Whirlpool washer 1987 model CA7800XPW1: the agitator slow and/or stops only to resume to full speed at other times. I can't get the agitator off; got the back off and the belt looks OK; it seems like...

The agitator should be able to be removed once the bolt in the center of it is removed,the oil you see is from the transmission that contain the gears that make the agitator swoosch back and forth,if ya see a lot oil its leaked out of the trans. and the internal gears are stripped.It could be that the center spine of the agitator itself where it connects to the trans. shaft is stripped but unless the agitator comes off where will be no way to see if that is it. IF you want to invest in tl that most likely you will never use again there is a tool out that is a rubber bladder that slips under the agitator and is filled w/water when its filled it expands and pushs the agaitator up from the bottom

How do you remove the nut under the agitator? Ours is leaking gear oil from bearing under agitator. Have the agitator off. GE WBSR3140DW

theres nothing under your agitator, first take cover off your agitator there should be a small bolt
holding it down, take that bolt out then grab agitator from bottom and pull up it should come off easy.

The slow weak function of the augar

the reason for the "weak agitation " is a bad set of agitator dogs. by removing the center fabric softener cup, you can get to and unscrew the center shaft bolt7/16. after removing the bolt, the agitaor will remove and the agitator dogs canbe replaced. part number 80040.youll need to split the agitator top and bottom to insall them . they simply slide into place.

Agitator top part is lose

pop the top off your agitator. There is 4 small plastic pieces that make the top part of the agitator work. Remove the 7/16 bolt in the center of the agitator and pull the top of the agitator out. Replace what they call a dog kit. Go to any parts store and they will know exactly what your talking about. They are olny about 6 bucks. its an easy fix so no need for a service technician.

I have roper washing machine

I don't know if the agitator is turning or not but the whole agitator is lose from the bottom part of the agitator. The washer also leaks. We have checked all of the hoses etc and there is no problem with that. We wonder if the leak isn't coming from the agitator being lose.
