How do I disassemble the top part of the agitator on Whirlpool II Ultimate Care washer.

The bottom part of the agitator works fine, but the top part does not work properly. How can I get the top part of this off? Is there a place I can get a repair manual for this product? I cannot get the agitator apart to get to the broken feed dogs. Can you help me?

The top cover just pulls off, then as you look down the center of the agitator, there is a round plastic cap that just pulls out. You may have to tug hard for either or both of these. Then there is just the center bolt that you take out and the entire top of the agitator will come off. Usually, the "dogs" in the agitator wear out and need to be replaced. Cheap and easy fix. Note: you may want to get a new o-ring for your cap when you take this apart.

SOURCE: How to separate auger from agitator. whirlpool ultimate care II

When you look down into the agitator, are there 4 white plastic points that look slightly melted or otherwise deformed? If so, using a small flat head screw and a small hammer, separate the white plastic from the surrounding translucent plastic. Once you've done that, it should easily pull apart.

Cannot remove top agitator from bottom agitator on whirlpool ultimate care 2


Easy once you have removed the agitator put both feet on either sides. In other words hold it down and pull. The factory tabs needs to be broken. If that fails used a long screw driver and try and break off the tabs.

Hello, the agitator seems to work (and turn) well at the bottom but it seems stuck at the top (hardly turns. What can I do? Thanks, Isa


If it has a fabric softener dispenser in the top, it is most likely a waxy buildup from the lanolin in the softener. Disassemble and clean.

Top agitator does not move on a whirlpool LSN100KQO Ultimate Care II commercial washer. how can i repair that?


I have run into the same problem and spent some time with it. There are little pieces that catch and release the top aggitator called dog agits(dogs). They are cheap and easy to replace but the problem is this aggitator is put together so that the top and bottom piece do not come apart. I dont know how this will resolove.

My whirlpool ultimate care 2 washer works great, however, the agitator misses and clicks before it catches up


Is this a two piece agitator? You may just need dogs, they are inside the agitator. Rotate the top of the agitator back and forth, top should engage the bottom portion when turning counter clockwise.
