These agitator directional cogs are commonly referred to as dog ears. They come four to a package and are usually used with direct drive washing machines.

I removed the fabric softener cup and then removed the bolt holding agitator in place. Took off the top portion of the agitator, the auger, and removed loose broken pieces. Broke off agitator base tabs as indicated on installation instructions. Replaced dogs into slots of agitator cam. Replaced bearing as indicated and reassembled agitator. Instructions provided made the job, even for a novice, very easy to do. Very good service from this company. Will do business again with Parts Select.
With the repair kit and socket.
Repairs went well.....it took less than 10 mins...just followed picture diagram....and test....and it worked well>>>.
first you have to remove the cover to the agitator. then you have to remove the cap over the bolt. then remove the bolt and remove the agitator. the next part was very difficult - you have to seperate the top of the agitator from the bottom. there are two little clips that i ended up heating the end of a screw driver and melting them so i could pull it off. be very careful when pulling it off some people have hit themselves in the face (me!!) remove the dogs and retaining ring and replace. then put everything back together the in reverse order. we figure it would have cost us at least $150 for someone to come and fix this - it cost a little over $20.
Replaced worn parts with new ones ordered from your web site.
Unbeleivably easy, thanks to the parts being available. Twenty bucks in parts and saved me on buying a new machine. Awesome website, great pics on parts!
This was a whole lot easier then I thought it was gonna be. I used an extension with a 7/16th socket to pull the mounting bolt and popped out the agitator assembly. I assembled the dogbones into the replacement head by comparing it to the old one. Replaced the thrust washer, which I had bought an extra because I didn't know it came in the kit. No matter, lined it all up and put it back in, reinstalled the bold and checked to make sure the dogbones were grabbing. Ran a test load and it worked great. Now, when I say less then 15 minutes i mean it. It took me longer to find a long extension to get to the bolt. I am by no means a washing machine repair person. This washer belongs to my widowed mom who was in the process of saving for a new washer so I took it apart and did some troubleshooting, ordered the parts from Partsselect and "BAM" it's working fine and cost me about 20 bucks. I did give my mom some advice on overloading the washer so it doesn't happen again.
pulled the softner dispenser off removed the 1\4 inch bolt removed the bad parts, installed the new kit and put it back together. Piece of cake.
There was a video on the web providing instruction. The longest part of this repair was cleaning the old agitator of soap and fabric softener scum. Once that part complete, installation went smoothly. Didn't realize that the thrust spacer and o-ring for the internal cap came with the kit as it wasn't listed on the kit part list, so I purchased those separately. Not a big deal as it was only a couple of dollars and not enough to worry about. Part Select does an excellent job in making sure you have the right parts and break out drawings to show exactly what's needed to complete the repair. This is the third or fourth experience with them and the accuracy and quick response more than met my needs.
I used a 7/16 socket and a 8" extension on a 3/8 drive ratchet. Took the bolt out pulled the agitator dropped the old part out , dropped the new part in . Even with assembling the new parts which had excellent instructions took about 20 min. to fix the problem. Now Mommas happy thanks to PartSelect.Got the parts in two days really fast and saved a bunch of money.
I removed the top cover of the auger and then pulled out the cap and seal. Removed the agitator mounting bolt and lifed the whole assembly out. If you are new at this just follow the instructions that are very well put togother to help if you have not done this before. For me I use to do HVAC and Appliance Repair work so that made this easy repairs for me.
