This part fixes the following symptoms:
Popped the agitator cap with a flathead screwdriver. Removed the dust cap, tearing the o-ring in the process. Removed the bolt that holds the agitator in place, removed the whole agitator. Pulled the top portion of the agitator off, removed the dog housing and all pieces of the broken dog pieces. Replaced them, and put it all back together in reverse order. Pretty straight forward repair. Works great!

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!
Although this was listed as 'a bit difficult' and talking a bit longer than normal, this was because the agitator cap had leaked, and over time the agitator bolt had become completely rusted such that a socket simply couldn't fit. Due to the tight confines, I also could not get a needle-nose vise-grip to hold on to the nut, so attempted to drill out the bolt. This ended up being a problem, but it turns out that drilling AROUND the edge of the bolt and through the edge of the plastic allowed me to remove the top of the agitator, which then allowed a normal pair of vise-grips to be used to remove the bolt. Once the bolt is removed, everything simply fell into place, and the overall job 'should' have only taken a couple of minutes and been 'really easy', except for that rusted-out bolt.
I removed the cap over the ratchet mechanism, removed the ut holding the agitator in place, removed the agitator and cleaned all the parts. The assembly for the ratchet dogs was a 3 piece assembly that was included in the kit I bought from Part Select. I also bought a new cap and gasket since my old gasket had broken too. A new gasket was already included in the kit, so I didn't need ot buy the cap. I liked that th ekit included everything I needed and good instructions. parts got to me in about 3 days. Very happy with my Parts Select experience and the fact I saved at least $100.
First I removed the top cap on the agitator, then I removed the second cap inside the agitator. I moved the agitator with my hands and saw that the "dog ears" were worn and no longer touched the agitator and couldn't move it. I then used a nut driver to remove the nut that held the top portion of the agitator onto the bottom portion. I made a note of the worn parts, got online at PartsSelect.com and ordered the replacement parts. A few days later the parts arrived and I repeated the above process in reverse using the new parts. It now works like new!!! It wasn was very easy. Thanks!!!
I clean out the fabric softner dispenser on my machine on a regular basis and found the seal split. After looking at several sites to try and find this part, I found this one. Ordering couldn't have been easier and repair only required pulling up the cup for the softner and installing the cap. Thanks for making finding part so easy . . . .
Repairing the agitator was easy.Removed the upper housing and 1 bolt.Change the ratcheting mechanism, reinstall, done.Changing the pump was a bit more involved.Had to remove the shell.The old pump was rusted on to the motorbut with the help of some PB Blaster, screwdrivers and a hammer I was able to get it off.No more leaks on the floor and the clothes actually agitate instead of remaing stationary.For less than a Plumbers 1 hour of labor I was able to repair it myself and will probably get another 5 years out of this washer. Will it ever die?
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...
Took old agitator apart. Seen worn parts inside. Found parts select online. Website found my parts I needed. Fed-Ex had them to me the next day. Installed new parts. Website even had a nice video on how to install them. very easy!

I unscrewed the agitator and pulled it out. Then took out the old agitator cam kit and put in the new one.
I have a 5 and a half year old Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II washer and water started leaking out the bottom of the machine and the top part of the agitator was not turning. Of course the extended warranty had just expired and I was not expecting these types of problems to happen to a Whirlpool Gold Appliance that is just a little over 5 years old. At any rate, I am not a handy man and was ready to order a new washing machine, probably a totally different brand and throw this old Whirlpool out on the street, but I stumbled upon this site and some online videos that made repairing a washer seem easy and it inspired me to try and fix it myself for a change. I had followed the water pump repair instructional video on the partselect.com website. The only difference is my washer had two screws in the back of the console to be unscrewed first before I could flip the console up with the putty knife. Next, I took the screw driver and took off the clips and opened the unit and used the pliers just like in the video to clamp the hoses, flip the clips up and remove the old water pump and slide the new water pump on, then clamped the hoses on the new water pump, put the clips back over the water pump and I put the machine back together in 45 minutes. No more leaking from the bottom of the washer. Then, I used an 11mm extension socket wrench to unscrew the top agitator. I changed the agitator barrier seal that was busted and the directional Agitator Cogs aka (Dog Ears) in the agitator that took about 25 minutes and I was done, just plop out the old ones and put the new ones in facing the same directon. The old Dog Ears were worn down and that is why it was not agitating. Now the machine agitates the clothes and the top part of the agitator is not just sitting in one spot anymore. It was the best $40 bucks I spent on all the parts and it saved me the cost of a brand new washer and I still have my matching set the Whirlpool Gold Washer and Whirlpool Gold Dryer. There are a lot of free how-to type videos online that can show anyone how to repair a Whirlpool or any other brand washer because they are all basically similar under the hood if you have the old top load washer. If I can do it, then anyone can. Good Luck!!!
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.
Repairs went well.....it took less than 10 mins...just followed picture diagram....and test....and it worked well>>>.
