Cloths mover was worn out

1st removed the cap, then took nut drive/ long socket and removed the agitator nut. Pulled up and removed the agitator / cloths mover. With a gentle pull and twist the cloths mover separated from the agitator. The old dog assembly fell out in the process. Installed new dog kit in agitator and put new cloths mover on the agitator. Put back in machine and tightened nut. Your web site is great . Easy to navigate and understand. Parts shipped same day and were at my house the next day. Great Prices and also found the live chat useful. Will sure to use again.
For this repair I do recommend replacing both the dogs and the cloths mover as the slots in the cloths mover do wear.

Upper agitator wore out

Pull the cap off of the top of the agitator.
Pull the plastic peice that is inside of the agitator up.
Use a deep well socket with an extension and remove the nut.
Pull the agitor off.
Follow the installation instructions that come with the part.

I saved $40 on the cost of the parts and the price to repair, which would probably cost about the same as the part I would have picked up at the local supplier. ~$90.

This is the first time I used the site. Two thumbs up. The price is right and the delivery is fast.

Replacement of upper agitator.

Very simple. Remove the fabric softener dispenser. Then remove the nut that is inside the agitator (requires a couple of extensions for your socket set). Remove the agitator by pulling up.

I replaced the 'dog ears' or agitator and the upper agitator. It is easy to see where everything needs to go after you take it apart. The upper agitator had plastic gears that were stripped and wouldn't have worked by only replacing the directional cogs.

Its easy, nothing to worry about.

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!!!
