I have a Whirlpool washer, model LSB6200PQ1. The upper portion of the agitator shaft is spinning, rather then just turning in one direction increments so I thought I may need the agitator repair kit AP3094543. However, before I order the repair kit, I want to be sure there isn't an issue with the functioning of the lower part of the agitator as well. I know the upper portion of the agitator shaft should only turn in a clockwise direction. Is that the same for the base of the agitator as well or does the lower half of the agitator work differently? Can you help me determine if I need the repair kit or the agitator assembly AP3132864 please? Also, if I need the agitator assembly, will it include the parts from the short cam agitator repair kit?
Thank you for the help.
This issue would be caused by the agitator repair kit. The upper agitator will rotate clockwise but should stop intermittently then twist again. The lower agitator would rotate back and forth with the transmission shaft. The repair kit should solve the issue that you are having.
