You need to pop the cap off the center post of the agitator, followed by removing the plastic cap and o-ring inside. The agititator bolt is located underneath. Tighten with (I believe) a 9/16 socket with ratchet. Tighten until snug. Do not overtighten as this can restrict agitator motion and may crack it.

Now, if you talking about the upper portion (auger) of the agitator slipping, you will need to replace the agitator dogs. The following link explains:

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

The dogs are small plastic teeth that are located under the center post cap used to grip the auger as it turns. They do wear out periodically and require replacement. If you go to appliancepartspros.com and type in you model number you can view them as item number 10 under the "Agitator, Basket & Tub" section. You can use the part number I provided in the link, or use the Whirpool part number on the website. Both numbers cross reference to the same part. A very inexpensive fix...

If you still need assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

My Whirlpool LSR8233EQ0 washing machine making loud whining and banging noises during spin cycle only...any ideas on what to replace?


Two possibilites would be a loose agitator (some agitators can betightened from the top, check for tightness)If you can't tighten the agitator from the top, turn the machine over ( you will probably need to disconect water hoses first) and check the underside. From here you should be able to determine if the agitator is loose or more likely you've got a loose drive belt.

Drain line clogged on Whirlpool model ET1CHMXKB09. How do I access the drain line?


Hello.

Washing machines, like any other mechanical device, occasionally needs servicing. A common problem with most old washing machine is that the spinner, or agitator, drain,or stops rotating during wash cycles. Fortunately, most washing machine problems are easy to troubleshoot. Any do-it-your self offer can fix it; here's how.

TOOLS NEEDED TO SOLVE PROBLEM ARE BELOW.

Bucket and rags,Screwdriver,
New drive belt (if necessary),
New drive motor (if necessary).

1 Unplug the washing machine, and turn off the water supply to the machine. If necessary, remove the water hoses from the back of the washing machine because they may be in the way of the access panel.

2 Check that the agitator is seated correctly by opening the lid of the washing machine. If it's loose, pop off the top of the agitator--if there is one--and tighten the bolt that holds the agitator in place. Or, in some models, simply pull straight up and then reseat the agitator.

3 Remove the access panel located in the back of the washing machine by unscrewing the screws holding it in place. This allows access to the drive motor.

4 Press on the drive belt that works the agitator. If the belt moves more than 3/4 inch, tighten the belt to fix the spinner problem. If the belt is worn or cracked, replace the belt.

5 Replace the drive motor, if tightening or replacing the drive belt doesn't fix the agitator. Purchase a new drive motor at a wholesale retailer. Disconnect wiring, remove screws holding motor in place and insert new motor. Screw into place, and connect wiring.

6 Check for any black substance leaking under the washing machine. This might indicate a clutch problem, if the washing machine spinner is not working. Contact a professional repairman to replace the clutch.

Thanks.

My washing machine basin on a Whirlpool top has come loose.


Hello, down the center of the agitator there is a nut. You need a very long socket shaft to get to it, tighten this and it shold solve your problem. I hope this helps.

Loose agitator


Remove the center dispenser. Under the dispenser is a plastic cap with a pull handle on it. Pull the cap straight up and you will find a mounting bolt underneath. Using a socket and ratchet, tighten the bolt snug. DO NOT overtighten as this may cause damage to the agitator. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number, there is an excellent exploded view diagram of the agitator components under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub" heading. If you still require assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

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.
