Product Description

Agitator Coupling Kit Specifications

The agitator coupler connects the agitator to the agitator shaft. Common symptoms of a damaged coupler include: a grinding sound during the wash cycle, the washer refusing to agitate or spin, or the washing machine shakes and moves during the wash cycle. Unplug the washer and pull the agitator straight up. Remove the bolt that holds the coupler onto the shaft of the transmission and pull the coupler off. Be sure to clean any dirt, rust, or residue off the transmission spline grooves, and make sure the grooves on the agitator splines are clean and undamaged. We recommend using the gasket and bolt that come with the replacement coupling.

I have pulled up on the agitator but it will not com off? Is the agitator 2 pieces ? I took the softener cap off . I can hold the bottom of the agitator and rotate the top clockwise and counter clockwise. But still cannot pull the agitator off. Any suggestions.

Washer will do everything but agitate, help, can i fix it?
For model number WBSR3140DAWW
Hi Margaret, Thank you for your question. Yes you should be able to fix it. I would suggest looking at this part, your agitator coupling to see if it has worn down. If that part is fine, then you may have to look into replacing your entire agitator. Good luck with your repair.

Agitator coupling kit not assessable as per video. Removed agitator cap but there is no opening to get to mounting bolt.

Hello Brad, Thank you for your inquiry. You have to pull the entire agitator off to get at the bolt that holds the coupling on. Hope this helps!

Not agitating, pulled the top off the agitator, does not have a bolt to take off, has 4 little things
For model number s2100e1ww
Hi Earl, Thank you for your question. If the washer is not agitating, There are some parts that you will need to check to see which ones are causing the issue. You will need to check the agitator coupling kit, the drive belt, the agitator, the inner tub base hub and the hub nut. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Agitates normally and pumps water out, but will not spin. Motor does not turn on to spin even though all the water pumps out. Tested continuity of water level switch and the no contact closed and the nc contact opened.
For model number WJSR2070B2WW
Hello TJ, thank you for inquiring. For this symptom you will want to replace either the V-Style Drive Belt part PS270803, the Agitator Coupling Kit part PS1517844, or the Drain Pump and Motor Assembly part PS8768445. We hope this helps.

Why does agitater keep coming off
For model number WDSR2080D0WW
Hello Carroll, Thank you for your inquiry. It could be an issue with the agitator coupling, or one of the tabs on the bottom of the agitator that holds it to the coupling could be broken off. Check the agitator first and if one of the tabs is broken, then you would need to replace the agitator. Hope this helps!

The agitator doesn't agitate. The top agitator spins one direction, and locks in the other direction, which is the correct action.The lower agitator spins freely by hand. I have pulled the coupler. It also spins freely by hand. The drive shaft doesn't spin by hand, but the splines on the coupler seem to be intact. Should I go ahead and replace the coupler? thanks.
For model number WCSR4170DAWW
Hello Steve, Thank you for the question. I would suggest replacing the coupler but also checking the Hub Nut, Part Number: PS271505, Tub Bearing Washer Part Number: PS271509, Part Number: PS1766022, Split Ring, Part Number: PS1766022 and the Tub Seal, Part Number: PS4704237.

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.

broken dampening strap and loose agitator
first remove the front washer cover by finding the two pressure clips that hold it to the top lid. gently push the putty knife into the clips one at a time. this will raise and separate them from the front panel. the panel will tilt forward and u can now remove it from the bottom clips by sliding it up and out. to open the top cover u remove the two 1/4 in screws on the sides of the front panel and lift the top. make sure to secure it in place or unplug the single electrical connection at the rear and remove the whole top from the clips, its really simple and the most convenient mehtod. to remove the straps u can now get to all four without much interference. there are two size screw heads so make sure u have a nut driver or small socket set. after changing the straps i went to change the agitator coupling. the agitator pulled directly up without a problem. just put your two hands under and pull straight up with one good jolt. the plastic coupler has one bolt in the middle that came out easily with a small socket set. my problem arose when the plastic coupler would not come off the metal shaft. after a short time of pulling and prying i finally decided to cut it off. using a small hacksaw and taking my time i put two cuts into the coupler. they were on opposite sides and where vertical, running along the steel shaft. i could now split it in two and it came off very easily and quickly. now when putting on the new one make sure the splines line up. push as far down as u can then use the center bolt to seat the gear all the way down. the agitator also has to be lined up just right. it also has splines on the interior that allow it to line up with the coupler and merely push down until it reseats itself in place. replace the top of the washer and then the front panel. don't forget to rebolt the top panel to the frame. push the front panel in until it snaps into place. full replacement time was about 40 minutes and actually not bad with the right tools.

Agitator would not move during wash cycle
I placed both hands under the agitator 180 degrees apart, gave a quick jerk, and seperated the agitator from the coupling. With the agitator removed, use a socket and ratchet to remove the bolt holding the coupling to the spline. Remove the old coupling and slide the new one over the spline. Lightly tap on the coupling if necessary. Insert the bolt with the ratchet and slide the agitator back over the coupling and you are done.

Tub seal leaked, rusted the transmission bearing which locked up
I followed the instructions in the GE Consumer Service Training Technician Manual Pub. No. 31-10008.

I also power washed the basket and tub before reassembly.

The tub seal comes with the transmission and brake assembly so it's not necessary to order another seal.

The agitator coupling kit contains a redesigned coupler and longer screw with new o-ring.

I bought the hub nut, split ring, tub bearing, agitator coupling kit and washer hub because these are all the parts that go on the transmission shaft. I felt it was best to spend a few dollars more to replace every part involved with the spin and agitation of the washer.

I used the channel lock and a hammer with a shortened handle to remove and replace the hub nut. Use caution as the nut is aluminum.

The entire job took 5 hours.

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 would not turn during wash cycle
First raise the lid on the washer then remove the agitator by placing hands under the agitator 180 degrees apart and pulling up. Pulling up one side and then the other until the agiator lifts up and off. Mine was stuck tight so I had to really work it back and forth to get it loose. Be careful while lifting on the agitator because when it comes loose it could hit you in the face since you are over it while lifting. Once you get the agitator off use a 7/16 socket and 3/8 rachet and remove the coupling. Place the new coupling on the shaft, making sure to line up the splines on the shaft and the coupling and install the 7/16 bolt and thighten it. Place the agitator on the coupling by lining up the splines and pushing down on the agitator until it seats. Time to repair was 30 minutes.

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 was no turning
Repaired Agitator - required to pull from the bottom pulling on one side a little more then the other. Once you got loose it comes right off. Under neith there is a bolt that holds on agitator coupler. remove the bolt with wrench or socket wrench and then the agaitator coupler. Replace with new agitator coupler ,make sure grooves are aligned when putting on the rotor. Tap the top of the agitator coupler lightly until it is completely seated. Put the bolt on with wrench or socket wrench. Put the agitator back on over the agitator coupler and agin make sure grooves are alighned and push down until it feels it is seated. When done, give it a light pull to make sure it is secure and then you are done.
