The upper agitator, or auger, had completely stopped spinning

The most difficult aspect of the repair was separating the upper and lower agitator, as over the years the minerals in the water had stuck them together. I used a rubber mallet and gave the auger a few sharp blows, and the two main pieces separated. The greatest amount of time involved was the process of meticulously cleaning all the parts that were to be reused in the repair as there was a lot of old grease, dirt and mineral build up coating everything. The old cam dogs were completely gone, they had disintegrated over 20 years of use. I simply dropped the four new dogs in their cut outs on the cam agitator. and snapped on the bearing collar, which is really just a plastic retaining ring that prevents the dogs from falling out when you turn the cam agitator upside down and push it into position to connect the two agitator sections. The new thrust washer easily set in place on the lower agitator, and bolting the assembly back onto the washer shaft was a snap with a 10 inch socket extension. Washer works perfectly now, it spins better than the average political pundit.

Leaking water on floor, agitator would not agitate

Repairing the agitator was easy.
Removed the upper housing and 1 bolt.
Change the ratcheting mechanism, reinstall, done.

Changing the pump was a bit more involved.
Had to remove the shell.
The old pump was rusted on to the motor
but with the help of some PB Blaster, screwdrivers and a hammer I was able to get it off.

No more leaks on the floor and the clothes actually agitate instead of remaing stationary.

For less than a Plumbers 1 hour of labor I was able to repair it myself and will probably get another 5 years out of this washer. Will it ever die?

Cam edges worn down, top agitator not turning

Gravy replacement! I pulled out softner dispenser,
undid the one bolt securing the agitator assembly, and removed the top half of the agitator. the cam assembly tapped out. I replaced the bolt so I could still use the machine while the parts were on the way. When the part arrived (36 hours later with 3-5 days expected) I removed the bolt again and followed the simple instructions to replace the cam. Saved a ton on repair costs!

Top portion of agitator stopped agitating

I removed the fabric softener dispenser atop the agitator. I twisted and pulled out the plug inside the agitator. Using a socket on an extended wrench, I removed the single nut inside the agitator (keep the agitator from turning with a large screwdriver, etc. and turn the nut counter-clockwise to remove). The agitator came out, and I removed all of the cam parts. I cleaned all of the old parts with bleach and water. Reinstalling the new parts was simple and straightforward as indicated in the illustrated instructions. Now it works great!

Leaking water pump, no agitator movement

First I removed the housing to gain access to the water pump. Upon removal of the clamps holding the rubber hoses, I used a shallow pan to collect the water in the system (2-3 cups). Next, a flat tip screw driver was used to pry off the water pump retainer clips, such action permits the pump to be easily withdrawn from the motor shaft. Prior to my parts purchase, I had noticed rubber particles below the transmission which was due to a worn motor coupling. My second service step was to use a socket wrench to loosen the motor retaining clips for motor removal. The coupling was replaced, although the plastic driven "gears" were left in place and not replaced given they were observed in good condition and not easily removed with hand tools. After coupling installation to the transmission, the motor drive was aligned to engage the coupling. Alignment pins for the motor helped with such alignment. The motor retention clips were reinstalled and tightened - important to check the overall alignment here. Next, the rubber hoses to the pump were connected to make the final assembly step back to motor easy. Last the pump was resecured with the clips.

The agitator was repaired by removal of the softener dispenser - pulling and twisting up. Next a deep well socket was used to remove the agitator bolt. The agitator was lifted off easily. Finally, using the instructions provided a new thrust washer was installed, the agitator cam and cam dogs were installed followed by reassembly of the agitator. The agitator bolt was installed and tightened. The cover plate residing inside the softener dispenser was reinstalled, followed by the softener dispenser itself. The new parts are all now installed....last reassemble the outer housing to the washer...everything works great now.

Agitator was not rotating, nor spinning

After calling repair services locally and getting outrageous estimates, just to come and see and telling it will cost at least upwards of $ 150.00, decided to look at fixing it myself. Did not want to buy a new unit, as we are building a new house and wanted time to evaluate a new pair later next year. I wanted to put this unit in the garage of the new house, Partselect site was very informative with the symptoms of the problem and required parts and the best feature was the "how to videos". Watched the videos twice and decided I will give it a try. Ordered the parts, which came promptly despite the Thanksgiving holidays (I had to just handwash some essential clothes only once). Watched the videos again and replaced the cam dogs, which we're completely worn out and in pieces. Next replaced the motor couplings. Had a hard time putting back the washer cover, as I had to jiggle it to align. Washer Works like a charm. Saved $$. Partselect should consider bundling the agitator grease with cam dogs. Did not use any grease as I had none. Overall great satisfaction. Thanks.

Dogs were stripped

Only had to replace the dogs, the remainder of the kit did not fit my washer. It now works like a dream, maybe better than before and since I did it myself I am very proud to have made the repair and did not require a $80+ service call. I pulled off the softener dispenser, used an 11/16" socket, removed the agitator, set it on the floor stood on it and pulled off the top of the agitator, removed the device that holds the dogs, put the new ones in and reassembled. It was super easy!

Top part of agitator was spinning freely

Based on the trouble shooting page the website, I was able to confirm that I needed the $11 agitator repair kit. Small flat tip screwdriver and 7/16th socket with long extension is all that is needed. Once removed I could see all the dogs were broken, allowing the agitator to spin in either direction. Repair was exactly as described on a video I found while researching. Which is also the same as described on this website's page, but I like to see things!I used plumbers grease (silicon) for the o-ring on the cap and put back in order. 30 minutes and it's fixed!
