I have a Whirlpool ultima Care II top loader and the agitator does not turn forcefully as it should. It kinda moves a bit and jerks a bit but not like normal. If during the wash cycle I hold my hand on the top where you put the fab softner and apply pressure/push downlike on it..and kinda push it forward a bit...during the cycle it spins much better??? have tried nothing else. Can you help? thanks Ms. Lee

I have a Whirlpool Ultra Care II. Serial No. CK2481971 I need to know how the top agitator works. Should it be moving with the bottom part of the agitator?

Try and turn it by hand . If it turns one way free and not the other way it is ok. If it turns both ways the rachet dogs are probably worn.

Whirlpool top loader washer not agitating

Hi, Do you know if the lower half of the agitator is working? THere is a dog kit that might need replaced in the agitator to get the top half to work. If neither half agitates, there is probably a transmission issue. Start the washer with no laundry in it and see if either sections of the agitator work.
I hope this helps you.

Agitator not agitating

Replace agitator dogs, which should be available at your local appliance parts store for around $10. Replacement takes about 20 minutes (for a Whirlpool washer, at least.) Remove the center filter and you'll see a bolt (11 mm in the Whirlpool.) Remove the bolt, which you may be able to do with hand-turn socket wrench unless you have an extension for your ratchet. Removing the entire plastic agitator assembly is easy when tugging from below.

This next part may note be needed, but: Once you have the assembly out put it on the floor and stand on it. To remove the free moving part of the agitator, grab the fins and give it a good tug or two to free it from the lower assembly. It may take a bit of effort. Remove the inards, replace the four dogs, and reassemble.

It was *really* easy to do...and certainly a lot cheaper than having someone come out or, as we thought we were headed, to replace the washer.
