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.

Grabbed old agitator on bottom and pulled straight up then took a ratchet and socket removed bolt took it off and installed new part and snapper agitator over it.it took about 30 seconds
I removed the center piece in the washer by pulling up on it, removed the retaining bolt and the agitator coupling.Installation reverse of removal...no problems. The spline on the inside of the agitator coupling was worn out.I never would have though about it until I searched the problem on line. I had already decided that I would have to buy a new washer (again)...I had a pressure switch problem about 6 months ago.PartSelect is great...I ordered the parts for both problems from them and I have kept my old washer alive.
I am a mother of 3 so a washing machine is vital. I called various appliance repair places and was quoted anywhere from $50 - $85 just to come and look at it. I did some online research and discovered that the part itself was less than $7. After paying for 2-day shipping, my total was under $20. I thought, what do I have to lose. I received the coupling kit and read the EASY instructions. I had already removed the old one so by the time I received the new one, it took me less than 10 minutes. WOW!! I now have a working washer!! .THINK AGAIN!!
After discovering the agitator floating in the basket and being torn apart from the spin cycle, I finally narrowed the problem down to the coupling having stripped. Removing the old coupling from the agitator itself took a pretty hefty yank and a large pliers, but after that this went pretty easily.The bolt that holds the coupling onto the spline, as it turns out, is too short. The new part corrects this design flaw and prevents the bolt from working its way out over time. I took the liberty of applying some loctite to the threads before sliding the new coupling on--this needed a wood block and hammer to fully seat-several years worth of grime on the spindle makes for a snug fit-then installed the new bolt. Agitator snaps on top, then the cap that had been shredded when it floated around snapped in.Hardest part was getting the failed coupling out of the agitator--design of the unit is not easy to find and thus determine which parts to pull on. Other than that, 15 minutes and this one is done.
***Partselect.com had my ordered part delivered within 3 days.*** First, I pulled up on agitator and removed it. Then, loosened bolt on coupling and removed it. Replaced with new coupling, placed and tightened new longer bolt that came with new coupling. Replaced agitator and started laundry.
took the two screws that holds the instrument selections off retreived the directions from inside this panel and followed directions step by step and removed the spline that makes the machine agitate, seen that the inside of the spline was smooth, ordered part and reversed operation in putting it back together. p.s. make sure the refill shutoff hose is connected as we had forgot to do this and we ran water on the floor, had to take back apart and re-connect thehose . ordering the part and fixing it myself with my sons help saved me a repair bill which I am sure would have cost me at least $75.00 more.
Removed the screws, pulled out the tall skinny thing that rotates, pulled out the broken part, ordered the new one, replaced it, (you have to push down until it snaps into place) Put everything back together and had clean laundry within 45 minutes. Anyone can replace this part.
I removed the agitator by simply pulling up. I then removed one bolt to get the agitator coupler off. I installed the new coupler, replaced the bolt and slid the agitator back down.
I used the "belt" technique to remove the agitator. It was difficult at first to remove but after a few tugs on the belts that were looped under the plastic bottom, the agitator came up. Then I unscrewed the bolt holding the coupler. The agitator coupler kit purchased from PartSelect came with a new screw so I replaced the old coupler with the new one and fitted the new screw in it's place. I put the agitator dasher back on and then it worked perfectly.
took out the agitator then removed the agitator coupli and found out that the coupli was worn out, i then replaced it and everything worked again
I first placed a rope under the fins of the agitator and used a 2X4 board to pull up the agitator which needed very little force to release itself from the agitator coupling. I removed the nut holding the agitator coupling, removed the stripped agitator coupling. Installation was just the reverse process, inserted the new agitator coupling, placed and tightened the screw, and pressed down the agitator over the agitator coupling and I was done. Over time for the repair was between 5 and 10 minutes, very easy, and I have no experience repairing washing machines.
We removed the agitator then the bolt holding couplier. The inside of the plastic couplier had stripped after 5 years. We cleaned around the metal part of the agitator then installed the new GE plastic couplier, put in the bolt & replaced the agitator. The machine works better than ever. The GE website said this part had to be replaced by a certified technician. The estimated service call alone was $80 & the part was not available from the GE website.
I put my fingers under the agitator and pull up , this pulled it off the couplier, then I used a 11mm wrench to remove the bolt that holds the couplier in place and pulled the couplier off, the new couplier didnt arrive until after I went to work but my wife had it all back together when I got back home,I told her what to do and she said it only took about 10 mins. to get together, very easy.
