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.

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.

The agitator is a 2 part agitator and the Top part didn't agitate.

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 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
