The agitator coupler connects the agitator to the agitator shaft. Common symptoms of a damaged coupler include: a grinding sound during the wash cycle, the washer refusing to agitate or spin, or the washing machine shakes and moves during the wash cycle. Unplug the washer and pull the agitator straight up. Remove the bolt that holds the coupler onto the shaft of the transmission and pull the coupler off. Be sure to clean any dirt, rust, or residue off the transmission spline grooves, and make sure the grooves on the agitator splines are clean and undamaged. We recommend using the gasket and bolt that come with the replacement coupling.

Washer wouldn't agitate, but everything else worked.

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.

Would not agitate

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.

Agitator was loose and not agitating

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).

Agitator stoped moving

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.

Agitator spun freely(wouldn't engage)

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.

Handle broke

The project was pretty easy. After removing the
11 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

Would spin but not agitate

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

Agitator coupling stripped out, machine wouldnt agitate

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.
