The dogs in my agitator are worn out and I need to replace them. I'm not sure if I have to buy the whole agitator or if I can just buy the dogs...... I removed the bolt but am unable to get to the dogs. Can you help?
Answer Hello Emilee. Remove the agitator from the washer and place it on the floor. Grasp the top and while standing on the bottom, jerk the top part upward to separate the two pieces. Now you can access and replace the dogs 80040. Hope this helps.
My gearbox is roaring I need to replace it but I cant get it off of the agitator.
Answer Hello CHG. There is a bolt in the center of the agitator that will need to be removed to remove the agitator. The agitator can be tight, but once the bolt is removed, it lifts out of the washer. Hope this helps.
If the agitator is messed up can it cause the washer to leak
Answer Hello Katrina, the agitator should have no bearing on the washing machine leaking. We would suggest you pop the top and hinge it back, and then remove the front panel. With the front removed you should be able to see where the leak is coming from.
My washer agitates but it all of a sudden stops for a little and it tries to agitate the it will start up like normal and it keeps repeating this when its supposed to agitate. Should I replace the whole agitator?
Answer Hello Katrina! If the motor is running the whole time, you will need to see if the agitator is stripped. Take the agitator off and underneath there will be teeth that catch to agitate. If they are stripped you will need a new agitator, part number 131605901. If it is not stripped, you could be looking at different issue, such as the transmission. Hope this information helps!
