Question:

If I put anything more than a small load in my washer the agitator will not spin. Does that mean I need a new agitator or is there any way I can repair it?

Cynthie
Answer:

Hi Cynthie, if your cam kit is faulty it could cause the washer to not agitate properly. I would check the cams first. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Question:

How do you rate your cam size? This kit is called the medium cam agitator repair kit but I don’t know what size cam I have ….

Shannon
Answer:

Hi Shannon, great question! A medium cam kit 285811 (which is this part) is the most common, and is approximately 2.25 inches. We recommend either measuring your old cam, or entering your model number to confirm which size you need. For the long cam agitator kit you can order this 285748, for the short cam agitator kit you can order this 285809. I hope this helps.

Question:

My washer fills with water but will not agatate,what parts do i need ?

gayla mccallister
Answer:

Hello Gayla, that is a great question. If the washer will not agitate after filling with water, most of the time it is the lid switch/latch. If that part is faulty it will not allow the washer to start agitating since the door is unable to lock. Hope this helps!

Question:

With this repair I’ve been kinda guessing at what I need to do but now that the parts are here I need to get the agitator removed and install the agitator repair kit. Do you have any recommendation before I start?

Byron
Answer:

Hi Byron, first you should remove the agitator, then inspect the agitator shaft for damage or rust. If it is bad the complete gearcase will need to be replaced. Next you can install your agitator and cam kit. Best of luck with this repair!

Agitator not working like it should

Ordered the agitator repair kit and it came very fast.. Followed the instructions, the kit had all the parts needed.. Took around 30 minutes, but some of that was scraping the built up scale from the agitator itself, you might not have to do that.. Easy job.. Agitator now works like new.. Very Happy, and so is my wife, the kids looked and said, "Hey,my jeans go down to the bottom now, cool..!!"

The upper agitator, or auger, had completely stopped spinning

The most difficult aspect of the repair was separating the upper and lower agitator, as over the years the minerals in the water had stuck them together. I used a rubber mallet and gave the auger a few sharp blows, and the two main pieces separated. The greatest amount of time involved was the process of meticulously cleaning all the parts that were to be reused in the repair as there was a lot of old grease, dirt and mineral build up coating everything. The old cam dogs were completely gone, they had disintegrated over 20 years of use. I simply dropped the four new dogs in their cut outs on the cam agitator. and snapped on the bearing collar, which is really just a plastic retaining ring that prevents the dogs from falling out when you turn the cam agitator upside down and push it into position to connect the two agitator sections. The new thrust washer easily set in place on the lower agitator, and bolting the assembly back onto the washer shaft was a snap with a 10 inch socket extension. Washer works perfectly now, it spins better than the average political pundit.

Washing machine was not agitating...

Easily found the Agitator Repair Kit online for a very reasonable price. Swapped out the bad worn down parts for the new ones and presto; cleaner clothes. Researching the right model number was a task, but when the parts showed up and were identical I knew it would be easy. Less than 30 minutes to install with minimal tools. And it was cheap. Even if I called my home warranty co. to come out it would still be a minimal $55 service charge. Well worth it, very pleased, would use PartSelect again.

Leaking water on floor, agitator would not agitate

Repairing the agitator was easy.
Removed the upper housing and 1 bolt.
Change the ratcheting mechanism, reinstall, done.

Changing the pump was a bit more involved.
Had to remove the shell.
The old pump was rusted on to the motor
but with the help of some PB Blaster, screwdrivers and a hammer I was able to get it off.

No more leaks on the floor and the clothes actually agitate instead of remaing stationary.

For less than a Plumbers 1 hour of labor I was able to repair it myself and will probably get another 5 years out of this washer. Will it ever die?

Cam edges worn down, top agitator not turning

Gravy replacement! I pulled out softner dispenser,
undid the one bolt securing the agitator assembly, and removed the top half of the agitator. the cam assembly tapped out. I replaced the bolt so I could still use the machine while the parts were on the way. When the part arrived (36 hours later with 3-5 days expected) I removed the bolt again and followed the simple instructions to replace the cam. Saved a ton on repair costs!

Top portion of agitator stopped agitating

I removed the fabric softener dispenser atop the agitator. I twisted and pulled out the plug inside the agitator. Using a socket on an extended wrench, I removed the single nut inside the agitator (keep the agitator from turning with a large screwdriver, etc. and turn the nut counter-clockwise to remove). The agitator came out, and I removed all of the cam parts. I cleaned all of the old parts with bleach and water. Reinstalling the new parts was simple and straightforward as indicated in the illustrated instructions. Now it works great!

Leaking water pump, no agitator movement

First I removed the housing to gain access to the water pump. Upon removal of the clamps holding the rubber hoses, I used a shallow pan to collect the water in the system (2-3 cups). Next, a flat tip screw driver was used to pry off the water pump retainer clips, such action permits the pump to be easily withdrawn from the motor shaft. Prior to my parts purchase, I had noticed rubber particles below the transmission which was due to a worn motor coupling. My second service step was to use a socket wrench to loosen the motor retaining clips for motor removal. The coupling was replaced, although the plastic driven "gears" were left in place and not replaced given they were observed in good condition and not easily removed with hand tools. After coupling installation to the transmission, the motor drive was aligned to engage the coupling. Alignment pins for the motor helped with such alignment. The motor retention clips were reinstalled and tightened - important to check the overall alignment here. Next, the rubber hoses to the pump were connected to make the final assembly step back to motor easy. Last the pump was resecured with the clips.

The agitator was repaired by removal of the softener dispenser - pulling and twisting up. Next a deep well socket was used to remove the agitator bolt. The agitator was lifted off easily. Finally, using the instructions provided a new thrust washer was installed, the agitator cam and cam dogs were installed followed by reassembly of the agitator. The agitator bolt was installed and tightened. The cover plate residing inside the softener dispenser was reinstalled, followed by the softener dispenser itself. The new parts are all now installed....last reassemble the outer housing to the washer...everything works great now.

Washer would not agitate

I ordered the part and watched the installation video. It would have helped if I had watched the video all the way through at least once. Instead I paused and restarted it as I did the repair. As a result I had a hard time putting the agitator back together. Otherwise it was a fairly easy repair and my 20-year-old washer works great again!
