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
PartSelect logo
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.

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
PartSelect logo
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.

Not agitating, pulled the top off the agitator, does not have a bolt to take off, has 4 little things
For model number s2100e1ww
PartSelect logo
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!

Agitator coupling kit not assessable as per video. Removed agitator cap but there is no opening to get to mounting bolt. Solid plastic 4" down with no opening to mounting bolt. 2 drain holes at solid plastic 4" down. Hotpoint ser# dh920861h washer agitates, drains but does not spin. 1 broken damping strap will need to be replaced also!
For model number VVSR1070D5

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!

Why does agitater keep coming off
For model number WDSR2080D0WW
PartSelect logo
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!

Your site states that wh49x10042 will replace 175d2846p001 but another site says it won't which is correct? Q&a from other site is below and they were selling the same part.

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.

Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
The agtator wasn't working to clean the clothes.
Got a new part in the Agitator Coupling Kit, as the existing part was worm down. Simply removed and inserted the plastic bottom, used a mallet to pound it down and it was finished. By checking a video, I felt comfortable in doing the repair myself. A greater feelings was knowing I didn't have to go out and buy a new clothes washer. Thanks PartSelect for having the right part to complete this project.

Very loose agitator so I thought
I bought 3 parts for I didn't know what I need so I listen to the companies video twice.
I popped off the agitator which was easy. then had a little trouble with getting the screw/nut out it was rusty. Finally got that off then I worked backwards and I found I didn't need all the parts which I sent back with no problems. My machine works as good as new ,it has stopped making noise. I am really proud I did this by myself and didn't need my husbands help,

I also spent less than 12.00 to fix and a new one is over 600.00.

Thank You

Washer would not drain / Agitator noisey
Disconnect electrical cord from outlet . Removed Front panel of cabinet , removed water from tub with my shop vac , disconnected hoses and electrical connections to pump , removed the two 3/8 bolts that secure pump to bottom of cabinet and removed the pump . Replacement of pump was exactly everything in reverse only hoses went on first. Agitator only required a small tug which exposed the 7/16 bolt that secures the agitator coupling . A simple remove and replace operation paying attention to the ribs which align to the channels inside the agitator . A small push locks it into place . Finish with replacement of front panel of cabinet.

Stopped agitating
I was going to replace the washer. .. I am a cabinet maker and pretty good at what I do. I have to admit before seeing the video I was out of my comfort zone with this repair. I was shown not only the part needed and that you folks had the part in your inventory on hand. I was pleased to see how inexpensive it was $7.40. I had it shipped for $8.70. I ordered online at 2 pm. the part arrived the next day at 1 pm. AMAZING!. I spent ten minutes making the repair. The machine is now back to it's like new self! Regards, MichaelAndrews.biz

Watch the videos you might be a little skeptical at first. I watched the videos about 8-10 times before I bought the part so I took my part out first then got back on you tube watched a few more videos and got on parts select website found the part matched it up to what I pulled out of my washer ordered it got to me in a weeks time put it in and working like new again cost about 14.00 shipping and part together saved about 200.00 per my estimate I had to fix it.

Washer would fill, spin and drain, but was not agitating the clothes.
(As I am an older female, I used YouTube to review the repair before trying it. YouTube scared me, the actual repair was much easier) I removed the agitator from the washer which revealed the agitator assembly held in place by a bolt. After removing the bolt, the assembly was lifted off the spindle. I cleaned the grime off the agitator, the spindle and the bottom of the washer basket. New agitator assembly was placed onto the spindle and pushed down. There was a distinctive click when it slid into place. I replaced the bolt to the top of the assembly. tightened it down, then slid the agitator over the assembly, matching grooves to teeth until that also slid into place with a click. It honestly took me longer to clean the grime than to change the part. Agitator is working perfectly
