Washing machine agitator not moving much

First take Fabric Softener Dispenser and cap off Agitator, locate nut, unscrew and wiggle up and out. Agitator Repair Kit comes with the cam dogs and assembly that you put together. (They will only fit one way) I opted to get the Upper Agitator as well since the old one had frayed edges. It is easier to turn over the Upper Agitator and place the assembled Repair Kit inside it then turn over and replace in original position. Using old nut, screw to the lower agitator. Replace cap and Fabric Softener Dispenser.

Washer model didn't come with softener dispenser

Just bought my washer and dryer from Home Depot, but bought an Admiral model that didn't come with a fabric softener dispenser. Ordered the part from PartSelect and after rocket fast shipping installed it in seconds. The installation required no tools as the dispenser just snapped right in. My clothes are now soft and free of static cling. Thank you PartSelect!!

CustomerTeresa from Elkin, NC

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

Agitator would not turn

Removed the stud bolt in the ag[tator and removed the agitator from the machine. J then seperated the agitator in two pieces and installed the new dogs.I then installed the agitator back in the washing machine and it performed beautifully
