Top part of agitator broken

Removed the softerner dispenser and the inner cap and seal. Removed the mounting bolt. Pulled on Auger and entire agitator came out. I needed to separate the parts. It said to stand on the bottom and pull on the top. I am an "older" woman and after wrestling with it for an hour without success I waited for my nephew to come by to separate the two pieces. When he did, it popped apart and all the parts went flying. Poor guy thought he had broken it. After conviencing him that that was what I wanted it to do, he left. Dirrections weren't very clear as to what went on first and I didn't have the convience of seeing it before it flew apart. Finally put it together and replaced the bolt. To no avail, something was wrong. My sister was making the same repair at her house across the street so we double teamed it. She came over and told me that I needed to put the Bottom agitator in the machine, then the spacer thrust, then the auger, then the assembled cam and cam dogs, then the bolt. All went well and was working.......so we thought. Started a washer load and the washer started leaking water. Don't know why, still don't know why. All I did was remove everything, put it back the very same way, and it hasn't leaked since. Go figure!

Agitator slipping

Removed bolt in center of agitator then slid agitator straight up and out replaced the dogs and the other parts that came with the cam kit i also replaced a few of the other parts that wear in the agitator ,you can actually re-cut the teeth on the dogs with a razor so that they will work again ,but new parts are very reasonably priced and the parts arrived very quickly the next day .

Would not agitate on the top portion of agitator

Removed the softner dispenser and lifted up the plastic piece under that. Used a 9/16th socket with a long extension and unscrewed the center bolt.
Lifted the entire agitator parts off and out.
Next had to get husband to separate the top from the bottom, it was really hard for me. I am a woman but not weak!!
Replace the washer and the other 2 parts, and put it back together and it all took about 15 to 20 minutes.

Easy repair, even for a woman!!!

Agitator wasn't moving

Much like the other descriptions. I found the video helpful and this was the only vendor that had diagrams, so you could see how things went back together. When I popped off the top piece, everything went flying, as someone else mentioned, so the diagram was essential.

Upper agitator would not move

Begin by removing the fabric softener dispenser then the barrier cap can be pulled from the agitator this will allow access to the agitator retainer bolt use an 11mm socket and extension to remove it once the bolt is out the agitator assembly can be pulled straight up out of the machine. To separate the upper agitator from the lower placing the agitator on the floor and placing your feet on the lower half and pulling up on the upper half will separate the two parts, however before performing this operation the agitator cam assembly may be heat set in place, looking down into the upper agitator there are four lugs that hold the cam in place if you use a sharp knife and cut thru the areas that have been heated and welded together separation of the two half's will be made easier. Once all the old cam parts are out reassemble the new parts the same way as the old ones were removed, the cam kit and the thrust washer kit come with a diagram in case you forget how to reassemble the parts. The agitator assembly simply slips back onto the drive splines, the attachment bolt has a seal under it that can be crushed if the attachment bolt is tightened too tight, I could not find a torque specification for this bolt so what I did was tighten the bolt until it contacted the seal completely and then applied just enough torque to turn the bolt until the agitator began to turn along with the bolt, then just install the barrier cap and seal and replace the fabric softener dispenser and the job is done, if you're washer is like mine I spent more time cleaning parts than actually performing this repair.

Agitator would not turn.

Went to website and found question to what problem i was having with washer and they gave me a list of parts to fix it. The video that showed me how to change the parts was very helpful. I replaced the Agitator Cam Kit and the thrust washer. It was very easy to do and watching the video before i started helped.

Agitator did not work

Took the assembly apart, replaced the little plastic cogs that had dried out in storage while I was stationed in Italy and broke apart upon use when I returned. Works like it did when it was new now! It was easy with the detailed pictures and easy ordering. Shipped quick and was overall a great experience.
