removed the old one and replaced with new
First and foremost, the job would have taken 2 hrs instead of 8 hrs. The problem was that no one on the help instructions said that the Hub Nut had a LEFT HAND thread and suggested to just break the nut off. Well, after chiseling off most of the nut I drilled small holes through the nut and removed the nut pieces. However; I learned that I had damaged the transmission seal and had to buy a new transmission $183. Had I known this the job would have taken much less time and at a cost of about $50.PS: The washer runs great.
Removed by pulling out. Removed coupling air bell with socket and replaced. Wery well. Thnak you.
Placed a small rope under the agitator and pulled up with a sudden jerk . It popped right up and out . I removed the bolt holding the coupling .I then removed old coupling and replaced with new coupling and bolt. I then installed new agitator pushing down until it clicked into place . All done , less than 15 minutes . Thanks to others that gave their feedback so we could learn what to do .
First I took off the old coupling (one screw). Put the new coupling on, lined up and snapped the new agitator onto the new coupling.Repair took les than 5 minutes. The longest part of the whole process was lining up the agitator to the coupling.
I had help taking off the old parts,coupling was not easy. But I installed the new parts by my self and I'm 74 years had trouble getting the Agitator Coupling back on, But the straps were easy, Any way I'm back to washing again thanks a bunch
unscrewed the old coupling, brushed off yucky build up and replaced, ta da back to washing clothes constantly !
I removed agitator by pulling it up until it unsnaped.I removed the old agitator coupling by removing the bolt and pulling up while twisting it.The new coupling looks different than the old part but fits the same.I pressed the new coupler on to the agitator shaft, reinstalled bolt and pressed agitator on the agitator coupler until it snaped into place.Washer runs like new!

Our GE washer stopped agitating. We bought us a Whirlpool Cabrio washer with auto-sensing and an impeller instead of an agitator. My wife couldn't get used to washing clothes with so little water. We found out about PartSelect.com and ordered the part they indicated would probably fix our GE washer ($5.86) - the Agitator Coupling Kit. Ordered it on Friday, received it by Fed Ex the following Tuesday. It was an easy installation. Our GE is working fine. Took the Whirlpool back to the store, got our $637.00 back.I plan to use PartSelect.com again,if I need to. We don't like the new type washers as well as our 7-1/2 year old GE.
figerout how to take the old one off that was a little hard to do but did it. got the socket set to get the middle undone. clean to out and put the new one in and it works just fine and better then ever.
Replaced the plastic agitator coupler
Reading all the other stories helped me get started. One tip I want to share is when removing the old coupler, I held on to a pulley puller by hand. I hooked the jaws underneath; while I pulled up on it, I would tap with a hammer on either side of the old coupler. This gave me the leverage needed to make it pop right off.
After doing some troubleshooting, I found that the Air Bell was stripped inside. First I removed the agitator by firmly pulling it straight up. Then I removed the bolt holding the air bell (agitator coupling) with a ratchet. Then came the hard part. The air bell (agitator coupling) was stuck on the shaft and would not come off. I used rope to lasso under the coupling and tied it to a 2x4 for leverage and eventually wrestled it off by using an upward jolting motion time and time again. Spraying WD-40 in the coupling seemed to help loosen it up. Prior to installation, I cleaned the grooves of the shaft by scraping them out with a flat tip screw driver. Installed the new coupling by tapping it down with a hammer until it was seated firmly and locked it down with the new bolt. Aligned the agitator and slid it down until it latched. Done!
