Loose agitator on Whirlpool Ultima Care II washer

Agitator seems loose. Machine working fine, but agitator makes loud noise when running. How can I tighten it up? I think my son got some heavy blankets wrapped around it during a wash.

    My Whirlpool Ultimate Care Imperial LSQ9244EQ0 shakes violently on the spin cycle and the adjitator seems to be too loose. I have tried tightening the bolt in the adgitator (that tall thing in the middle) but it wont tighten any more.

It could have stripped the spline on the plastic agitator. there is a bolt at the middle of the agitator and you can access that thru the top . remove the top cover and you can remove the bolt using a deep socket.

once you remove the agitator you can look at the dog agitator. these a 4 pcs plastics that works like a one way wrench.

be careful on the location, they are very hard to put back.

check also the spline on the inner part of the plastic assembly.

they do get stripped.

if they are, replace the whole agitator.

tnx 4 using fixya,

I put a down comforter in my Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washing machine (I have done this at least 50 times). Last time, it got hung up around the agitator and started making a funny sound. The agitator...


Pull the agitator off and check the plastic drive hub at the top of the agitator shaft. It should not be split, or have it's internal splines sheared off. If this all looks ok, then likely transmission problems or a slipping drive belt (motor to transmission). Good luck!

Whirlpool washer agitates but makes a very loud noise


It sounds like the agitator teeth, that are plastic, are worn out. To check this, take the agitator cap off with a strong knife or flat-head screw driver, and check the circular teeth inside, to see if they are worn out. These plastic teeth are the agitator part of the washer, where as the spinning part is a metal set of teeth, at the bottom of the agitator. You see the metal teeth, when you take the agitator completely out. You will have to replace the agitator if the teeth are worn out.

Whirlpool washer Mod# TWAS750PQO, Ser# CR3520005


is it possible that the washer was overloaded? if so the agitator has little plastic "gears" that move the agitator one way only, they could have made the sound. 
you can also check under the washer to see if anything (like a coat-hanger or something) is interfering with moving parts of the washer
