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 all center plastic pcs. by pulling them out by hand. No tools required until you get to nut, unscrewed nut counterclockwise and then pulled straight up on agitator. Set it on the ground and replaced worn parts. Reversed setup to put back together. P.S. Agitator snaps on and off, it takes a little force ..........AFTER NUT IS REMOVED OF COURSE.

Removed agitator. (nut under softener dispenser) that pulled top of agitator off and removed and replaced Cog assembly. Reinstalled agitator.
When the parts arrived it was relatively easy to remove the entire agitator system with one socket through the top of the molded plastic. The new parts were exact fit (even exact color) so repair was fairly easy. Once the bolt is removed allowing removal of the entire agitator, the remaining parts come apart without tools. The only problem is if the new part comes apart. The "gears" can be put in backwards not allowing for the proper agitation.
Pull off the fabric softener dispenser. Removed the plastic seal. Use a socket and extension to remove the bilt and lift off the lower agitator. You may need to have a helper hold the lower agitator while you loosen the bolt. Remove the agitator from the machine. Use a flat bladed screw driver to break off the 4 small white tabs on the clear lock ring and remove the old parts. Install the new parts and re-install the agitator.
I watched the how-to video on your website and did exactly what he showed and it worked. I am a 44 year old woman and am pleased that I was able to do this repair by myself. I did borrow the tools from my son. Thank you!
followed the great video instuctions very helpful videos thank you parts select everyting went good but the parts didnt fix the problem so i am going to order clutch and install that and pretty sure i will have a new machine that will work for many more years thanks parts select very helpful website thanks again
The fabric softener dispenser pulled right off, then I tugged out the plastic cam cover (which was obviously not as waterproof as intended). The bolt was very rusty. I had to use the socket on the end of the screwdrive handle attachment for lack of a full one foot long 1/4 inch drive extender. Then i had to turn that with an adjustable wrench for leverage. It slipped a couple times but then came off. To disassemble the two halves of the agitator i had to pry on the rather squished tabs holding them together and yank quite hard until it popped off. Then it came apart easily, the cam went back in easily, especially with the provided instructions, and then it all popped back together after a well needed cleaning. The new bolt went right in the cover back on. After a empty load of water to rinse away any remnants it works like a charm.
I performed the repair after watching a YouTube video. Definately need a socket wrench ext. Before you try anything. It all went to plan until I tried to pull the agitator tube from the agitator base. The problem was caused by the manufacturer melting the base tabs with the agitator spindle. The melted plastic made it near impossible to pull the two pieces apart without using a knife and twenty minutes of my time prying the agitator from the tabs. Other than that it was an moderately easy fix with two tools and well worth it.
Replaced them with the agitator cam kit. It was easy. Hard to get the upper agitator half off of the lower but that was what the husband is for LOL. With his muscle and your "how to videos", it was a snap. If something else breaks this is the first place Im going to to see if I can repair it. This repair cost a whopping $24 and I actually could have gotten away a lot cheaper but bought an extra washer and bolt which I probably didnt need but replaced anyway. I thought we were going to have to get a new washing machine. No way. Machine is working as good as ever. Thank you, thank you XXXOOO
Replaced upper agitator cam kit assembly, very easy to replace and in about 15 minutes. I would also like to mention about PartSelect's web sit is very easy to find your parts and at good prices they even have video's if you need a little explanation on how to install your part.
Bottom agitator worke fine, but top would not.Ordered new agiator cam kit and thrust spacer. Removed top agitator with a 3/8" socket, replaced cam kit and spacer.Washer agitates as new. Great parts blow-up drawing and in-stock as well. Thanks
Tried the repair as described in the video and with hints provided, but the agitator would not seperate. Waited for replacement parts (arrived in two days, very good!) and saw that I could destroy old part getting it out and still make the repair. Once old part was free the rest of the repair was text book, or video book easy!
I open the cap on the top of the agitator, inside there is another cap take that one off, then take the screw out than replace the agitator cam kit and replace it also there is a inner cap seal that need to change then put everything back together close all the caps and start washing again.
fast and easy
I watched the video, read about the 10-minute repairs and how easy it was, and thought "no problem"...It turned out that "popping the top part of the agitator" off the base was NOT easy. I finally admitted defeat and got my husband's help. He could not get them to "pop" apart either! I did not know that the 4 white plastic tabs through the cam were what was holding it together. Since I could see that ours were damaged and I wasn't getting anywhere anyway, I took a long screwdriver and poked, scraped, and pried on them out of sheer frustration. When some of the bits of plastic had broken off, I stood on the base and yanked up on that darn thing as hard as I could and yep - it "popped" off sending parts flying across the laundry room. The rest of the repair was done in under 5 minutes.Note to others: If the 4 plastic tabs that hold the cam to the base have been melted/crushed flat, don't expect the two parts of the agitator to come apart easily!
