Product Description

Thrust Spacer Specifications

This is a genuine OEM thrust spacer for your washer, and is also commonly known as a retainer ring. The spacer is about 2.5 inches in diameter, is made of plastic, and is white in color. It is used in the agitator assembly of many direct drive washing machine models. The spacer is fitted between the agitator and the agitator auger to support it as it moves. This part is sold individually. Although it is not included in this part, you should have some dual-action agitator grease for the repair as well.

Hello i have a Roper washing machine that will fill with water and spin, but the agitator only seems to move about 1/2 an inch (maybe 1/30 of a rotation) back and forth. I replaced the dog ears and thrust washer and the splines on the drive block appear normal. If i spin the agitator by hand it moves (with what feels like normal friction) and the dogs catch as they should. Any thoughts or advice would be much appreciated!
For model number RTW4340SQ0

Hello Erin, thank you for your question. To diagnose the agitating problem, I would recommend pulling the agitator out and see if the shaft is rotating to move the agitator when in the wash cycle. If not then it is a problem with the gearcase. If it is then the agitator splines may not be catching on the shaf, and would need to be replaced. I hope this helps!

Spins but clothes are still soaking wet?
PartSelect logo
Hello Rebecca, thank you for writing. The most likely culprit for a washer that spins but still turns out soaked clothing is a drain hose problem. It could be clogged, kinked, or even positioned incorrectly. . For us to locate the correct parts and repair information we will require the model number of the unit. Once you have located the model number, please feel free to resubmit the question and we will be happy to help you. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Once water filled up it would kick off and no action from the agitator..just a buzzing sound..
Following the instructions from the email received from this site was very helpful...given the washers were slightly different then mine in the videos ...it gave me a solid view point of what I would expect...my thrust spacer and the one I was sent was different in length and luckily it wasn't needed for my repair..extremely affordable prices made this no big deal at all..The inner seal was easily exchanged out and the agitator direction cogs were simply replaced..they were a bit wore down but nothing broke...and the reassemble was easy...biggest trouble I had were the clamps holding the switch box on the top they were pretty simple to remove by the instruction video and the direct drive coupler was exactly like the video instructed and was simply replaced..again nothing broke but extreme wear on the inner square was nearly wore to more of a circle shape which I believe was my problem. .The clamps holding the top back in place we're very tricky for me but I got them...plugged everything back up turned it on and the washer filled up and then kicked back into action just like new...I was very happy as well as was my wife to fixed what normally would have been 400 to 500$ repair bill or twice that for a new washer for 4 parts under 30$ and it's now just like new..Thank you !! I will definitely be ordering again from you if and when needed and also give a 100% satisfaction rating to any 1 needing parts..5stars!!!

I happened to have the lid open when agitation began. I heard grinding, and the top of the agitator wasn't moving much.
I shut the machine off and came to the site . I got the impression that it could have been several things. I made the wash and rinse very brief to minimize further damage. My clothes didn't get clean. I just had to pop the hubcap and remove a 7/16 hex head screw to see there was no damage but broken dogs. I hadn't needed to abort the wash. I think they've been broken 15 years but didn't happen to make noise before. if the top piece of the agitator were called the circulator, I would have figured it out years ago. On full loads, clothes didn't circulate very well and tended to come out with deposits of lint. I think friction from a coating of soap scum kept the circulator moving enough to fool me, but it wasn't doing its job. I heated baking soda in water on the stove to make washing soda. I soaked the parts to remove soap scum, paying special attention to the ring of cogs that the dogs would engage. I replaced the thrust spacer because it was cracked. I didn't feel any grease or see any wear, so I think the only function for grease would be to prevent squeaks. Now, with a full load, clothes and water circulate better than I remember.

Upper agitator not turning.
Removed agitator cover with small screwdriver. Removed bolt holding agitator with socket on 6" extender. Pulled agitator up and out. Replaced thrust spacer adding tiny amount of silicone grease. Replaced agitator directional cogs adding small amount of silicone grease. Note direction of cogs first or they will make a loud ratcheting noise. Reassemble. The drawing on this site is helpful.
