The video on replacing the agitator coupler you have posted does not match what the agitator looks like in my machine. There is no bolt to be removed from the top of the agitator as depicted and explained in the video. How do i remove the agitator? Thanks in advance.

CHARLES for model number WDSR2080D8WW
Answer:

Hi Charles, Thank you for your inquiry. Your particular agitator actually just pops off from the bottom. All you need to do is grab it by the base of it and then pull it off. Good luck with your repair.

Sean for model number WBSE3120B1WW
Answer:

Hi Sean, Thank you for your question. There are two parts that could cause that issue. Your agitator coupling could be worn out where it slides on to your transmission shaft or your agitator cogs could be worn down inside of your agitator. I would suggest checking both parts to see which one has worn down. Good luck with your repair.

Washer spins but does not agitate.I have watched your very helpful videos on replacing the agitator coupling kit and agitator. I haven't seen the washer yet... I'm in Illinois and it is in Arkansas. Is there any way to tell that I just need the agitator coupling kit assembly and not a new agitator also? Thank you for your time.

Question:

Have you ever heard of this happening? We ran a load of wash and heard a very loud banging clanging sound. When we investigated the lid was down on the washer but the agitator was sitting on the floor? If I didn't witness it I wouldn't have believe it. I put the agitator back on but it doesn't lock on well now so I am ordering a new one along with a new agitator coupler. My wife always said that laundry is going to be the death of her.

Bob for model number WSRE5260D1WW
Answer:

Hi Bob, Thank you for the question. Sounds like the bolt that holds the agitator in place broke or came lose and the force of the motor spinning threw it from the appliance. Replacing the Coupling kit should fix the issue. Hope this helps!

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.

Level of Difficulty: Really Easy
Time to do repair: Less than 15 mins
Tools: Wrench (Adjustable)
Customer: Amy from Falling Waters WV, WV

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.

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.

Agitator stripped and came off coupling

First I took off the old coupling (one screw). Put the new coupling on, lined up and snapped the new agitator onto the new coupling.
Repair took les than 5 minutes. The longest part of the whole process was lining up the agitator to the coupling.

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.
