Estate washer top agitator won't spin. I need dog kit. Confused on the cam length.
Answer Hello Morrie! Your model TAWX700JQ0 uses the medium cam repair kit, part number 285811. Thanks!
Which agitator repair kit do I need short,med or large?
Answer Hello John. Based on the model number you need to order 285811.
i need to know on the agitator if they turn together or different ways to the right or left. and if they dont if this will make a lot of noise win it is running the clothes are wrapping around the agitator and is this the right parts.
Answer Michael, The agitator dogs in the cam kit 285809 allows the clothes mover 3363003 to move in one direction(counterclockwise). The lower agitator, still moves back and forth. If you can turn the clothes mover in both directions then you'll need the cam kit, you also want to rmove the lower agitator and check the splines on the inside of the center opening for damage or white plastic shavingts on the metal output shaft that the agitator is attached to, either of these components will make noise in the agitate cycle if they are "stripped" or loose on the shaft.
Two questions. One, need to know if I have short, med, or long cam. I would like to order the kit 285811 that comes with o ring, since this one does not, but looks like that kit is for the med cam? Second, I have removed the agitator bolt, but the agitator will not come out, despite my tugging. I can tug harder, but concerned I may break something. In the video, it just comes out with no effort. Shall I really use some force to remove?
Answer Hello Bri. Based on the model number you will order the short cam kit 285809. Some agitators require alot of force to remove the unit from the washer.
Trying to remove bolt part #AP3046456 by holding agitator but am finding it extremely hard to remove--I'm afraid of breaking bolt off if I apply too much pressure. Any suggestions for easy removal? I sprayed some penetrating oil inside & am letting it soak in hopes that it will help loosen the bolt.
Answer Chuck, Hopefully the penetrating oil will help, but don't count on it. You could try tapping down on the socket wrench, while you're turning the wrench counterclockwise. This may help the "break" the loctite and allow you to remove the bolt. Otherwise, you'll need to drill it out, or use a blot extractor as the first attempt. Thanks and Good Luck
I have a Whirlpool LA5550XPW3. In a recent answer you indicated that the bottom agitator and the top agitator (filter) snap together and the agitator bolt (I assume you refer to part AP3046456) holds the two items tightly together. That is not possible. Take a look at part AP3046456: you will see that the diameter of the bolt head is much narrower than the inner diameter of AP2906586. Simply put the bolt inside one end of the filter and it will come out at the other end! The question remains: what holds the top agitator and the bottom agitator together? Thanks
Answer Hi Gus. The Agitator top part # 63753. The agitator bottom half part # 387838. The bolt with washer is part # 358237. The agitator cap is part # 3355758. The breakdown only shows all of these parts going together to make up the total assy. You are correct that the bolt goes completely through the top half of the agitator and only bolts the lower half to the transmission. The upper half snaps together as you first align the two half's correctly. There are slots and retainer clips that are internal and the 2-halves align up together. Maybe the bolts washer that also should have the rubber washer is missing and allowing the bolt to fall through. Thank You.
