Thanks to the Internet and places like PARTSELECT.COM, I can buy the parts I need and not have to call a shysters repairman to rip me off. PS.com provided me with the parts I wanted without disputing me. They also provide simple, clear, and to the point instructions for replacing the old parts. Even someone doubting their own ability can handle a complicated repair. PS.com not only has the major parts that fail, like motors, but also the little things like switches, knobs, trims, handles, seals, and all the other minor parts.
loosened half inch bolt that held agitator in place. removed old and dropped in new.
one bolt in middle of the agitator. everything pulls straight out. spacer is on top of the other agitator. the top agitator if you turn upside down the clogs are under it. there is a black spacer that holds the clogs in place. the clogs will only work one way. put black spacer back on. put top agitatar back on top of bottom agitator. screw bolt back on and your done. turn washer on and see if everything is working well.
Repair very simple, removed the top cap and lower cap, unscrewed the retaning nut. Removed the agitator. The directions supplied with the kit worked great. Reinstalled and worked like new.
remove top with screwdriver. used coat hanger to remove upper seal and cap. removed screw with nutdriver and extension and rachet. installed new parts and reversed procedure. Partselect.com is great.
I had to find a point of reference first since item came apart in wash cycle and internal pieces fell out - thank goodness for YOUTUBE. Another guy was thoughtful enough to do a video on how the assembly came apart / went back together - a huge help for sure. Actual repair was less than a half hour after obtaining new part and seeing video. The 12 year old washer works like brand new - saving me close to 1,000 dollar replacement charges.
used repair kit and worked great and saved me buying a new washer. thanks for having these parts.
I had the agitator apart when I ordered the parts. I found PartSelect online when looking for a source for parts. I didn't know anything about this company but thought I would try them. The parts person was friendly and helpful. The parts showed up just a few days later. I was surprised at such fast delivery. Even if I didn't know how to reassemble the agitator very thorough instructions were included.The repair was a success. I highly recommend this company and will use them again myself. Thank you so much. Rod Benjamin
Followed the instructions in the package and was done in ten minutes or less. Simple to do. Agitates like new and was donated to a needy family. Thank you for the great service. Also the thrust washer is included in the Agitator repair kit so don't need to order one.

I used a socket wrench to remove the bolt holding the agitator assembly together. Removed the assembly and replaced Upper Agitator, Agitator Agitator Repair Kit with new parts using the instructions enclosed. I did purchase extra Agitator Directional Cogs and a thrust spacer to have as spare. It was so easy a caveman can do it ;)
Removed the cap, removed the bolt, pulled off the top assembly off the agitator, removed the broken pieces of the old "Agitator Directional Cogs" and the "Thrust Spacer”, applied some lithium grease, and re-assembled it all in reverse order w/ the new parts...piece of cake.
I removed the center bolt that holds it in place.Removed the old agitating unit and installed the new parts. Very simple.I was more then happy with the ordering and repairing.I will deffinetly use this system again
