I removed the agitator, replaced the agitator coupling. The guy at the appliance store where I was able to find the part said to check the splines on the inside of the agitator as well. Glad I did, the splines on the agitator were worn out too. So by checking both, if and when the problem occurs, REPLACE BOTH parts! This will save a lot of grief for you!

Repair was done with the help of step by step insructions available on utube, just enter model# and the repair you need to do. One problem I had was new tub seal{GE part] was a little smaller in diamater than the seal I removed And still leaked when I first ran washer So I took it back out and used a sealer [Permatex Indian Head gasket shellac compound from auto parts store] as recommended by one of the the repair techs on utube and it sealed it perfectly, just let it set op for about three hours and nice and dry now

When I received the replacement part, I was shocked at the small size compared to original equipment. I doubt the new part will last 12 years which is how long the original lasted. I installed it anyway because I did not want to wait for a better one from some other company. The new part was easy to install, but was not worth the price because it surely will not last.
