Question about Washing Machines
If the entire agitator is not moving you will have to replace it. If the top is not working properly, you will need the 4 little gears inside the top calle d agitator dogs. The set of four cost about $8.00 and are available at any appliance parts store. To get to the agitator dogs you will remove your fabric softner dispenceer, if you have one. Then pop off the top lid of the agitator. It will have a small spot to insert a screwdriver and pop it off. Then reach down inside the agitator and pull out the next little cover. Be carefull not to loose the seal. Then you will need to unscrew the bolt that you see in the bottom. Once you have done that the agitator will lift off. The top will not pop off the bottom and you will be able to see the four little tear shaped gears called DOGS. I love the name. You should be able to install the new ones fairly easily and then just line the top of tha agitator up with the bottom and push it back down into place. If you look down inside the agitator you will see two little clips that you will need to line up. It is really an easy repair. Let me know if you have any other questions.I hope this will FixYa. Please rate me when you can. Mike
