This part fixes the following symptoms:
Please note that there is a very though instruction video under, PS 334641 clutch assembly, which deals with this subject. I removed the three bolts holding the motor and transmission onto the center post and the screw holding the agitator to the center drive shaft. I also removed the wiring harness to the motor. I then pulled the motor and transmission out the bottom of the machine. I found that that there was a white nylon drive part, which was broken, that connected the transmission to the center agitator shaft, through the brake mechanism. That's why the machine didn't spin dry. The brake mechanism was full of transmission oil, which might have caused or contributed to the problem. When I looked for the PS334641 clutch assembly, which contained the part I needed, I found the video that showed me how to remove the part properly. The part wasn't that hard to change, but I also decided to change the gear case cover seal PS340984, because of the oil leak. That's a bit tricky if you haven't changed a seal before, but an automotive shop could probably change it for you if your transmission was leaking. I wasn't able to remove the out side covering of the machine, but there was enough room to work from the bottom. Following the video, the rest went well, but I should have changed the rubber motor drive part that connects the motor and the transmission, since it was pretty worn. Next time.

I pulled the cap and took a socket wrench turned the stud agit off and removed the upper agitator. Than I assembled the new agitator with the new clogs put the agaiator back on and tightened the stud agit. Replaced new cap and done! Easy job!! Everything is working like new again. This whirlpool washer is 14 years old and still going strong!
It took a lot of surfing the internet to find good web sites for information. One was part select . I removed the cabinet from the washing machine per instructions. Then I replaced the suspension springs. That was easy. Took about 10 minutes. However, it didn't fix the problem. So I decided to replace all the suspension pads without a total tearing down the unit. It was almost impossible to put the new ones in because they don't press in easily. One other thing, there are plastic cups with pins in them that look like they are missing cotter pins. After hours of searching. I found partselect.com THESE ARE THE SHIPPING PINS THAT KEPT THE MACHINE FROM MOVING AROUND DURING SHIPPING. THEY TOOK THE COTTER PINS OUT AFTER SHIPPING. THEY ARE NO LONGER NEEDED. My story ends here because my machine is still shakes violently. I have offered my washing machine for parts on our local freecycle website so as to keep it out of the landfill.
Removed the old parts, Cleaned the area around the gasket and put in the new. Worked great the first time.
Removed the stud bolt in the ag[tator and removed the agitator from the machine. J then seperated the agitator in two pieces and installed the new dogs.I then installed the agitator back in the washing machine and it performed beautifully
Repair very simple, removed the top cap and lower cap, unscrewed the retaning nut. Removed the agitator. The directions supplied with the kit worked great. Reinstalled and worked like new.
pulled cap off agitator, removed inner cap, removed agitator lock down nut, installed the agitator repair kit components, reassembled nut ,inner cap and ag. cap. Easy job -saved approx. $75 - $80 in labor!
I removed the fabric sofner dispenser, then removed the cap on the top of the agitator housing. I then removed the agitator retention bolt with a 3/8 drive craftsman ratchet , a craftsman half inch socket and 10 inch extension. I removed the broken pawls inside the agitator as they had crumbled from age and replaced the old items with the new items in the agitator repair kit and reassembled everything just reversing the steps.
I over ordered parts because this website doesn't list everything in the agitator repair kit... so I over spent about $10... so be careful of misleading parts list when ordering a "kit"... all the parts should be there. All I had to do was pop the top off, pull the cap out, unbolt the agitator and remove it... then put together the new dogs and rotator... ofcourse the kit cap with a new bearing (which wasn't listed on the included parts, so I have a spare for 15 years down the road) Then I lined up the holes, installed a new gasket on the bolt, and bolted it back together.... I also learned that I didn't even need the kit, I only needed new dogs! (that's the part that locks into the teeth on the agitator and caused it to spin and push the cloths down)... could have saved probably $20, but I fixed my washer myself and even though it cost me nearly $40 in parts and I'm sure I saved atleast $100 doing it myself... this site is very easy to navigate and find the parts... I will always come back to this site for parts!
Removed agitator cap. Barrier was stuck, so I cut it in 2 by hammering a big knife in, then removing pieces. Removed screw and ifted out agitator in one piece. Separated top and bottom by standing on bottom and pulling up on top. Put bottom back in washer. Replaced thrust washer and other parts in agitator repair kit. and reassembled everything. (Used Gunk plumbers silicone grease instead of "dual action agitator grease".) Barrier cap came with O ring seal, so did agitator kit, so I didn't need the O ring I ordered. Ended up with 2 extras.
Repair was very easy for me and I have three fingers missing on one of my hands. Video on repair was also very detailed. I ordered three extra parts that were already included in the agitator kit. Would have been nice if all parts were listed that came in the kit and add a small tube of the grease. Delivery time was great! I would order from this company again, I was very pleased. I have already referred a friend to the site for her repairs.
