Washing machine agitator drive bell with bolt. It connects the transmission drive shaft to the agitator base. *NOTE: Hold down bolt not sold separately.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
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.

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.
This was a very simple repair. I Pulled straight up on the agitator until it popped off. Then unscrewed the bolt that holds the coupling in place. Due to some corrosion and crud, it took a little effort to get the coupling off. Then I spent a couple minutes cleaning the tub and shaft. The new coupling slid on easily. I attached it with the new bolt, then put the agitator back on and pressed down until it snapped into place.
Popped the agitater off the coupler by using belt slipped under agitater and pulling up sharply. Unbolted coupler but it was stuck. Put agitater back on minus the bolt. Put a couple towels into washer ran a small load, soon as it started to agitate I could hear a sound and I found both pieces had came off the splined shaft. Hard part was over.
This was an easy fix. I popped off the agitator, un bolted the agitator couplier and replaced it with the new one. The part arrived in 2 days, the job took 2 minuites. No calling or driving around to find the part, no service charge or repair bill. washer working like new!!
Replaced the agitator coupling in about 5 minutes, there was only one bolt and it went back togeather. THANK YOU Parts Select..........
Popped the agitator off, removed the bolt, pulled coupler straight up. Reversed steps. Done in under 5 mins.
First I yanked off the agitator. Then I undid the bolt holding the coupler onto the center of the machine. Took the worn down coupler off, replaced it with the new coupler and bolt. Good as new. GE was going to charge me $85 just for a someone to walk through the door. After parts and labor I am sure they would have charged me $200. I did it on my own for $20 (had the part rush shipped so that was twice the price of the part).
I first looked it up on the Internet to see what would be the most simplest way of doing ... I found that brut force was the answer . Take the fabric softner cap off the top of the agitator then with both hands pull the whole agitator up with a lot of force. Once this is done you'll be able to see the coupling and a 7/16 bolt ( 1/4-20 ). Holding it to the metal shaft. Take the bolt out put the new nonestripped coupling in and the rest is a walk in the park.
