This is a genuine OEM thrust spacer for your washer, and is also commonly known as a retainer ring. The spacer is about 2.5 inches in diameter, is made of plastic, and is white in color. It is used in the agitator assembly of many direct drive washing machine models. The spacer is fitted between the agitator and the agitator auger to support it as it moves. This part is sold individually. Although it is not included in this part, you should have some dual-action agitator grease for the repair as well.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Agitator directional cogs, otherwise known as dog ears, come in a package of four and are generally found in washers where the motor is connected directly to the washer. The agitator is what causes the thrusting motion in your washer. If you have noticed that your washer is not draining properly, is making unfamiliar noises, shaking, or is simply not washing properly, it could be due to faulty agitator directional cogs. They can be found by simply removing the softener dispenser and then removing the agitator cap. For this repair, you will need a 1/4 or a 3/8ths socket set, and needle nose pliers.
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

They are not listed on the parts in the Kit. I knew I had to replace them, therefore I purchased two extra parts. I now have a spare for next time when I can just order the cam dogs.
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.
