I pulled up on the agitator with a quick upward jerk to remove the agitator, then I used a 7/16 socket to take the bolt out of the coupling, pulled up on the coupling and removed it. Took the new coupling sit it on top of the shaft, I turned the coupling slowly to line the grooves of the shaft to the grooves on the coupling, then I pushed the coupling down onto the shaft, put new bolt in the coupling and tightened it down, then I lined the agitator grooves up with the grooves on the coupling then pushed agitator down until it snapped in place on the coupling.
I reached under the agitator on two sides with my fingers and with one good upward yank the agitator came loose. I removed the agitator from the inside of the machine, I seen the Agitator Coupling was spinning in both directions so I felt that it may have been broken. I removed the one bolt hold the Agitator Coupling in place, I remove and inspected the Coupling and noticed that the spline was worn out. I cleaned the transmission spine that the Coupling slides over with a wire brush while using a shop vacuum to catch any loose debris. I installed new Agitator Coupling Kit slipped the Agitator back inside the machine over the coupling and pressed it down until it snapped into place. Job done. Machine works great.
Popped the agitator off, removed the bolt, pulled coupler straight up. Reversed steps. Done in under 5 mins.
Easy as it gets. I did this repair while playing Wii with my 8 year old and cooking supper... Still no more than a 10 minute fix.Place a towel on one side of the washer so you won't scratch it.Tie a loop of rope around the middle of the agitator between the upper and lower fins. Wrap the other end of the rope around a 2x4 ( I used a level), or anything similar and wind it around until the 2x4 is pulled down level with the top, keeping one end on the towel. Yank the other end firmly a few times, and the agitator will seperate from the coupling. I had to snatch it pretty hard.I removed the 7/16" bolt from the coupling, pulled it off the spline and replaced it with the new one.The agitator slid right back into place with no trouble, and it is good as new.What seemed like an expensive repair, or even the need for a new appliance was essentially removing one bolt and a replacing a $6 part.Thanks!
I noticed that the agitator would spin without any resistance and must be stripped. I pulled the agitator straight up and it came right off. I then used an open end wrench to remove the bolt securing the agitator coupler to the metal spline. It came right off and was obviously stripped. Upon receiving the new coupler, slipped it straight on and tightened the coupler. Placed the agitator on the coupler and tested the washer, it worked. Very easy. My wife was ready to buy a new washing machine and I fixed it with a six dollar part.
1, remove agitator. 2 on top of the agitiataor coupling you will see a bolt. Rap lightly with a hammer and with vice grips gently remove the bolt. why vice grips if its been in there for awhile this will be your best choice. No worries the kit comes with a new one.3 Pull the coupling sraight up and out. 4. Align the splines of the new coupling with shaft and gently tap the new one on. 5 Lube the oring and tighten bolt. 6 align the splines of the agitator and gently seat the agiator all the way down. might take awhile to align everything. trouble shooting tip remove the front cover, turn machine on and hold the agitator, no, not the kid, the one in the machine. If the agitator stops moving but the machine continues to work and the belt or pump shaft turns its the coupling.
pulled agitator off unscrewed bolt holding coupling on put new coupling on bolt in place put agitator on. washer working good
I took the plastic agitator out and checked the agitator coupling underneath. I unscrewed the agitator coupling and looked inside. It appeared that the grooves on the agitator coupling which attaches to the stem had become stripped. I ordered the $6.00 agitator coupling and screwed it back onto the stem. The plastic agitator slipped back onto the coupler and it worked perfectly after that.
I removed the fabric softener cup and lifted up on the agitaotor till it slid off. I then removed the bolt that held the agitator coupling in place. I then worked the coupling off, wiggling it side to side until it slid off. Then I slid the new coupling on and replaced the bolt. Lined up the agitator and slid it back on. Then replaced the fabric softener cup. Job could not have been any easier.
Agitator came off easily, but the agitator coupling was a little bit hard to remove. I have to yank it hard to be able to remove it. Putting the new part in is a bit hard too. I had to use a hammer to put it in. (with a piece of wood in between). Tried it with a small load and We're back in business. It was a pleasant experience to do business with you guys. Thanks for the quick turnaround.
Slide rope beneath agitator.Pull up with good force..agitator will separate from coupling.Remove screw from coupling.Slide coupling off.Slide on new coupling.Install screw included with the new agitator (Don't use old screw. The new one is a specialty part designed for new coupling)Slide agitator back down over coupling.Done
To get the old agitator off I first used two pieces of laundry line rope to hook under the fins of the agitator on each side. Next I laid a 5 foot long 2 X 4 across the top and tied the ropes on. I filled the washer with 5 or 6 inches of extremely hot water to help loosen everything up and used leverage to pop the old agitator off. After that I used a socket set to remove the bolt from the top of the agitator coupling and took it out. I then put the new coupling in, replaced the bolt and lined up the agitator and slid it back on until it clicked and locked into place. The washer works great.
I was very disappointed that this washing machine was broken since it is the second GE washer I have had in this house and the home is only 11 yrs old. I went to the Parts Select website and used the repair information to diagnose the problem and order the part. The part was about $12 including shipping and arrived in a few days. Installation was quick and easy. Overall a very good experience since I was asssuming a broken transmission and new washer. Thanks Parts Select!
Well finally after breaking through all the rust, (12 yr. Old washer), demolishing the coupler and cutting off the hub nut. We thoroughly cleaned everything with simple green and a power washer. After getting the machine all back together and then remembering where the "dogs" went I am still questioning whether or not the hub nut is tight enough. Nothing that we read on-line told us anything about the torque of the hub nut. We plugged everything in and there is still a small leak coming from just under the tub seal. We torqued the hub nut one more time and now there are no leaks. We did grease the seal. Overall I figured out I saved over $ 600. I was amazed at how fast the parts were delivered from part select. So the only parts I replaced were the tub seal, hub nut and coupler. We are extremely happy with this diy repair and the part select website. Diy done by myself a 67 year old female and 62 year old male. We have never attempted to fix a washer before.
