked up the issue, and found a related video on YouTube. We ordered the parts, and I was very happy with their price (about 60% less than Sears) and how quickly they arrived. ...... It should be an easy repair, but our agitator top would not separate as it should have. ...... We look it to a local shop, and they said that sometimes the plastic 'fuses' together during factory assembly. They used wire cutters to snip the fused plastic. ...... After that, the rest of the repair was easy: just take out the broken cogs, and insert the new ones, and re-assemble.

I looked at the fine parts blow-up drawing available on internet. It was immediately clear the teeth had worn smooth on the cogs, and replacing them would fix the problem. I placed the order for the three parts sets I felt would be useful, and the most amazing thing happened, The parts arrived the next day, they were all in the package they all fit, and I was washing clothes within and hour. The information on line was understandable and accurate and the speed of delivery was outstanding.

The cap thingy seal broke and splattered fabric softener.

I could add absolutely nothing to the instructions given on your site. They were short, simple and easy to follow. I was so proud of just how well everything did go. We were looking at a three hundred dollar repair bill, which I did myself for about twenty bucks! To be perfectly honest, it was actually fun! Thank you so much for your site! Aerospace Designer

Great service, pricing and shipping. Needed only ratchet, 8" extension and 7/16"socket. Replaced thrust spacer, agitator directional cogs and agitator cap w/seal, using marine wheel bearing grease on thrust spacer and agitator spline. Very easy fix.

I took the Agitator Cap Barrier out of the Top part of the agitator and than screw that holds the 2 parts together. I removed the part that holds the Cogs. I replace the Directional Cogs (dogs) into the holder, replaced the holder into the top agitator, replace the screw, put the new Agitator Cap Barrier in and it now works as good as new!! It took me 3 minutes tops!

I had already taken the agitator apart to see what the problem might be. that was very simple. When I watched the video you have on your sight, you took it apart the same way I did, so you have it right!
