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:

I replaced couplers, and agitator kit with cogs, but washer still isn't agitating all that well. Any thoughts : Trans, clutch maybe?

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!

The top portion of my washing machine's agitator wasn't turning.

Being a 69-year-old retiree on a fixed income, and having successfully replaced the water shut-off valve solenoid assembly on my automatic dishwasher some months ago, it was nonetheless with some apprehensiveness that I bravely elected to also attempt the repair of my washing machine's paralyzed agitator, instead of enlisting the expensive services of an appliance repair technician. After receiving the agitator top ratchet assembly repair parts from PartSelect, I opened the package only to find that my apprehensions regarding difficulty of installation had been unwarranted. The rudimentary instructions provided with the repair parts were easily understood, and I found them to be quite sufficient for my occasional reference during the repair process. Needle nose pliers, a 3/8" drive ratchet, extension and 7/16" socket were all that were required for me to successfully replace the agitator's old worn-out ratchet pawl assembly with the new one, giving my older model Whirlpool machine a new lease on life, my clothes a cleaner wash, and my ego a considerable boost. The repair parts arrived within only a couple of days of my having ordered them, and were very reasonably priced. I would recommend this site to any do-it-yourselfer in need of quality, bargain-priced appliance repair parts, and will most assuredly be a return customer, should I find myself in need of similar repair parts in the future. Sincerely, Steve

Upper agitator quit working due to broken cam dogs

Used Thrush Water Kit 285587 to replace cam dogs; easy repair, no problems other than the recommended grease for the thrust washer was not supplied in kit; took me longer to find grease (finally used marine ball bearing grease because I had some) than it did to replace cam dogs. Suggest supplying grease in small packet along with kit. Otherwise, parts shipped quickly, good directions supplied with kit, easy and cheap repair.

The upper agitator would not engage (would spin freely in both directions)

I simply watched the brief video supplied on both the page as well as my emailed receipt and performed the steps as directed. There were no deviations required... it was exactly how the video described it. Honestly, I expected a more lengthy and complicated repair!

Agitator bumping and knocking

I removed the agitator top cap first. I reached inside and removed plastic cap. I then removed the 7/16 bolt inside the agitator and lifted it out of the machine. I put my foot on the bottom part of the agitator and pulled the top part off. I removed the plastic bushing in the bottom part and then removed the plastic bushing with the dog ears and the bolt. I used some appliance grease on the bushing on the bottom part and slid the top part of the agitator back in place and replaced the 7/16 bolt. It worked like a charm. My wife says I'm her hero. Thanks for making it so easy.

Replace agitator kit

Removed top agitator bolt lifted agitator out and replaced ring and geared dogs. replaced Agitator top swirl vanes. It would have been nice if the kit included agitator grease and a new bolt and washer.
