Dog ears worn down; upper agitator not moving
Pulled off the dispenser. Used socket set to remove bolt. Removed entire agitator out of washer. Placed both feet on bottom of agitator and then pulled up on the upper agitator. It took some muscle due to the years of washer use. I used a flat-head screwdriver to weaken the plastic clips holding down the old bearing-driven cam. Once I got the upper agitator off, the guts were easy to pull out. Then I just re-assembled with the 3 new parts (the Cam Driven, the Dog Ears, and the Bearing-Driven Cam).

Agitator was skipping, making grinding noise
The repair was easy, first you take out the fabric softener dispenser, you will then see a plastic cap at the bottom. the plastic cap pulls right out. Once you remove plastic cap you will see the top of a 11mm screw. Use an 11mm socket with 6 inch extension to remove the screw. The screw is a fine thread so it takes alot of turns to unscrew. After removing screw the whole agitator should pull out of washing machine. The agitator has two parts, lets just say a top and a bottom. Once out of the machine turn the agtitator upside down and tap the top part with a rubber mallet, it will fall off easily and the cam will come out with it. Once you have done this you will see how easy it is to replace the cam and put everything back together. My washer works like new. my only trouble was finding the part, until i found this web-site Part Select, The Whirlpool site did not even offer a diagram for my washer. So thank you Part Select from me and coworkers for the part and fast delivery. I can now wash my clothes again. Yeah !!!

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!

Teeth on the agitator cam were worn down, so would not agitate.
On my Whirlpool washing machine I first pulled off the top cap piece of the agitator. No clips it just popped off.
Second I reached down inside the agitator and pulled straight up on a dome-shaped piece that was a little difficult to get out but it has two metal handles that allowed me to hook my fingers around it. Once I pulled hard enough it came out.
Third I used my left hand to hold the base of the agitator still while using a socket to break lose the big nut down inside the agitator. After getting the nut off I pulled straight up on the base of the agitator and pulled the whole unit out of the washer. Here's where I got stuck. I wasted about 45min trying to pry open the little plastic tabs down inside the agitator that hold the cam in place. What I finally did that I should have tried first to step on the base with both feet and pull up hard on the agitator cylinder (that has the spiral fins on it) at it popped off and popped off the cam at the same time. After that reassembling everything with the new cam was straight forward (just reversing all the steps).
I hope this helps you.

pump leaking, agitator not turning
First I went to this site and read what everyone had to say on leaking pumps. After finding the model number, I looked at the parts list, and found what parts I thought I would need. First I shut off the water and unpluged the washer Replacing the water pump was very easy after reading what other people had done. I pulled the washer out from the wall about 18 inches and tilted back on a 45 degree angle. The pump was now in plain sight and helt in with two slide clamps. Using a pair of plyers I remover both clamps from both hoses on the pump. By pushing to the outside of the pump I was able to remove both of the slide clamps. This allows the pump to be lifted out and off the motor shaft. As my washer had just started leaking " about one week" the pump slid off the shaft easy. There was no rust on shaft. Pump shaft has a slot in it so the pump can only go on one way. By reversing the way I removed the pump I was able to slide the new pump back onto the shaft and slide the slip clamps back over the pump. Replacing both hoses and both clamps. Now pump was in place. I pulled the washer away from the wall and slid back into place. That took care of the pump. For the top side I removed the top part of the agitator by pulling up and removing the part that holds the softner. Under this was a piece of plastic that I was able to lift out. Under that was a 12MM bolt with a rubber washer. Using a scoket set I removed the bolt and washer. Lifting up on the agitator it came right out. Pulling on each end of the agitator I was able to pull it apart. Inside was a large plastic washer and agitator directional cogs all in one piece. This piece just lifts up and off. I replaced the old piece with the new on and slid the two agitator back togeather. Setting the agitator back into the washer and put the 12mm bold and rubber washer back on. Then I put the plastic back on and set the top softer cup back in place. Snapping in the bleach dispenser was very easy, just shap into place. Pluging the washer back in, and turning back on the water I ran the washer with no clothes in it so I could check for leaks and make sure everthing was working. Repairing both parts took about 30 minutes and now the washer is like new.

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!!!

Top half of aggitator was not moving.
Replaced agitator cog/clutch unit under the softener dispenser. It is the second time I've replaced it in the last 3 years, maybe it has been loaded too heavy, I'll have to have that talk with everyone else on the family who does laundry.
