These agitator directional cogs are commonly referred to as dog ears. They come four to a package and are usually used with direct drive washing machines.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
The agitator kit is most commonly used if the top part of the agitator is not moving correctly but the bottom is. This kit now includes all pieces shown in photo plus the thrust spacer, inner cap seal and washer. May need agitator grease for repair.
This white thrust spacer is made of plastic and is also commonly referred to as a retainer ring. It is used in the agitator assembly of many direct drive washing machine models. This is the retaining ring for inside of agitator. May need agitator grease for repair.
This kit contains one screw with rubber gasket and threaded sealant. The screw head is 7/16".
I basically followed the video that was available on Partselect.I had trouble getting the top of the agitator separated from the lower but I used a length of 2x4 and gently tapped this with a hammer (so I wasn't hitting the plastic directly with the hammer, never a good idea). I few taps around the perimeter of the upper agitator and it came apart. The rest was quite easy. I replaced the seal since it looked pretty worn when I first removed the inner cap.

The top portion of the agitator was not turning so that laundry could be drawn down in the wash tub. The problem was 4 little cogs that where worn and would not catch on a gear/cog portion of the bottom portion of the agitator. the cogs where about $10 delivered and it took about 25 min. to install (from top of washer). The old cogs, I also repaired by taking them out and using a hacksaw to redefine the grooves on them. They are still working, so I will hold on to the new parts until needed.
I examined the problem and found defected parts. I decided the agitator repair kit would fix the problem. I received the parts in a very timely manner and the price was very fair. I Replaced the parts and the washing machine is working. Great service THANKS

repair was really simple. If you can get it apart, you can fix it. the parts fit perfectly.
Removed top cap of agitator and pulled out the inner cap. Spread a pair of needle nose pliers and placed them in square holes on each side of nylon fitting. Unscrewed nylon fitting and removed top half of agitator. Replaced directional cogs/dog ears and put agitater back together. Works like new. Easy fix.PS Received parts in 72 hours. $10.00 bucks and never left the house.
With the help of a You Tube video, which was watched first, then when the parts were delivered, the video was watched again, then we played the video back and paused it after each section was done so we could make sure we were doing the repair correct. The one thing I will mention that the video doesn't mention to do is, before taking the agitator out of the washer, put a mark somewhere on the agitator to tell you which end is the top. Just remember that the top( cap ) will be off, so that will not work. Otherwise it was a good, easy fix
Washer stopped agitating. I removed the clothes softener cup on top of the agitator by grasping and pulling up, inside the agitator I removed the inner plastic cap by grasping the 2 finger tabs and pulling up. There was a plastic retainer assembly with spring instead of the 7/16 nut referred to in other posts. I used a long 1/2" ratchet extension to remove the plastic retainer assembly, removed the top half of the agitator and replaced the cogs, then replaced the agitator, plastic retainer assembly with spring, snapped the plastic cap back on, and replace the clothes softener cup.
Go to youtube and watch how to repair washing machine agitator. It is so easy. did the repair. Now it works, less than $20.00 to fix. Now I don't need to buy a new washing machine. Maybe it will make it another 15 years.....
After removing the pressed in cap inside the agitator i removed it from the machine with a socket wrench. Then it did not take long to figure out that the two peices snapped apart. then one look at the cogs (referred to as dog ears) i knew they where stripped and where the problem. Icanceled the service call and order the parts myself from this site. So it was very easy and i'm not sure how much money i saved but the bragging rights went along way with the wife, Thanks.
Removed the agitator assembly with a socket wrench and extension, replaced cogs, reinstalled assembly...took about 10 minutes because I dropped the assembly once, and had to reassemble it. An absolute "piece of cake."
Pulled up and removed the fabric softner dispenser. Then I pulled up and removed the cap barrier to have access to the screw. Removed the screw and pulled up the cloths mover. Tunrned the cloths mover over to remove the bearing cam to remove the broken agitator cogs and replaced them with the new ones. I held the bearing cam with my right hand and held the cloths mover with my left hand turning it slowly with my left hand and lightly pushing down with my right hand until the cloths mover made contact with the grooves of the shaft and it sunk down on the shaft. Replaced the screw and washer then the cap barrier , next the fabric softner dispenser. Took 10 min. to complete the job. Now my washer runs like new ! Plus, I have a happy wife!
