The agitator coupler connects the agitator to the agitator shaft. Common symptoms of a damaged coupler include: a grinding sound during the wash cycle, the washer refusing to agitate or spin, or the washing machine shakes and moves during the wash cycle. Unplug the washer and pull the agitator straight up. Remove the bolt that holds the coupler onto the shaft of the transmission and pull the coupler off. Be sure to clean any dirt, rust, or residue off the transmission spline grooves, and make sure the grooves on the agitator splines are clean and undamaged. We recommend using the gasket and bolt that come with the replacement coupling.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Resigning myself to the fact that the washer was broken and I would need to buy a new one, I decided to pull it apart to see if I could see what the problem was (why not if your getting a new one anyway) Once I muscled the agitator off and undid the screw I discovered that the agitator coupler sat on a metal piece that had grooves. Alas...the coupler was worn...there were no grooves left inside the plastic piece. Wondering if I could even find this part I wondered onto this website, plugged in the part number and there it was with pictures and measurements and cheap! Needless to say I ordered it, why not, if it doesn't work I will buy a washer anyway. The part arrived within days. I unpacked the box, opened the plastic, slid it into place, tightened the new screw, replaced the agitator, plugged it back in, started it up and the washing machine was agitating like new. I wrote this long story because the repair was so easy it's not even funny, and I was just going to buy a new washer...

it wasn't as hard as i thought it would be. just remove theparts don to the agitator coupling press back on the steel spline after inspection and cleaning put the bolt back and the washer was back working like new.
Removed center hub and agitator with a sharp tug upward ( no tool required) then using a 3/8 drive and 7/16 socket I removed the stripped coupling and replaced with new one. Total repair time was less then 15 min. 10 of then were spent search web page and watching DIY video clip.
This model did not quite go as in the video on this site. The agitator just pulls up off the coupler. Removed the old, put on new, including new bolt that came with it, snapped the agitator back on, viola!
took the old bolt and coupling off replaced with the new one and it's agitating great. I watched the video on the this website that explained how to do it and it was real easy and a cheap fix!
Took the top cup off the agitator, popped out the agitator by grabbing it with both hands and yanking, unscrewed the nut to the agitator coupling, put the new one on and tightened it up, popped the agitator back on. Works great no problems. Though I did find out that the factory had changed the part sometime ago and it actually did need to be replaced.
Repair was so simple. I used both hands to pull of the inside assembly of the washing machine. Loosened bolt with a pair of pliers. Replaced worn out agitator with new one along with new bolt. I tightened the bolt and pur back on the inside assembly and was done in less than five minutes. The part came to my house in only three days and the instructions were easy to read and understand!
Reaching into the washer I placed both hands on the bottom of the agitater 180 degrees apart and lifted the agitater straight up out of the tub. Using a 7/16 socket I removed the coupling kit. The new one slid right on. I secured it with the new bolt supplied with the kit. The agitater went right back on the new coupler and I was done. Fast, simple and inexpensive. Thanks so much to Part Select.
easy to repair. instructions (with pictures) were included with the part. part came super fast.
I was searching the web and came across this site. I ordered my part that was needed, on Thursday and received it on Saturday. I was very pleased with the quick shipment and price of the part as was my wife. I had it back together in 5 minutes . Thanks Paul Stone
removed agitator and coupling, found splines stripped. replaced coupling and installed agitator.
It was really simple just pull up the agitator and take off the screw that holds the coupling down slide it off and put the new coupling on and you are done.
Getting the agitator out was the biggest hurdle. It was good to have the info from others that had the same problem. I ended up using a nylon strap with a buckle(used on a suitcase when you travel)and putting it under the bottom of the agitator and using a two by four as a lever. Leaning on it and even putting most of my weight on it didn't do it. Finally I took a rubber sledge hammer and pounded the end of the board three or four times and it popped off. Replacing the coupling was a piece of cake, as was puttting it back together. Unfortunately when I ran the cycle it still didn't agitate (88% chance coupling was the prob) So next I took the front off and checked the belt ...... it was fine. Probably the clutch or the motor ...... washer is too old to pay to have either of those replace. I replaced the dial (since I had the part anyway) It also was very difficult to pry off and I broke the plastic ring in the process ........
first i removed the spindle and theni removed theplastic coupling
Unplugged washing machine pulled Agitator strait up removed screw from center of Agitator coupling . Replaced coupling put Agitator back on plugged in and done.
