One of eight clips broke off of the agitator assy allowing the assembly to come lose on heavy loads.
I replaced the coupling by only having to remove one bolt with a socket wrench. Once replaced I installed the new assy over the coupling making sure ro align the splines then pushing down until the assy snapped into place. Easy.

The metal shaft of the agitator stripped the plastic coupling inside so I decided to replace the entire agitator assembly.
I installed the coupler and tightened the bolt with an adjustable wrench. Then I aligned the agitator and snapped it onto the coupler. Then I snapped the fabric softener dispenser onto the agitator. All of this took less than 3 minutes and that includes putting the wrench back into the tool box.

I pulled the agitator off of the coupler and out of the machine. I moved the coupler in circles by hand to check to see if it was working properly. It wasn't. I got an adjustable wrench and removerd the bolt that held the coupler on. I pulled the coupler out of the wash basin and examined it. I saw that it was stripped out and I new I had to get a new one. I first called my local sears store to see if I could get the parts. First I spent about 20 minutes tied up in their phone system and then when I finally got to speak to an actual person they didn't have a clue. Then somehow I got transferred to the Sears 1-800- phone number and spent about 20 minutes talking with a parts person. Meanwhile I checked out partsselect.com while I was speaking with the Sears rep. It turns out that Sears wanted about $25 more for the parts than parts select and I was only placing a $50 order. When I brought this to the attention of the sales rep. they replied that they were shipping only GE repair parts. Big Deal. The parts that I got from parts select were the exact parts that I took out of the washer. Ordering online was very easy and convenient and I wasn't overcharged for shipping. The repair took less than 3 minutes and everything works like new. Thank you parts select.

Blades broken off agitator
Simply put hands, one under each side of the agitaror and pulled up. The part snapped off very easily. I then placed the new part in the tub and pressed down. Extremely easy, should have done it sooner!

Agitator in washing machine not moving
First, I removed the liquid softner dispenser cup from the agitator. Next I gripped the bottom of the agitator and pulled straight up. This was the most difficult part of the repair. Next, I removed the couplier bolt with the appropriate size socket wrench. And then removed the couplier from the transmission shaft. This exposed the shaft. Upon receipt of parts from Part Select, I proceed to install in the reverse order. I slide the new couplier back onto the transmission shaft. and bolted down with new bolt using the original socket wrench. Next I slide on the new agitator making sure the "tongue and groves" matched. Then I placed the liquid softner cup back onto the new agitator. And with great joy my washer is working once more. Thank you Parts Select.

agitator is not moving
We couldnt figure out why our clothes werent getting clean until I took the door magnet off and placed it on the sensor so we could watch the washing machine while it was operating with the lid open. The agitator was not moving at all. I put a rope through the fins of the agitator on 2 sides, and using a board for leverage, it popped right off. I used a socket to remove the coupler screw and put on the new parts. Washer works great now. A very easy repair.

Two paddles on the agitator broke off.
After reading how others have done this and how easy it was, I decided to give it a try. And, sure enough, it was really easy. However, one concern I had was on lifting the old agitator off from the axle using both hands. I didn't want to have the agitator come crashing into my face as I pulled up. So I put a pillow on top of the agitator.

Fin Broke off the Agitator
My wife washed a washable mop head and somehow it managed to break one of the fins off the agitator. I ordered a new agitator, fabric softener dispenser, agitator coupling, and bolt. I figured since I had to replace the agitator I would replace everything. This was super simple and easy. I watched a few videos on getting the agitator off, some people said you may need to run some rope under it to get it off. Luckily mine popped right off. I grabbed both sides and gave it a good solid jerk straight up and it came right off. I used a 3/8 drive socket wrench and a 7/16 socket to remove the bolt from the agitator coupling. I installed the new coupling with a new bolt, lined up the agitator and snapped it right on. Popped in the new fabric softener dispenser and that was it. I may have spent a total of 10 minutes counting unpacking the new parts and carting the old ones out to the trash can replacing this. If you can operate a socket wrench or a new smart phone this is really a piece of cake.
