CustomerRichard from Ranburne, AL

The agitator coupling in my washer was stripped out.

I had already removed the old coupling by removing pulling the agitator straight up off the coupling, then I removed the bolt that held the coupling in, and pulled the coupling up off the shaft.
I placed the new coupling on the shaft and pushed it down until it seated, put in the new bolt that came with the coupling, replaced the agitator, and was washing clothes within 10 minutes.
On time delivery, right part, complete with instructions.
Good job.

Agitator not working

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.

Agitator was no longer moving

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!!

Washer not agitating

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.
