Not spinning clothes at top of load

I removed dispenser for softener, then pulled cap inside upper agitator, I was able to get my fingers in the grips and pull firmly to unseat it. (disgard o-ring it comes with the repair kit). I then removed the bolt from center and grabbed the bottom of the lower agitator and gave it a good tug to release the whole unit. If that don't work you can get a flat tip screwdriver between the two sections and pry up slightly. Once it was all loose I removed the upper assembly taking care to to remember how all the pieces were assembled. replaced everything in the same order and when it came time to reinstall the inner cap and seal I made sure I put the cap in straight. Also if the seal doesn't cooperate you can use a little liquid soap to lubricate it. you dont want to use grease because it could possibly get on the clothes (the softener sits in there)! You can use the tip of the screwdriver to tuck the oring in if that doesn't work but be very careful

Top agitator not turning-teeth on cam dogs worn off

Had no problem. The instructions included with the repair parts were very easy to follow and even specified the tools to use. I had it done, back on the washer and washing clothes in about a half an hour. The down side(no fault of the parts) was that the entire pump system went out on the second load and we wound up with a new Whirpool washer, since repairs were more than the machine was worth. Thanks Parts select for your help. I plan to search your net for more products. Fixing things from engines to microswitches is a hobby for me.

Top section of the agitator not rotating.

The agitator kit comes with everything you see in the picture plus the Thrust spacer and O ring. Removed the fabric softener container from the top of the agitator. This revealed the sealing cap that covers the bolt. Removed it using the 2 little handles and rocked it back and forth until it came loose. It doesn't take that much force. Now you see the the bolt to remove. You'll need a socket wrench that has a long extension section ( I didn't have one so I put 2 smaller extension on / it works). Once the wrench was securely in place on the bolt, I held onto the bottom section agitator/ fin with one hand and removed the bolt with the other. I pulled up on the unit and both agitator sections came off together. Once out of the machine, I held the bottom section with my feet and pulled up on the upper section to separate them ( pretty easy) . Removed all the old parts to replace and did a complete clean up of the shaft and bottom( mine was 21 years since serviced there). Used agitator grease on the cleaned shaft area and on the Thrust spacer section. I assembled the agiator dog ears part asper instruction and used a needle nose pliers to remove the plastic nubs that are only use for factory installations. Put the assembly into the agitator tube, then onto the lower section. I put that back onto the shaft, wiggling it until it fell into the grooved section. Once everything was in place, I put in the bolt ( didn't get a new one in time, so I used the old one / it works) and tightened it good. I put a new O ring on the protective cap. I greased it a little so it would go back into place easily, it did. Replaced the softener holder and I was done. Works like 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
