    Can't seem to keep the agitator still to get middle bolt off. Are the "dogs" these little white rubber wheels that are flush to the rim of the agitator?

Simpson Encore 605 agitator bolt comes loose - does it need loctite?


The wear is preventing it from tightening correctly, loctite won't be a long term fix, it will still come loose again due to the forces put on the bolt by the vibrations of the agitator. The only way to fix it is to replace the agitator.

The agitator seems loose on my Maytag top loading machine.. model LAT9206BAE it started this after one of my kids overloaded the machine.. works fine but makes a loud clanging noise while washing.. almost...


Use a 1/4 inch nut driver to tighten the set screw to the agitator shaft. It is about 3 inches up from the bottom of the agitator on the side of the agitator.

Kenmore 70 series clicks loudly inside agitator like it is missing. It will agitate. It is like turn click click turn click click click turn. Not the rhythmic noiseless turns it had a week ago


If its just the agitator not working, but everything else does, you may just have a worn agitator cam assembly, worn agitator dogs, loose agitator bolt, or all of the above. The following link explains what agitator dogs are and how to access them:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs

Whirlpool manufactured washers use a split agitator design. The top half is known as the "auger, while the lower half is the agitator. Between the two pieces is a cam assembly, with small teflon teeth known as "dogs". There's also an agitator bolt that holds the entire assembly to the center post.

If the auger (top half of the agitator) is slipping, I would suspect the dogs or cam assembly need to be replaced. The part number for the dogs is included in the link I provided. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam assembly which includes the dogs, the cam, the cam seal and thrust bearing.

If the entire agitator appears loose or slipping, check the agitator bolt to ensure it is tight. DO NOT overtighten as this can restrict movement of the agitator or damage it. Tighten until snug.

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER (located along the wash tub rim under the lid) and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Agitator not working


Hi, This agitator is a 2 piece agitator. Can you see if the lower half on the agitator is working properly? If the lower part is working and the top is not, you will need to change the agitator dogs. If neither half are working, you might be having transmission issues.
To change the dog kit, re,ove the top cap on the agitator and locate a 7/16" bolt. Remove the bolt and the agitator will lift out. Pull the agitator apart and the dogs are 4 small plastic pieces inside the top half of the agitator.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

On a two piece agitator the top section doesn't work but the bottom works okay.


This problem is usually attributed to either a loose agitator bolt, or the agitator dogs wearing out. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r823955-replacing_agitator_dogs

The upper portion of the agitator is called the "auger". If it is loose, simply tighten the bolt under the center post cap. DO NOT overtighten as this can cause damage to the agitator, or restrict motion. Just tighten until snug. If you have questions along the way, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Loose agitator Maytag LAT2600AAE


Look toward the bottom end of the agitator. There should be a small indentation where a 10mm screw is. This screw holds the agitator the the transmission shaft. Sometimes the screw works loose and needs to be tightened.
