Auger on top not turning to pull cloths down

Pretty Easy. Popped the top cap off tand intermediate cap to expose the bolt that holds it all in place. It's best to pull the entire agitator o1ff from the bottom of the basket. Carefully and firmly pull up and it will pop off. Then pull the auger off. When I did it those dog bones popped out all over the place. (I laughed) Very easy to reassemble. Just follow the instructions.
(KIT DID NOT INCLUDE GREASE) I pulled some off the shaft with my finger. Carefully slipped theh agitator back on then but the new parts all inplace and pushed together. Put bolt in and tighten while holding bottom agitator. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN! Changed o-ring on inner cap and popped in. Made sure auger only spins free one way . Runs now like a new machine. When washing do not over load your machine as not to ruin your new parts!!!
GO FOR IT!!! Try and save 500 - 900 bucks!!

CustomerJeffrey from Punta Gorda FL

Washer stopped agitating.

I followed the instructions supplied with the repair kit along with watching the web site's video and completed the repair in less than 15 minutes. Instead of agitator grease, I used silicone grease. My only complete is that the agitator repair kit didn't indicate that a thrust spacer was included, so I ordered a separate one. It didn't pay to return it. Other than that, I am highly pleased with the site and the parts.

Cam dogs worn out and the agitator wouldn't rotate.

Removed softner dispenser on top of agitator. Removed next was cap and seal cover at base of the agitator by just pulling it up. Used 1/4" drive w/ 7/16" socket w/long extension to remove the agitator mounting bolt. While holding the bottom of the auger, pull the agitator up, removing the top agitator assembly. Replace the necessary worn parts. Read the directions which came with your ordered parts. Also, the agitator grease which you are to use to lube the top of the Thrust washer is not included in the repair kit. You can use non water soluable grease to lube the thrust washer or order part number 350849. Total time, 15 minutes. Happy washing...

Agitator top not working

Repair was very easy for me and I have three fingers missing on one of my hands. Video on repair was also very detailed. I ordered three extra parts that were already included in the agitator kit. Would have been nice if all parts were listed that came in the kit and add a small tube of the grease. Delivery time was great! I would order from this company again, I was very pleased. I have already referred a friend to the site for her repairs.

Upper agitator not turning

removed agitator top by pulling up with hands. Removed inner agitator seal body by grasping with pliers and pulling up. Used 7/16 socket with extra extension to remove top agitator retension bolt. Removed top agitator body and thrust spacer by lifting off of agitator base. Assembled dogs on body as shown in instructions. Replaced thrust spacer on top of agitator base. Installed upper agitator body. Placed dog body inside upper agitator. Placed small piece of paper over 7/16 socket and forced bolt into socket. This held bolt in upright position as I replaced it down inside the upper agitator body and dog assembly with the long extensions. Replaced O-ring on inner agitator seal body and replaced into the upper agitator body using the long extensions to tap it into place. Pressed top agitator cap onto top of upper agitator body. All done. The agitator repair kit purchased had a thrust spacer in it but was not the correct one for my model so I purchased the correct spacer separate. The website is great because it shows the parts in detail so you can take your time and get the proper parts first time, everytime.

Agitator auger failed to move properly

Piece of cake. Pulled the single retainer bolt from inside the auger. A slight tug up and the entire auger agitator assembly was out. Then I disassembled the guts of the agitator cam and cleaned it up. Following the directions that were in the replacement packages. (very good instructions in plain English, finally ! ) I replaced the damaged "dogs" and reversed the install process. It works like a dream and my 87 year old mother couldn't be happier.

Washer would not spin

took off back and sides to the washer. laid the washer on it's back and removed worn and broken parts. replaced these parts and put everything back together. The top part of the agitator hasn't worked in a while, while we had it apart we also replaced the clogs. The washer works better than it has in a long time. Spins a lot more water from the clothes which makes drying faster. I would surely do this again. A lot cheaper than a new washer.
