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:
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.
First, I removed the agitator by reaching in the washing machine and pulling up on the agitator until it popped off. Next, I removed the 1/4" bolt that attached the coupling to the spline. Then I removed the coupling. After removing it, I replaced it with a new one, installed a new bolt, and reattached the agitator. It took 2 days for me to get the part(ordered on a Sun)but only took me 10 minutes to repair.
The project was pretty easy. After removing the11 screws on the inside of the door , the handle assembly was right in the open.I unplugged the 2 switches and installed the new handle.Parts Select diagrams made it easy to find the right parts.Thanks, Len
I lifted the agitator stragiht up. removed agitator coupling bolt w/pliers. went on Partselect.com to order replacement coupling, which supplied me with exploded diagrams, entered part number in box at the bottom of the screen and waited 2 days. It then took me less than 5 minitues to complete.
First pulled the element 4 inches then removed one screw size 7/16 wrench then put new part alligetor copling
I'm happy I looked at the motor spline while it was running and found it was not slipping. Thanks to GE having a parts list in the compartment behind the controls. I found the part name and number. A quick search of the part number came up with your web site. I payed less for the parts and shipping than driving around town would have cost in gas, much less my time. Thank you
Removed the agetater removed a nut on top of the coupler> Then I removed the coupler put the new one one replaced the nut and the agetater. I receved the new part in two days. Great service I would recomend to a freind and also use parts select again. Thanks very much.
Placed hands fiemly on agitator, at bottom, gave a snug pull and removed it from machine, thus exposing the agitator coupling. The coupling is held to main shaft by 1 bolt(11 mm, I think). Removed it, pulled off stripped coulping, installed new, installed bolt, lined up splines on agitator and slid on untill it "clicked" back into place. All done.
Husband took the machine apart. We found your website - put in the parts number...and up pops a picture! Very cool! We ordered and the machine was fixed within 4 days - easy smooth! I would highly recommend this site. The part shipped out the day we ordered the part!
First I removed the dasher by placing rope around the fins of the dasher. Wrapped the rope around a 2 x 4 approximately the width of the washer. Standing on the washer I pulled up on the board and presto. Up came the dasher, removed the bolt out of the bell, removed the bell. New part came in the next day after the order was placed! Great service. To install the new bell, used the new bolt sent with the part. Centered and aligned the dasher on the bell. Pushed down and locked in place. Turned on washer and started filling with water. Washed clothes within 15 minutes from start to finish.
Was easy to remove the broken parts because they were loose already due to the broken finger in the agitator. It was good that I ordered the coupling kit because the bolt showed corrosion already. With the new parts I was able to see how they all clipped on together so I set myself to unbolted the coupling, install the new coupling, tighten it, alined the agitator to it, pushed into place and,... vuahla!!! fitted and worked like a charm.
