Actually, neither, if it is like most top-loaders, you will need to remove the rear sheet metal panel. To do this is pretty easy; there may be 6-8 screws around the edges and possibly a couple more somewhere in the middle that tie the back panel to an internal brace to prevent rattling of the sheet metal. Some machines may have the hose attachment point (actually the input to a temperature adjusting divertor valve) that goes through the sheet metal making it necessary to remove the water supply hoses. The sides and front are normally joined from the inside and the top may be attched inside as well. The whole housing, with the exception of the back panel, is dropped as a unit over the innards of the machine.

The agitatae doesn't seem to be cycling the


The agitator is made in two parts. Upper and lower. The bottom part does the actual agitating.
The upper part is supposed to be loosely fitted. It just screws down the clothes to contact
the bottom agitator slowly.
The top part turns one way, and slips the other way. By the action of what is called "Dogs" inside
the top part. These dogs are probably worn and need to be replaced
Take the top off the agitator and there is one bolt in the middle of the agitator. use a long extension
to reach the bolt and remove it.
Pull off top agitator (keep it straight up so you don't lose the dogs_
Go to local Appliance store and ask for Agitator Dogs.
Replace Dogs exactly as they came out
When you re-assemble the top it will be loose. This is normal.
Good Luck!

Kenmore washing machine agitates slow.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

I don't think it has to do with any sort of belt instead it seems that something is stuck under agitator or the agitator needs replacement. You can view this video if you want to replace it yourself:


Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My daughters GE same model washer will not agitate. Stop agitating after just a few months after being purchased. I believe this is a trait from this type of washer. Perhaps GE needs to recall them all...


Premature failure usually is a reuslt of overloading and/or not enough water. So, there is a rubber drive component that fails and some models have agitator pawls, or dogs that fail. Both are fairly easy to change, and not pricey, except for labor..

I need to fix the agitator on my washing machine as i it not swirling the washing during the cycle


The agitator dogs are worn and needs replacement if the motor runs and the bottom part of the agitator agitates but the top part of the agitator does not. The motor coupler or drive belt is broken if the washer fills and the motor runs but no agitation at all. The lid switch is faulty if the motor does not run at all. Please let us know which among the cases stated above the washer is in and indicate the make and exact model number for specific and accurate troubleshooting and repair advice and for the exact replacement part numbers.

The washer runs through the cycle, but does not fully agitate.

Top part of agitator appears to becoming disconnected from bottom part. bottom is attached to motor and is working.


Hello Friend, Your problem is easily solved. You need to replace the agitator dogs. To replace all you have to do is pop the top cover off of agitator and remove bolt. Pull up on agitator and remove from washer. Next remove upper agitator from lower agitator. Inside the upper agitator top piece you will see a mechanism that has 4 little ratcheting teeth, these are called agitator dogs. Just replace them with new ones and re-install agitator. This should solve your problem. Happy to help, Tim.

Agitator spins in one direction


The purpose of the upper portion of the agitator is to push the clothes in a downward motion. As the agitator moves the dogs grab and on the backward srtroke the top portion rotates a quarter turn. In the spin mose the agitator only goes in one direction or your clothes would be torn to shreads.As the washer rotates back and forth, the dogs grab the inner walls of the upper agitator and that forces the clothes into a downward movement to the bottom of the tub. These dogs will wear out. To test whether or not these are bad just grab the agitator while in wash mode. The dogs should advance the top portion easily. If not then they are worn out. To replace them you must remove the agitator and sit it on the floor. Hold the base down with your feet and yank the top upwards. After seperating the 2 pieces you simply install the new dogs and line up the bottom with the top being careful not to break the little tabs on the bottom agitator that hold the top in place.

Top Agitator is not moving


This washer has a set of cheap plastic dogs that grab the inside wall of the upper agitator to move the clothes downward and help them get a better cleaning. The older style These dogs will wear out. To test whether or not these are bad just grab the agitator while in wash mode. The dogs should advance the top portion easily. If not then they are worn out. To replace them you must remove the agitator and sit it on the floor. Hold the base down with your feet and yank the top upwards. After seperating the 2 pieces you simply install the new dogs and line up the bottom with the top being careful not to break the little tabs on the bottom agitator that hold the top in place. The newer style you simply pop the cover of the agitator and use a 3/4 drive extention to unscrew the upper agitator. replace the dogs and put the top back on. Nothing could be easier.
