Agitator stopped working.

Removed power plug from the wall outlet. Removed fabric softener cup and inner cap seal to access the 7/16" bolt. I loosened the bolt and removed the whole agitator. I then placed the agitator on the floor and pulled the two pieces apart. I cleaned both agitator parts in the sink and installed the agitator repair kit using the instructions included and put the two halves back together. I then installed the agitator into the washer and tightened the 7/16" bolt, replaced the inner cap with new seal and inserted the fabric softener cup. I Then ran a load to test the repair.

Top section of agitator slipping on ratcheting dogs

I popped of the fabric softner dispenser at the top auger by appling pressure with both thumbs rather than use the notch provided. This gives access to the agitator mounting bolt which was removed with a deep socket and extension on a ratchet handle. The agitator slipped right off the splined shaft by pulling upward at two points at the bottom. I ordered the complete agitator repair kit which included a part that improved the operation of the top auger, it may have been a factory upgrade at some point on this machine. I did use silicone grease where required and I feel that this is a must for longevity of the thrust washer. If you are ordering the complete kit, the o-ring seal for the inner cap is included. The machine washes like it was new.

Worn down agitator directional cogs

Looking at the Whirlpool web page for this model number it was easy to order 1. agitator directional cogs; 2. Inner cap seal and 3. washer for agitator bolt; After you remove agitator cap barrier you see agitator bolt that you need to remove (it's a little tricky) and the rest you do by intuition. I am not an repairman but looking at the whirlpool web for this model it was incredibly easy. Before repair the agitator upper part was not moving at all. Professional repair estimation was $100.

The "o"ring on the fabric softner inner cap broke when I was cleaning the built-up fabric softner off of the inside of the dispenser and cap. I suspect that it had just gotten old and brittle. I decided to replace the washer lid because the enamel coating was flaking off of the edges of the lid and

The "O" ring just snaps in place. For the lid it was necessary to remove the screws from the hinge on the left side, then extract the hinge rod. Once the hinge rod was removed the lid lifts out. Removed the hinge rod from the right side and installed it on the new lid. Then put the lid back in place, insert the hinge rod into the left side of the lid and replace the screws. Removed the safty switch actuater from the old lid and snapped it in place on the new lid. Done !

Timing tabs securing the agitator center

There are 4 tabs that come from the main agitator body through the center & lock into the centerpiece that holds the directional cogs. They have a tab similar to a cable tie that can only be put on once. They need to be clipped before it will dissassemble & reassembly is difficult because they need to be timed to reattach the round center cog plate. Maybe cut off 2 of them & taper the other 2 them for easier reassembly.

Washing machine was not agitating...

Easily found the Agitator Repair Kit online for a very reasonable price. Swapped out the bad worn down parts for the new ones and presto; cleaner clothes. Researching the right model number was a task, but when the parts showed up and were identical I knew it would be easy. Less than 30 minutes to install with minimal tools. And it was cheap. Even if I called my home warranty co. to come out it would still be a minimal $55 service charge. Well worth it, very pleased, would use PartSelect again.

Once water filled up it would kick off and no action from the agitator..just a buzzing sound..

Following the instructions from the email received from this site was very helpful...given the washers were slightly different then mine in the videos ...it gave me a solid view point of what I would expect...my thrust spacer and the one I was sent was different in length and luckily it wasn't needed for my repair..extremely affordable prices made this no big deal at all..The inner seal was easily exchanged out and the agitator direction cogs were simply replaced..they were a bit wore down but nothing broke...and the reassemble was easy...biggest trouble I had were the clamps holding the switch box on the top they were pretty simple to remove by the instruction video and the direct drive coupler was exactly like the video instructed and was simply replaced..again nothing broke but extreme wear on the inner square was nearly wore to more of a circle shape which I believe was my problem. .The clamps holding the top back in place we're very tricky for me but I got them...plugged everything back up turned it on and the washer filled up and then kicked back into action just like new...I was very happy as well as was my wife to fixed what normally would have been 400 to 500$ repair bill or twice that for a new washer for 4 parts under 30$ and it's now just like new..Thank you !! I will definitely be ordering again from you if and when needed and also give a 100% satisfaction rating to any 1 needing parts..5stars!!!

Socket extension should be at least 10 inches long. Need two people to do the job if the screw is very tight.

Watch the instructions video. Follow the exact instructions carefully.

Top of agitator was not working

I basically followed the video that was available on Partselect.
I had trouble getting the top of the agitator separated from the lower but I used a length of 2x4 and gently tapped this with a hammer (so I wasn't hitting the plastic directly with the hammer, never a good idea). I few taps around the perimeter of the upper agitator and it came apart. The rest was quite easy. I replaced the seal since it looked pretty worn when I first removed the inner cap.

The adgitator was not moving as it should have.

Pulled off the cover on the adgitator then removed the cap inside the adgitator and the one 7/16 bolt holding on the adgitator. Pulled the adgitator top off the base and removed the drive section with the 4 fingers that engaged with the adgitator. Installed the new assembly, put the bolt back in and I was done. My wifes 19 year old kitchenaid washer now works like new and all of that for less then $20. 00
