Agitator would not turn during wash cycle

First raise the lid on the washer then remove the agitator by placing hands under the agitator 180 degrees apart and pulling up. Pulling up one side and then the other until the agiator lifts up and off. Mine was stuck tight so I had to really work it back and forth to get it loose. Be careful while lifting on the agitator because when it comes loose it could hit you in the face since you are over it while lifting. Once you get the agitator off use a 7/16 socket and 3/8 rachet and remove the coupling. Place the new coupling on the shaft, making sure to line up the splines on the shaft and the coupling and install the 7/16 bolt and thighten it. Place the agitator on the coupling by lining up the splines and pushing down on the agitator until it seats. Time to repair was 30 minutes.

Agitator was no turning

Repaired Agitator - required to pull from the bottom pulling on one side a little more then the other. Once you got loose it comes right off. Under neith there is a bolt that holds on agitator coupler. remove the bolt with wrench or socket wrench and then the agaitator coupler. Replace with new agitator coupler ,make sure grooves are aligned when putting on the rotor. Tap the top of the agitator coupler lightly until it is completely seated. Put the bolt on with wrench or socket wrench. Put the agitator back on over the agitator coupler and agin make sure grooves are alighned and push down until it feels it is seated. When done, give it a light pull to make sure it is secure and then you are done.

Agitator in washing machine not moving

First, I removed the liquid softner dispenser cup from the agitator. Next I gripped the bottom of the agitator and pulled straight up. This was the most difficult part of the repair. Next, I removed the couplier bolt with the appropriate size socket wrench. And then removed the couplier from the transmission shaft. This exposed the shaft. Upon receipt of parts from Part Select, I proceed to install in the reverse order. I slide the new couplier back onto the transmission shaft. and bolted down with new bolt using the original socket wrench. Next I slide on the new agitator making sure the "tongue and groves" matched. Then I placed the liquid softner cup back onto the new agitator. And with great joy my washer is working once more. Thank you Parts Select.
