The agitator is designed to spin the clothes during a wash cycle. If your washing machine will not agitate, spin, or shakes and/or is noisy, you may need to purchase the agitator repair kit. The agitator kit is most commonly used if the top part of the agitator is not moving correctly but the bottom is. This kit now includes all pieces shown in the photo plus the thrust spacer, inner cap seal, and washer. You may need agitator grease for this repair. As with any major appliance repair, be sure to disconnect power to the washing machine before beginning the job.
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:
This kit contains one screw with rubber gasket and threaded sealant. The screw head is 7/16".
Also known as an O-Ring. This black o-ring seal is three inches in diameter.
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.
I had watched the video when I ordered the parts so I knew pretty well what had to be done..there was a little confusion with the picture part, so I got the video going again and that solved the problem..this eliminated the mystery of the agitator. It also eliminated the sour smell in the washing machine because I cleaned the gunk off of the agitator that had accumulated during 15 years...easy repair..

after getting on the website and watching the video it was as easy as one, two, three by just following the instructions. I didn't have any agitator grease though.
I removed the cover ( top of the agitator ) then I could see the clutch like system used. After removing the agitator I could see the 4 dog ears were worn and not catching the gear in the agitator base. I went to partselect.com looked up the washer parts and there it was, pictures of the agitator parts with easy measurements to pick the right one. After odering online the part was in my hand in two days and back in the washer in 15 minutes. Now my wife has her washer running like new again. I thank Partselect for the easy to use website and the quick response for my order. I do have to say this is my third order with Partselect and I'm very sure it won't be my last. Thank you
Removed agitator cap. Barrier was stuck, so I cut it in 2 by hammering a big knife in, then removing pieces. Removed screw and ifted out agitator in one piece. Separated top and bottom by standing on bottom and pulling up on top. Put bottom back in washer. Replaced thrust washer and other parts in agitator repair kit. and reassembled everything. (Used Gunk plumbers silicone grease instead of "dual action agitator grease".) Barrier cap came with O ring seal, so did agitator kit, so I didn't need the O ring I ordered. Ended up with 2 extras.
pulled the softner dispenser, removed the o-ring seal cap, pulled removed the assembly bolt, removed the agitator rotator assembly, replaced worn componants with new while reversing the process.
Removed 7/16 bolt, pulled the agitator up, replaced old dog asm. with new one replaced bolt and did a load of clothes. Thanks
My boyfriend did the repair just the way the directions said to. The only reason why he used pliers is because we did not have a long enough handled screw driver. It was very easy and quick. I was doing laundry in about 15 minutes.
remove cap on agitator, 1/2 bolt holding agitator,remove old parts, put new parts in , rebolt and recap
Bottom Agitator was working, but top part wasn't. It was running ok, but not cycling the clothes from top to bottom.The repair was fairly simple. I took the cap off the center, and down inside was a domed looking disk with an O ring on it. I turned it a little to unseat it, and it came right out. I used a Socket wrench with an 11mm socket and multiple extentions to reach down to the bolt. When I took out the bolt, the whole thing comes out. I got the top agitator piece, it needed one. the repair kit, it needed this also. And a thrust washer that I did not need. The kit came with a thrust washer, and I didn't know it. The washer only cost $2 and something, so I didn't worry about it to much. Had all the instruction, with pic's, so it was no problem to replace. Anyone with a little mechanical know-how will breeze through it.
First, know that I am the least mechanical person in the world. Second, kudos to this website. Diagnosis was perfect, and the kit worked perfectly! If I were able to do this in under a half hour... anybody will be fine. Be sure to get the grease separately... I used silicone gel because that's what I had.Saved about $90 probably!
Per the instructions supplied with the kit, I removed the auger/agitator, installed the repair kit, and replaced the sealing o-ring (included with the kit). Very easy job to do.
Washer not rotating, removed the control head and back cover. Then removed body housing around tube to get to the bottom. had to replace coupling on motor then removed the agitator tower and replaced the Parts for the tower agitator. unit is 16 years young and still looks and runs new, put a total of 55 dollars into repair and it should be good for a long time.
