I could see the agitator wasn't working the wash would go through its cycle. Y could put my hand on the top of the agitator and feel it wasn't catching

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

Top part of agitator not working

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.

The agitator quit working

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.

Upper agitator not working properly, noisey.

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.

Wouldn't agitate correctly

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!

Washing machine auger was not working.

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.

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!!
