Agitator Directional Cogs

Part Number 388034

Agitator directional cogs, otherwise known as dog ears, come in a package of four and are generally found in washers where the motor is connected directly to the washer. The agitator is what causes the thrusting motion in your washer. If you have noticed that your washer is not draining properly, is making unfamiliar noises, shaking, or is simply not washing properly, it could be due to faulty agitator directional cogs. They can be found by simply removing the softener dispenser and then removing the agitator cap. For this repair, you will need a 1/4 or a 3/8ths socket set, and needle nose pliers.

Agitator would spin in both directions

First I removed the fabric softener bowl and the cap with the O ring. This exposes the 7/16 hex head screw that secures the whole agitator assembly. After removing the screw the whole assembly can be removed from the washer. By lifting up on the upper half of the assembly while holding down on the bottom half they should come apart (a little pressure is needed). From there you just lift out the unit containing the cogs and replace them. Once you see the part it is pretty self explanatory how it goes together. Re-assemble it the same way it came apart.

Top part of agitator not spinning in one direction as before and had lots of play

Remove the fabric softener dispenser by releasing the blue lock ring.
Using a small screwdriver pop off the cap to the agitator auger and remove the bolt holding it down. You will need a socket set with extension.
Remove the agitator auger and remove the center part containing the cogs (think it is called the cam driver).
Remove the worn out cogs and replace with the new cogs. Put this part back into the agitator auger. It is easier if you turn over the agitator auger part when replacing the cogs so that they do not fall out. If you buy the new replacement cam driver from Parts Select it brings a retainer to keep the cogs from falling out.
On top of the main agitator still in the washing machine, remove the thrust spacer and replace with the new thrust spacer. Apply a good coat of silicone grease (dielectric grease works) to the top of the thrust spacer. Also apply a little grease around the O-ring on the Agitator cap.
Now place back the part you have repaired and once sure it is set correctly on the main agitator, replace the bolt and tighten it down firmly.
Replace the cap and replace the fabric softener dispenser and lock it back in place.
That is all it takes. Took just a little over 15 minutes and now it works like new.
You would not believe what the local Applicance Repair wanted to charge to come out to the house and do this simple repair.

Upper agitator not working properly, noisey.

Bottom Agitator was working, but top part wasn't. It was running ok, but not cycling the clothes from top to bottom.
The repair was fairly simple. I took the cap off the center, and down inside was a domed looking disk with an O ring on it. I turned it a little to unseat it, and it came right out. I used a Socket wrench with an 11mm socket and multiple extentions to reach down to the bolt. When I took out the bolt, the whole thing comes out. I got the top agitator piece, it needed one. the repair kit, it needed this also. And a thrust washer that I did not need. The kit came with a thrust washer, and I didn't know it. The washer only cost $2 and something, so I didn't worry about it to much. Had all the instruction, with pic's, so it was no problem to replace. Anyone with a little mechanical know-how will breeze through it.

Washer stopped agitating.

I followed the instructions supplied with the repair kit along with watching the web site's video and completed the repair in less than 15 minutes. Instead of agitator grease, I used silicone grease. My only complete is that the agitator repair kit didn't indicate that a thrust spacer was included, so I ordered a separate one. It didn't pay to return it. Other than that, I am highly pleased with the site and the parts.

Cam dogs worn out and the agitator wouldn't rotate.

Removed softner dispenser on top of agitator. Removed next was cap and seal cover at base of the agitator by just pulling it up. Used 1/4" drive w/ 7/16" socket w/long extension to remove the agitator mounting bolt. While holding the bottom of the auger, pull the agitator up, removing the top agitator assembly. Replace the necessary worn parts. Read the directions which came with your ordered parts. Also, the agitator grease which you are to use to lube the top of the Thrust washer is not included in the repair kit. You can use non water soluable grease to lube the thrust washer or order part number 350849. Total time, 15 minutes. Happy washing...

Agitator top not working

Repair was very easy for me and I have three fingers missing on one of my hands. Video on repair was also very detailed. I ordered three extra parts that were already included in the agitator kit. Would have been nice if all parts were listed that came in the kit and add a small tube of the grease. Delivery time was great! I would order from this company again, I was very pleased. I have already referred a friend to the site for her repairs.

The agitator arm that rotates the clothes was not moving

pull up and off the fabric dispenser, remove the nut in the middle, and pull the piece off. underneath are 4 plastic things (dogs) that will just fall out. replace them (because they have little plastic things that jut out) and wear away. maneuver the piece back in place and tighten the screw back into place.
SAME JOB BY REPAIR CO. COST ME $95.00 THE FIRST TIME. WE USE HEAVY LOADS AND THE DOGS WEAR OUT AFTER A FEW YEARS. NOW I JUST CHANGE THEM MYSELF.***DID I ADD THAT I AM A WOMAN****

Upper agitator not turning

removed agitator top by pulling up with hands. Removed inner agitator seal body by grasping with pliers and pulling up. Used 7/16 socket with extra extension to remove top agitator retension bolt. Removed top agitator body and thrust spacer by lifting off of agitator base. Assembled dogs on body as shown in instructions. Replaced thrust spacer on top of agitator base. Installed upper agitator body. Placed dog body inside upper agitator. Placed small piece of paper over 7/16 socket and forced bolt into socket. This held bolt in upright position as I replaced it down inside the upper agitator body and dog assembly with the long extensions. Replaced O-ring on inner agitator seal body and replaced into the upper agitator body using the long extensions to tap it into place. Pressed top agitator cap onto top of upper agitator body. All done. The agitator repair kit purchased had a thrust spacer in it but was not the correct one for my model so I purchased the correct spacer separate. The website is great because it shows the parts in detail so you can take your time and get the proper parts first time, everytime.

Washer would not spin

took off back and sides to the washer. laid the washer on it's back and removed worn and broken parts. replaced these parts and put everything back together. The top part of the agitator hasn't worked in a while, while we had it apart we also replaced the clogs. The washer works better than it has in a long time. Spins a lot more water from the clothes which makes drying faster. I would surely do this again. A lot cheaper than a new washer.
