CustomerJohn from Erial NJ

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.

CustomerFrank from Hampton NH

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.

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.

CustomerSarah L. from DeFuniak Springs FL

The top part of the agitator was slipping. I almost bought a new washing machine

I took the top cap off of the agitator. I removed the bolt (1) in the shaft with a 7/16 socket, extention and ratchet. I held the bottom of the agitator while I pulled the top part out, turned it upside down and took out the cap, part that holds in the dog ears and removed the dog ears. The dog ears were almost completely stripped out so they were not grabbing and holding the teeth on the inside of the agitator shaft to keep it from slipping. The dog ears were the only thing bad but I replaced all the parts that came with the kit anyway. I didn't notice there was also a seal in the kit so I bought an inner seal that I didn't need but I'll keep it just in case I need it again. I replaced the seal around the inner cap (which was also bad). I put the agitator back in after I replaced the parts (which was super easy) screwed the bolt back in, put the inner seal back in place and pushed in down to lock it in, that keeps the water from getting in where the dog ears are. It works just like new. I would have liked to had a larger capacity washer but couldn't reallyl afford to do that at this time. The parts were cheap and the rapair was super easy. I am happy I could do it myself and saved a lot of money by not having a repairman come out.
To all you do it yourselfer's, GO FOR IT! I is only as hard as you make it.

Thank you
Sarah

Stripped agitator dogs

Replaced them with the agitator cam kit. It was easy. Hard to get the upper agitator half off of the lower but that was what the husband is for LOL. With his muscle and your "how to videos", it was a snap. If something else breaks this is the first place Im going to to see if I can repair it. This repair cost a whopping $24 and I actually could have gotten away a lot cheaper but bought an extra washer and bolt which I probably didnt need but replaced anyway. I thought we were going to have to get a new washing machine. No way. Machine is working as good as ever. Thank you, thank you XXXOOO

Agitator "knobs, gator teeth things " did not engage

Step one . two , I was surprised that it went so well. You still have to be careful when seating the new agitator assbly. At first I thought I had the wrong kit..but you have to line up into slots in the Auger.. Trust me it works

CustomerCharles from Placentia CA

Upper half of agitator did not rotate.

There was a video on the web providing instruction. The longest part of this repair was cleaning the old agitator of soap and fabric softener scum. Once that part complete, installation went smoothly. Didn't realize that the thrust spacer and o-ring for the internal cap came with the kit as it wasn't listed on the kit part list, so I purchased those separately. Not a big deal as it was only a couple of dollars and not enough to worry about. Part Select does an excellent job in making sure you have the right parts and break out drawings to show exactly what's needed to complete the repair. This is the third or fourth experience with them and the accuracy and quick response more than met my needs.

CustomerSteven from Brentwood CA

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 !
