Agitator would not agitate, but the shaft was working. Agitator coupling stripped out

I pulled up on the agitator with a quick upward jerk to remove the agitator, then I used a 7/16 socket to take the bolt out of the coupling, pulled up on the coupling and removed it. Took the new coupling sit it on top of the shaft, I turned the coupling slowly to line the grooves of the shaft to the grooves on the coupling, then I pushed the coupling down onto the shaft, put new bolt in the coupling and tightened it down, then I lined the agitator grooves up with the grooves on the coupling then pushed agitator down until it snapped in place on the coupling.

Agitator not working.

Easy as it gets. I did this repair while playing Wii with my 8 year old and cooking supper... Still no more than a 10 minute fix.

Place a towel on one side of the washer so you won't scratch it.

Tie a loop of rope around the middle of the agitator between the upper and lower fins. Wrap the other end of the rope around a 2x4 ( I used a level), or anything similar and wind it around until the 2x4 is pulled down level with the top, keeping one end on the towel.

Yank the other end firmly a few times, and the agitator will seperate from the coupling. I had to snatch it pretty hard.

I removed the 7/16" bolt from the coupling, pulled it off the spline and replaced it with the new one.

The agitator slid right back into place with no trouble, and it is good as new.

What seemed like an expensive repair, or even the need for a new appliance was essentially removing one bolt and a replacing a $6 part.

Thanks!

CustomerGreg from The Woodlands TX

Washing machine would not agitate

I noticed that the agitator would spin without any resistance and must be stripped. I pulled the agitator straight up and it came right off. I then used an open end wrench to remove the bolt securing the agitator coupler to the metal spline. It came right off and was obviously stripped. Upon receiving the new coupler, slipped it straight on and tightened the coupler. Placed the agitator on the coupler and tested the washer, it worked. Very easy. My wife was ready to buy a new washing machine and I fixed it with a six dollar part.

Agitator not spiining under load

1, remove agitator. 2 on top of the agitiataor coupling you will see a bolt. Rap lightly with a hammer and with vice grips gently remove the bolt. why vice grips if its been in there for awhile this will be your best choice. No worries the kit comes with a new one.3 Pull the coupling sraight up and out. 4. Align the splines of the new coupling with shaft and gently tap the new one on. 5 Lube the oring and tighten bolt. 6 align the splines of the agitator and gently seat the agiator all the way down. might take awhile to align everything.
trouble shooting tip remove the front cover, turn machine on and hold the agitator, no, not the kid, the one in the machine. If the agitator stops moving but the machine continues to work and the belt or pump shaft turns its the coupling.

Machine would not agitate. Everything else seemed to be working fine.

I removed the fabric softener cup and lifted up on the agitaotor till it slid off. I then removed the bolt that held the agitator coupling in place. I then worked the coupling off, wiggling it side to side until it slid off. Then I slid the new coupling on and replaced the bolt. Lined up the agitator and slid it back on. Then replaced the fabric softener cup. Job could not have been any easier.

Agitator is not turning

Agitator came off easily, but the agitator coupling was a little bit hard to remove. I have to yank it hard to be able to remove it. Putting the new part in is a bit hard too. I had to use a hammer to put it in. (with a piece of wood in between). Tried it with a small load and We're back in business. It was a pleasant experience to do business with you guys. Thanks for the quick turnaround.

CustomerBrenda from Sachse TX

The washer would fill with water, drain and spin but the agitator would not work. It would just wobble around.

To get the old agitator off I first used two pieces of laundry line rope to hook under the fins of the agitator on each side. Next I laid a 5 foot long 2 X 4 across the top and tied the ropes on. I filled the washer with 5 or 6 inches of extremely hot water to help loosen everything up and used leverage to pop the old agitator off. After that I used a socket set to remove the bolt from the top of the agitator coupling and took it out. I then put the new coupling in, replaced the bolt and lined up the agitator and slid it back on until it clicked and locked into place. The washer works great.

Agitator was not moving (agitating)

I was very disappointed that this washing machine was broken since it is the second GE washer I have had in this house and the home is only 11 yrs old. I went to the Parts Select website and used the repair information to diagnose the problem and order the part. The part was about $12 including shipping and arrived in a few days. Installation was quick and easy. Overall a very good experience since I was asssuming a broken transmission and new washer. Thanks Parts Select!

Leaking from the tub seal- g.E. Profiler washer

WELL FINALLY AFTER BREAKING THROUGH ALL THE RUST, (12 YR. OLD WASHER), DEMOLISHING THE COUPLER AND CUTTING OFF THE HUB NUT. WE THOROUGHLY CLEANED EVERYTHING WITH SIMPLE GREEN AND A POWER WASHER. AFTER GETTING THE MACHINE ALL BACK TOGETHER AND THEN REMEMBERING WHERE THE "DOGS" WENT I AM STILL QUESTIONING WHETHER OR NOT THE HUB NUT IS TIGHT ENOUGH. NOTHING THAT WE READ ON-LINE TOLD US ANYTHING ABOUT THE TORQUE OF THE HUB NUT. WE PLUGGED EVERYTHING IN AND THERE IS STILL A SMALL LEAK COMING FROM JUST UNDER THE TUB SEAL. WE TORQUED THE HUB NUT ONE MORE TIME AND NOW THERE ARE NO LEAKS. WE DID GREASE THE SEAL. OVERALL I FIGURED OUT I SAVED OVER $ 600. I WAS AMAZED AT HOW FAST THE PARTS WERE DELIVERED FROM PART SELECT. SO THE ONLY PARTS I REPLACED WERE THE TUB SEAL, HUB NUT AND COUPLER. WE ARE EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH THIS DIY REPAIR AND THE PART SELECT WEBSITE. DIY DONE BY MYSELF A 67 YEAR OLD FEMALE AND 62 YEAR OLD MALE. WE HAVE NEVER ATTEMPTED TO FIX A WASHER BEFORE.

CustomerBetty from Ventura CA

Washing machine did not agitate

My husband remove the agitator and found that it was worn. I googled the problem and one of the websites that came up was PartSelect. My husband watched the easy to follow video and had me order the Agitator Coupling Kit. It arrived in just two days. It took him 15 minutes to install and I started washing immediately. It cost us $13.22 and saved us $800 to $1200 if a new washing machine would of had to be purchased. The washer is 15 years old and now with this repair will hopefully continue to wash for a few more years! Thank you PartSelect!

CustomerKevin from Charlotte NC

Washer was making a screeching noise

Using the diagrams from the website, I was trying to determine the source of the noise. Thought I was losing the clutch, but then determined from your website that this model has no clutch. Turned out to be a couple of pieces from the agitator coupling had broken off, and were riding between the agitator and the tub. Cleaned out the plastic and the washer worked. Then ordered and replaced the coupling. Would have only taken about 15 minutes, but I dropped a screw down in the outer tub, and had to fish it out.
