Question:

If I put anything more than a small load in my washer the agitator will not spin. Does that mean I need a new agitator or is there any way I can repair it?

Cynthie
Answer:

Hi Cynthie, if your cam kit is faulty it could cause the washer to not agitate properly. I would check the cams first. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Question:

How do you rate your cam size? This kit is called the medium cam agitator repair kit but I don’t know what size cam I have ….

Shannon
Answer:

Hi Shannon, great question! A medium cam kit 285811 (which is this part) is the most common, and is approximately 2.25 inches. We recommend either measuring your old cam, or entering your model number to confirm which size you need. For the long cam agitator kit you can order this 285748, for the short cam agitator kit you can order this 285809. I hope this helps.

Question:

My washer fills with water but will not agatate,what parts do i need ?

gayla mccallister
Answer:

Hello Gayla, that is a great question. If the washer will not agitate after filling with water, most of the time it is the lid switch/latch. If that part is faulty it will not allow the washer to start agitating since the door is unable to lock. Hope this helps!

Question:

With this repair I’ve been kinda guessing at what I need to do but now that the parts are here I need to get the agitator removed and install the agitator repair kit. Do you have any recommendation before I start?

Byron
Answer:

Hi Byron, first you should remove the agitator, then inspect the agitator shaft for damage or rust. If it is bad the complete gearcase will need to be replaced. Next you can install your agitator and cam kit. Best of luck with this repair!

Top section of agitator slipping on ratcheting dogs

I popped of the fabric softner dispenser at the top auger by appling pressure with both thumbs rather than use the notch provided. This gives access to the agitator mounting bolt which was removed with a deep socket and extension on a ratchet handle. The agitator slipped right off the splined shaft by pulling upward at two points at the bottom. I ordered the complete agitator repair kit which included a part that improved the operation of the top auger, it may have been a factory upgrade at some point on this machine. I did use silicone grease where required and I feel that this is a must for longevity of the thrust washer. If you are ordering the complete kit, the o-ring seal for the inner cap is included. The machine washes like it was new.

Wash cycles worked normal but agitator would not rotate clothes

I ordered my parts from partselect and had them at my door the following day (AWESOME!) I removed the dispensor on the top of the agitator and reached inside to remove the protective cover to the cams/bearing area. I then removed the center bolt (7/16) and lifted the agitator off the shaft. Replaced the parts I ordered (Part Number: PS334650
Agitator repair kit, and replaced the Upper Agitator Part Number: PS342399) Everything fit perfectly and the instructions were quite simple. Washer now works like a charm and I didn't have to replace my washer. I was very impressed and surprised with the delivery time of my order. I will definitely use this website again for any appliance repairs I need. MrL 11/2010

The washer wasn't agitating.

Removed the attaching bolt and then removed the Upper Agitator Assembly. I removed the damaged parts and installed the Agitator Repair Kit and Re-installed the NEW Upper Agitator Assembly.

All of our wash was smelling like mildew. It was making us nauseas . After the repair everything smelled fresh and clean again. We received our parts within three days.

Thanks

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.

4 small nylon pieces on shaft inside agitator, worn out, agitator would not turn properly. And

The process to replace the nylon pieces was to remove the protective cap, (which snaps in place),agitator (which is held in place with a nut) you will need a socket with an extention to reach the nut, and worn parts. replace the agitator repair kit, agitator and protective cap and your washer works as good as new. This is a very simple repair job, even a 10 yr old could do this

The top part of agiator would not spin

I watched the video, it went step by step, the screws were not the same as on the video but not hard to figure out how to take control top off. The rest was easy, the video was so easy to follow. The only problem I had was trying to put the cabinet back on the base, I had to have my husband help me, otherwise it was easy. This is the first time I have ever tried to fix a washing machine, I had been looking at new ones, but I decided to try my hand at fixing the problem and I am glad I did,my husband is so proud that I did it by myself that he is telling all our family and friends. I will shop this website again. Thank you

The agitator on the washing machine was not working at all; I was ready to call a repair man or buy a new washer

I popped the cap off of the agitator. I could see the grabbers weren't grabbing the side of the agitator. I thought I could take a shot at fixing it since I was ready to give up. Happened upon this site. With the model number, I was very easily able to find the parts I needed. Ordered them up. Took one bolt out of the assembly and the whole agitator came off. I popped in the new parts as the diagram was very easy to follow, resecured the bolt, and all was good. I saved a ton of money off replacement or even calling a service tech. Your site made this very easy with the detailed diagrams. Didn't order anything I didn't need. Only cost $11 to fix it and made me feel like Mr. Fixit. I will definitely use your site as my first, best choice for any problems I have in the future.

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!!!

Customer: Edward from Pacific Grove, CA

Agitator cogs wore out in about three years, requiring replacement.

I ordered these parts for next day delivery. The next morning they were on my door step!

I pulled off the plastic cover inside the agitator, under the softener dispenser and replaced the old "O" rign with the new one. Next I used a 3/8" socket with a 6" extension to loosen the agitator nut and removed it. The one on our machine was on rather tightly - a bit too tight in my estimation.

The upper part of the agitator lifted easily. I lifted out the cog mechanism and studied it. I took the new parts, and assembled them, using the old parts for visual reference. All of this took about ten minutes. Be sure you push firmly on the retainer until it locks in place to keep the cogs in their slots.

Next I spent about 15 minutes cleaning up the agitator just because I like to put stuff back together in 'clean condition'.

Next I replaced the thrust bearing. The instruction specified a special grease to lubricate the thrust bearing - order this when you order the parts. The original one had no grease on it and was quite worn. I used food grade vaseline. You could probably also use silicone lube on this, the part is nylon.

After I cleaned the assembly and put in the new thrust bearing, I replaced the agitator. I had slight difficulty lining up two grooves on the cog holder for the guides in the main agitator mount but got them lined up on the third try - that took less than a minute. I put the new washer on the nut, inserted the nut and tightened it down - be careful not to over tighten, just make sure it is snugged down.

Over-all this is a fairly straight-forward repair job and is not difficult - anyone who can follow easy to read instructions and run a socket wrench can do this. I would only caution to make sure the new cogs are correctly oriented in their holder. Study how the original is assembled so you can duplicate it with the new parts. Just for the record, the nut is standard right hand thread - lefty loosey, righty tighty.

I think these parts are made to fail on purpose - if the machine gets over loaded and the agitator can't work it will chew up the cogs rather than break the agitator. Good thinking on some engineer's part!

I was lucky when I found Parts Select - I'll come here for my parts from now on!

Agitator wouldn't twirl.

Removed old agitator and determined teeth in center were worn down. Purchased new upper agitator assembly and repair kit. It now works like a new washer. (NOTE: It wasn't until after I did the repair that I heard 15 years is quite old for a washer. But it cost me $40 to repair compared to $500 to replace. I hope it lasts another 15 years!)
