There are what they call agitator dawgs that have probably stripped out, think i might have saw a video on how to repair them on you tube (search whirlpool agitator repair). simole enough to do you will need to remove the agitator using a 7/16 socket. Part number 80040.

My roper washers top half of the agitator stoped


you will need a flat blade screwdriver long plyers 7/16 socket and ratchet, the verry top of the agitator prys off look verry close you will see a spot to put the screwdriver, then take the plyers and carfully reach in side and pull on handle of the domed shaped piece gently. then remove the 7/16/ nut. then lift off the corkscrew top portion of the agitator. you will see 4 tear drop shaped pieces called dogs part # 80040, look at the way there in there so they can be put back right later, use a camera take pictures as you go to each step for reasembly.the thrust washer will probly need replacing to, it's the plastic washer that the cork screw part sits on. when you go to put it back together use some vasaline where the dogs go in the holder, this will help hold them in place durring assembly. look close at holder for square holes they need to line up with the flat pins on top of lower portion of agitator. use an exstention and a large socket to hold dog holder in top in agitator top wile puting it on lower half. use the bag the dogs came it to hold the bolt in the socket til you get it started, then pull bag off before tightening. use two exstentions to put inner cover back in then put main cover on you are done,be pacient this may test your pacients.

Washer does spin but barely agitates


It sounds like the agitator dogs are worn.
To remove the agitator, pry off the agitator cap and remove the bolt that holds down the agitator. With the bolt out pull up on the top section of the agitator (auger) to remove it. Underneath the auger you should see 4 small white or beige plastic gears (dogs). . Replace those and it should be ok.

Agitator gear is stripped


just place both feet on the agitator as it sits on the floor and lift up on the top half. there are plastic tabs on the bottom half that hold the two pieces together. you will need to remove the 2 tabs before putting the 2 pieces together. the bolt that you screw the agitator down with will hold the 2 pieces together.

Roper washer, agitater stripped?


It sounds like you need to replace your agitator dogs (yes, there is such a thing). They are small plastic pieces that are used by the upper portion of the agitator to grip as it turns. This is a common problem when they wear out. If you go to searspartsdirect.com, there's an illustration of what I'm talking about under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub Parts" heading. Item number 10 (part number 80040) is what you need to replace. Just type in your complete model number in the "Search by Model Number" block. The following link provides you with step-by-step instructions on how to do this:

You can find these same parts at repairclinic.com and a cheaper price. Use the part number provided. I hope this helps you.

PS The item is priced for a package of 4.

Washer fills and spins but does not agitate


Im sorry to say, it sounds like the transmission in the washer may have gone out, the unit it self sits at the bottem of the main agitator shaft under the the tub, you may be able to have this replaced, but shop around for the right price.
