Agitator not agitating

I had previously disassembled the agitator assembly so all that I needed to do was assemble the repair kit and reassemble the agitator. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. Having previously disassembled the parts helped to know how to reassemble the new parts. I did have a moment of frustration trying to get the bolt that holds the assembly together to line up with the agitator shaft. Finally got that solved by holding it in place with the socket wrench before placing the agitator assembly on the shaft. After reassembling the agitator, everything worked great. I figure I saved over $100.00 buying the parts and doing the job myself.

Amazingly easy!

I can't really add anything to what others have said as far as taking it apart and putting it together. I'll just say that with a socket wrench, a long extension and just a little mechanical aptitude you can have this done in well under 30 minutes. I imagine it would be a 150-200 dollars to call someone in to see whats wrong. Thanks PartSelect!

Top portion of agitator wouldn't turn.

First I removed the top cap on the agitator, then I removed the second cap inside the agitator. I moved the agitator with my hands and saw that the "dog ears" were worn and no longer touched the agitator and couldn't move it. I then used a nut driver to remove the nut that held the top portion of the agitator onto the bottom portion. I made a note of the worn parts, got online at PartsSelect.com and ordered the replacement parts. A few days later the parts arrived and I repeated the above process in reverse using the new parts. It now works like new!!! It wasn was very easy. Thanks!!!

The adgitator was not moving as it should have.

Pulled off the cover on the adgitator then removed the cap inside the adgitator and the one 7/16 bolt holding on the adgitator. Pulled the adgitator top off the base and removed the drive section with the 4 fingers that engaged with the adgitator. Installed the new assembly, put the bolt back in and I was done.

Top half of agitator not turning with noise during wash

Removed fabric softener dispenser. Removed the one bolt holding the agitator in place and pulled the unit out of the washer. Followed the instructions packed with the kit and then put the agitator back in place. Very easy repair. The "dogs" were worn from years of use. I probably could have just replaced the 4 "dogs" as the other parts showed no wear. However, the kit is a bargain and now the unit is as good as new. I especially like the fact that the parts were factory parts and not generic.

Upper part of agitator column not rotating

Pop off the upper part of the agitator (just grip firmly and yank straight up). Pull out the sealing cap down inside the opening you've just exposed, and that reveals the bolt. Using a long extension on a socket wrench remove the bolt. Now you can remove the part with the cam "dogs" on it.

The first kit I got only had one of the 4 cams, so I had to contact customer service for replacements. They came quickly.

You need to pull out the agitator itself to put in some "thrust ring" thingy. It just drops on. There are also a couple of plastic tags on the agitator itself that have to be snapped off (they are leftovers from assembly and not actually part of the mechanism) with pliers to allow the main cam assembly to seat. The instructions show this clearly.

Check to be sure the dogs only allow one way rotation, screw the bolt back in, replace the sealing cap and snap on the top and you're done.

Spinner not spinning

My Dad's the mechanical one, so I asked him to look in my washer to see why the spinner was just kinda jiggling back and forth and not turning and agitating the clothes like it's supposed to. He tried screwing off the plastic cap, but found that it just pops off either with some strong fingernails or a slot screwdriver. Looking down the cylinder there is a cap that I had to pull out with some pliers. Looking at the agitator, we could see that there were no prongs(found out they are called "dogs") that could grab the teeth in the cylinder. There was worn away. I found the agitator kit on here and undid the one screw with a socket wrench and pulled out the whole spinner. My fiance grabbed the base of it and I pulled the upper cylinder part off. The instructions were basically just a picture and how it all fit together. The problem I had was the dogs kept falling off, which was fixed by putting a plastic piece (provided) that wasn't on the schematics. It slid all into place, put the screw back in and the machine is working great.

Top of washer will not agitate

Followed the instruction and was straight forward. Had a real hard time getting the center nut off with one hand and prevent the bottom from spinning with the other hand. In the end, sat on the washer with both legs in the washer holding on the bottom while use both hand to remove the nut. It was real tight. Anyway, this was my lesson learned. The other steps are easy to do

Agitator did not turn

I opened the agitator's top, removed the plastic lid. Then I removed the bolt with the socket. Next, I removed the old agitator set and cleaned the area. I applied some white grease to the area the directional cogs work. I set the new kit and tight the bolt again. Finally, I put the rest of the parts back. It worked!

CustomerClyde from Clemson SC

Top part of agitator (clothes mover) was not turning

I removed the fabric softener dispenser exposing the cap. I was able to grab the "handles" and pull it out of the agitator. Then I used a long extension with a 7/16 inch socket and removed the screw and washer. With a little gentle wiggling and pulling the clothes mover lifted off. The inside of the clothes mover had a build-up of old softener and detergent which I cleaned out with an old toothbrush and hot water in the kitchen sink.

I had read that the repair kit included everything you needed except for the grease. I was glad I ordered the kit because I did not realize that the thrust spacer on my machine was worn out as well. The included instructions guided me through the reassembly very well. The hardest part of the whole process was getting the screw and washer back into the hole after the clothes mover assembly was inserted into the agitator.

This was an easy repair. Cleaning gunk out of the clothes mover took longer than the actual repair.

I was very pleased with the delivery speed from PartSelect. The parts were exactly what I needed and now the washer is washing clothes like new again.
