For Whirlpool Agitator with Filter (Part Number: AP3019581)

Answer or Comment

Bought this set but the filter part (top piece) dosen't fit very tight. It comes off in the spin cycle & bangs around in the tub. It seems to fit on the old agitator but that one is cracked. I had one of these sets replaced already becaused it was broken when I recieved it. It dosen't fit tight on that agitator either. Not sure what to do ? Please help

Steve M. for Model Number LA8200 XWW1

ANSWER Hi Steve. Make sure the 4- locator tabs under the agitator part # 387838 are all placed correctly as you align the agitator on the shaft. Then Follow the service manual instructions... "Manual clean lint filter- Clean the filter at the bottom of the agitator after every load for the best filtering results.To clean: 1. Lift off the agitator barrel. 2. Wash or wipe the filter clean in the bottom of the agitator barrel. The filter is not removable.3. Replace the agitator barrel and snap lint filter it into place." Make sure it snaps into place firmly or it will come off. " Thank You.
