I have bought a new spline for my machine. I greased the spline and lined up the spline and the agitator. When I pushed hard on the agitator, it still would not go all the way to the bottom of the tub. Can you give me any advice?
Make sure that the splines are lined up with agitator and slide the agitator down. Once down you will have to push real hard to get the agitator to pop into place because there are fingers that wrap around the bottom of the coupling.
After putting new part on how do I get the agitator to go back on right ?
Answer Hi Joel. On top of the transmission shaft is a separate ribbed Agitator Spline Coupler part # WH1X1944 that holds the agitator on. If the outer hardened rubber splines are stripped off then it will be difficult to realign the agitator replacement. Use a little white grease on the trans. -to - inner coupler splines when installing. This part comes with instructions. Thank You.
How do you remove the agitator coupler? Rubber part slide around some. Can it be glued on? This is an older model and there does not appear to be a crew to lossen it. Thanks.
Answer Frank, The coupler is a "friction" fit and has splines on the inside to attach it to the transmisson output shaft. You will need a "gear puller" to lift it ory remove it from the shaft. As a last resort, you could try cutting it off with a "dremel" tool or chisel and hammer, but you need to be careful. Good Luck
How do I install the agitator spling coupler? I am afraid that hammering it on will damage something else.
Answer Hello John. Get the coupling WH1X1944 started on the shaft, then tighten the bolt in the center to seat the coupling onto the shaft.
The washer has eaten my apron. It is wrapped around the base of the agitator. How do I get the agitator off to unwind the apron from the washer?
Answer Hello Jackie. If there is no bolt in the center of the agitator, you will pull upward on the agitator to remove it. These can be very tight and hard to remove from the coupling WH1X1944. Hope this helps.
