First unscrew panel and it s an easy access to the timer. Unplug wiring in the timer and put the new one and put panel back. No need for instruction its a one plug wiring. Very easy and a lot of space to work on.
I'm really impressed with this website. I was able to quickly diagnose the problem with my machine. I watched the video and thought that this was something that I might be able to do myself. I'm a woman and I like to understand how things work and do my own repairs when I can. My machine is over 16 years old, so I had to scrape some waxy-like buildup from the inner cap before I could remove it. Other than that, I followed the instructional video, which was excellent. I found that I did not need the inner cap seal that I had ordered because a new one was included in the agitator repair kit.
First I removed the liquid fabric softener cover, then removed the seal with my fingers, then used a socket with an extension to remove the single bolt that holds the agitator to the spindle. Next, I pulled up to remove the agitator and tipped it upside down to take out the centrifugal mechanism. Then, I simply replaced the old parts with the new ones, and put it back together, as it shows in the included diagram. It took about fifteen minutes. I was glad to be able to go online, and quickly locate the exact parts our machine needed, at a reasonable price! Our machine now works like new again.
First take Fabric Softener Dispenser and cap off Agitator, locate nut, unscrew and wiggle up and out. Agitator Repair Kit comes with the cam dogs and assembly that you put together. (They will only fit one way) I opted to get the Upper Agitator as well since the old one had frayed edges. It is easier to turn over the Upper Agitator and place the assembled Repair Kit inside it then turn over and replace in original position. Using old nut, screw to the lower agitator. Replace cap and Fabric Softener Dispenser.
The agitator kit comes with everything you see in the picture plus the Thrust spacer and O ring. Removed the fabric softener container from the top of the agitator. This revealed the sealing cap that covers the bolt. Removed it using the 2 little handles and rocked it back and forth until it came loose. It doesn't take that much force. Now you see the the bolt to remove. You'll need a socket wrench that has a long extension section ( I didn't have one so I put 2 smaller extension on / it works). Once the wrench was securely in place on the bolt, I held onto the bottom section agitator/ fin with one hand and removed the bolt with the other. I pulled up on the unit and both agitator sections came off together. Once out of the machine, I held the bottom section with my feet and pulled up on the upper section to separate them ( pretty easy) . Removed all the old parts to replace and did a complete clean up of the shaft and bottom( mine was 21 years since serviced there). Used agitator grease on the cleaned shaft area and on the Thrust spacer section. I assembled the agiator dog ears part asper instruction and used a needle nose pliers to remove the plastic nubs that are only use for factory installations. Put the assembly into the agitator tube, then onto the lower section. I put that back onto the shaft, wiggling it until it fell into the grooved section. Once everything was in place, I put in the bolt ( didn't get a new one in time, so I used the old one / it works) and tightened it good. I put a new O ring on the protective cap. I greased it a little so it would go back into place easily, it did. Replaced the softener holder and I was done. Works like new.
was really simple like others before me described. Removed cap to excess recessed bolt. Once that was out of the way pulled up gently on agitator and disassembled the agitator from base. Actually repair only took about 8 minutes. Working like new again and that keeps everybody happy! Thanks again.
I removed dispenser for softener, then pulled cap inside upper agitator, I was able to get my fingers in the grips and pull firmly to unseat it. (disgard o-ring it comes with the repair kit). I then removed the bolt from center and grabbed the bottom of the lower agitator and gave it a good tug to release the whole unit. If that don't work you can get a flat tip screwdriver between the two sections and pry up slightly. Once it was all loose I removed the upper assembly taking care to to remember how all the pieces were assembled. replaced everything in the same order and when it came time to reinstall the inner cap and seal I made sure I put the cap in straight. Also if the seal doesn't cooperate you can use a little liquid soap to lubricate it. you dont want to use grease because it could possibly get on the clothes (the softener sits in there)! You can use the tip of the screwdriver to tuck the oring in if that doesn't work but be very careful
Had no problem. The instructions included with the repair parts were very easy to follow and even specified the tools to use. I had it done, back on the washer and washing clothes in about a half an hour. The down side(no fault of the parts) was that the entire pump system went out on the second load and we wound up with a new Whirpool washer, since repairs were more than the machine was worth. Thanks Parts select for your help. I plan to search your net for more products. Fixing things from engines to microswitches is a hobby for me.
Remove softener dispencer, use flat tip screw driver to remove agitator cap, there is a slot, insert flat tip screw driver and pry up, once removed you will see the damaged dogs or cogs, use 3/8 drive ratchet with 10 or 12 inch extention and if memory serves me correct a 9/16 socket, loosen bolt and remove top agitator, there is a thrust washer between bottom and top agitator, it comes in the kit, use a little grease preferrably water resistant grease on top of washer, replace top agitator then the plastic device that the cog are inserted into and tighten bolt, put agitator cover back on with a gentle slap of the palm and reinstall softener dispencer, you are done and cloths will agitate properly again, fairly easy job and washer agitator works like new, great kit, would reccomend.
Followed the directions provided. Took less than 15 minutes and the washer works like new.
popped off softener cap, easy. Pulled out clear plastic sealer, removed nut holding agitator in, pulled out agitator. Removed cam holder, new cam bearing etc in, reverse removal done, piece of cake.
I removed the cap over the ratchet mechanism, removed the ut holding the agitator in place, removed the agitator and cleaned all the parts. The assembly for the ratchet dogs was a 3 piece assembly that was included in the kit I bought from Part Select. I also bought a new cap and gasket since my old gasket had broken too. A new gasket was already included in the kit, so I didn't need ot buy the cap. I liked that th ekit included everything I needed and good instructions. parts got to me in about 3 days. Very happy with my Parts Select experience and the fact I saved at least $100.
took off the soap dispenser, removed the agitator using a 7/16" socket with an extension. replaced the old top agitator dogs and retaining ring with new ones, re-installed top agitator on bottom, thenput whole assembly back shaft, dropped in bold and tightened. whole experience was fast and simple. the parts came fast and where a perfect fit.
I popped of the fabric softner dispenser at the top auger by appling pressure with both thumbs rather than use the notch provided. This gives access to the agitator mounting bolt which was removed with a deep socket and extension on a ratchet handle. The agitator slipped right off the splined shaft by pulling upward at two points at the bottom. I ordered the complete agitator repair kit which included a part that improved the operation of the top auger, it may have been a factory upgrade at some point on this machine. I did use silicone grease where required and I feel that this is a must for longevity of the thrust washer. If you are ordering the complete kit, the o-ring seal for the inner cap is included. The machine washes like it was new.
