Remove the bolt and get the agitator out the washer.
Set the agitator on the floor,put your feet on the base and yank the top part off. Get a piece of pipe and place the cam with the new dogs on the pipe. Flip the top piece of the agitator over and shove the cam up into the top, then flip it right side up and position it so you can snap it back together . Make sure you don't flatten out the 2 tabs on the base. NOT GOOD. Once you snapped it back together carefully slide it back into postion on the washer spline and take cake not to make it come back apart. Put the blt back and don't overtighten. Comprende? LOL

What can I do to help prevent my dog from getting an ear infection? I clean his ears regularly; however he still seems to be getting infections.


I found a great natural remedy that works in preventing ear infections in dogs. I use it for my dogs and they have been ok for almost a year now.

THE FOLLOWING ALL NATURAL REMEDY
PREVENTS EAR INFECTIONS! This recipe is not meant to be used with Zymox. This should only be used once the ears are completely healed.

Keep in mind that it "will not" cure an existing ear infection.

Once you get your dog's ears to a healthy state either by using Zymox like we recommended or with the help of an antibiotic from your veterinarian, start using the following remedy weekly to prevent future infections. This works by raising the Ph level in the dogs ears.

Purchase an eye dropper bottle and the following ingredients
from your local pharmacy.

2 Tablespoons of Boric Acid
4 ounces of Rubbing Alcohol
1 Tablespoon of Glycerine

Shake the bottle before each use to thoroughly mix. Place a small eyedropper full into each ear. Cup the dog's ear and massage gently. Allow the dog to shake his head and gently blot dry any excess on the outside of the ear.
Do this weekly.

If ANY IRRITATION occurs - STOP using the recipe immediately!

Should I give my dog pigs ears?


I have read a lot of forums about this and it seems as though they are not that popular among dog owners. A lot of them say that the pigs' ears make their dogs sick with loose stools and others say that their vets have told them that pigs' ears are crawling with bacteria. So I wouldn't advise you to give them. Check out this forum: http://www.dogforums.com/dog-food-forum/951-pigs-ears-bad.html

I have a Bernina 135S and I managed to get a pin caught in between the plate and the feed dogs. I removed the plate, took out the pin and put it back together although now my feed dogs only move up and...


Check whether the feed dogs are coming above the stitch-plate at their maximum height. They should be about 1mm above the stitch plate when driving the material under the foot. I assume, by the way, that you haven't got the feed-dog drop button pushed-in at the handwheel end !!! If the feed-dogs are lower than 1mm, or not above the stitch-plate, the dog cam cam-foller will need adjustment. You have to remove the front cover to get at this and it should be done with a special gauge, so really its a service agent job, however, for what its worth;
With the front cover removed to gain access to the free-arm mechanism, look to the right of the hook race and on the end of the bottom drive shaft there are two black plastic cams . The right-hand one regulates the movement of the dogs front-to-back in association with the stitch-length stepper-motor, which drives the upper shaft in the free-arm. The left-hand cam regulates the up-down movement of the dogs and the cam follower (a piece of right-angled plated metal) has to be adjusted to determine the maximum height of the dogs aboe the stitch plate. The cam follower rubs against the top edge of the dog cam. There should be a small spring that pulls the cam follower down onto the cam at the front - if that's missing, the feed-dogs probably wont move quite correctly. To adjust the dog height, turn the hand-wheel until the feed-dogs are at their maximum height, unscrew the small screw in the left-hand side of the cam follower a couple of turns (dont, for goodness-sake, take it out !) - the feed-dogs should then pop-up above the stitch-plate. You now have a problem without the proper gauge ! You need to gently push the dogs back down against spring pressure until they are the correct height above the stitch-plate and tighten the screw on the cam follower. This should, at least, get over the problem - it wont be exactly right without the gauge and there is another adjustment that should be done to ensure the front and back of the dogs are at slightly different heights, but it should be good enough without this.

Good Luck !!!

Whirlpool Duet washer


Many Whirlpool built 'direct drive' washers (including Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, and Inglis) use a 2 piece agitator. There are cogs called 'dogs' or 'dog ears' and a cam between the two halves of the agitator which can wear leading to a clicking/ticking sound and reduced movement of the top agitator section during the wash cycle leading to poor cleaning results. In most cases these worn parts can be replaced without much cost or difficulty.

The top section of the two piece agitator is usually removed by first pulling off the agitator cap then removing the inner cap. Underneath those there is usually a 7/16" bolt which will need to be unscrewed. Once removed, the top agitator half can usually be pulled straight up to access the defective components.

The clutch cam and clutch dogs usually responsible for problems should be found in the now removed upper portion of the agitator assembly.

Although just the agitator dogs are available separately, a worn cam will eventually result in the same failure again. All worn components should be replaced together to reduce the chance of the condition recurring.

Agitator wobbling from the stem. it comes right


Those are the agitator dog ears. They have teeth that grip and turn the top agitator during the wash cycle. It must be replaced when damaged or worn.
  1. Unplug the washer.
  2. Remove the fabric softener dispenser by pulling it off the agitator top.
  3. Look for the prying location on the agitator cap and insert a flat blade screwdriver between the agitator cap and the agitator then pry the cap off.
  4. Use a socket wrench, usually 7/16", with extension to remove the stud and seal holding the agitator to the shaft.
  5. Pull the top agitator from the bottom agitator.
  6. Pull the cam that holds the agitator dog ears from the top agitator.
  7. Lay the cam on its top and install the agitator dog ears on their slots.
  8. Hold the cam on one hand and the top agitator on the other.
  9. Slide the cam up into the top agitator and turn it over so that the agitator dog ears do not fall off.
  10. Reinstall the top agitator into the bottom agitator.
  11. Reinstall the agitator assembly into the shaft.

Removing agitator from Kenmore washer


On my Kenmore 110.28922790 Washer, after removing the cap on the agitator, only the top of the rod was visible. The plastic cup over the rod has a square insert which my 5/8 in. flat wood drill bit fit into. Turned it counter clockwise and unscrewed and removed the plactic cup. Then the cam assembly with the wornout dog ears lifted out. The bolt did not need to be replaced to replace the dog ears.
