I just ordered the complete agitator kit since I didn't know for sure what I all needed, and it made my repair so easy replacing since it was all complete. I followed video which was a great help. Got it all done in 25 minutes. Very easy. Thank you...
Removed softener dispenser, removed part under that to reveal bolt that holds agitator on to washer. Figured out there was more to the problem than just the dog ear things and had to end up getting a whole new agitator. Probably saved us $60 minimum in labor and trip charge and was a piece of cake! Took my husband less than 15 mins. to remove old agitator and put on new one. Geez, I guess I have to do laundry again!
I took out the softner dispencer and there is a bolt under tthe the plastic cover,I removed the bolt and the whole assembly came out,then I installed the new one and reinstlled the bolt and plastic cover,and reinserted the liquid softner dispencer.All only took about fifteen min.
I was emboldened after reading other reviews by how easy it was to replace the agitator in my Whirlpool, with comments like "it took less than an hour". Well, that might be true for some... The video also made it look easy, so I ordered the replacement part. I did not disassemble the machine in advance but I did enough troubleshooting to determine that the clutch was fine, but the agitator failed to spin during operation. When the part arrived I followed the video, but I was unable to loosen the retaining bolt. The failure of the agitator was a result of stripped gear on the inside of the agitator, so it just spun loosely or, during the wash cycle, not at all. Because the gear teeth failed to grip, I was unable to use the agitator to hold the shaft stationary while loosening the attaching bolt. My only option was to cut the plastic agitator away from the shaft using a rotary cutter, being careful not to damage the shaft or the bolt. This was a painful, time consuming job but, with patience, it can be done. Have a shop vac handy because you'll have to stop on numerous occasions to vacuum up plastic pieces and dust, so they don't slip through the small holes in the drum and clog your drain. The problem was compounded because during the initial installation they had used excessive amounts of Loctite and the bolt was glued pretty tightly to the shaft. Anyway, after approx. 4 hours of troubleshooting/repair work the washer is back in operation, and I still saved money on the deal, so I'm a satisfied customer..
I removed the Softner dispenser and used a socket wrench to remove the entire agitator. Then replaced it with the new one. It was so worth doing it myself. I cost us about $50.00 and that would have been the cost of having a service call. without parts and labor. I was thankful that it was an easy job and one that I could figure out. It saved us a ton of money. Since I don't know the names of any of the parts on this machine, it was nice to have pictures that go along with the parts online. It allowed me to order the correct part.
My husband pulled out the old agitator and popped in the new one with the fabric softener part on top. Very simple
It was very simple. Took one socket with extention, and slipped the new agitator on and but bolt back in the tightened and that was it.
The part came in the mail. We (my daughter(12 years old) and I) opened the box. Took the part out and measured it (the description didn't fit the requirements). It turned out to be the correct part. My daughter undid the retaining bolt and pulled out the old agitator. We compared the the parts side by side, and everything matched. We put the new part in, aligned the splines, and reinstalled the retaining bolt. Everything went perfectly.Thanks,Tim and Briley Fenner
