These are called agitator ratchet's and are located beneath the plastic retainer cover which is held in place by a 3/8" bolt. Remove bolt from agitator and remove. You may need to use a flat screwdriver to depress 3 glued tabs within this plastic retainer. From top use hammer lightly tap with screw driver until all 3 are free. Turn agitator over ratchet's are accessible. Order agitator ratchets. Thank you

Agitator loose does not swish clothes around .... can't figure out how to remove the agitator in order to see what may have come loosened or if splines are stripped .... how do you remove the agitator ?


Hello, on the style GE washer there is an agitator coupling under the agitator that will sometimes strip out. To repair this remove the agitator by pulling it straight up and out.
TIP: If you can't get your fingers under the agitator, you can slip a belt under the agitator and then pull by that, once the agitator is off you should see a yellow coupling held on by a 7/16 bolt, remove that bolt and pull the coupling up and off the transmission shaft. Sometimes it will be hard to remove and you might need to knock it up with a hammer. Once it is off you should be able to slide the new one back on, bolt it down and push the agitator back on.
Thanks

It leaves soap on the clothes after it goes thru the cycle and I noticed that the top part of the agitator doesn't move hardly. The washers model # is LSR8233JQO and the serial # is CK4729250, Type 111.


The agitator dogs (part # 80040) that grip and turn the top agitator to push the clothes into the bottom agitator during the wash cycle are worn and must be replaced. It costs about $5 and replacing it is an easy task to do.

Disconnect the power to the washer. Open the lid and remove the agitator cap by prying it with a flat-bladed screwdriver off the agitator top. Remove the 7/16 inch stud and seal holding the agitator to the shaft using a socket wrench with extension.

Lift the agitator off the shaft and pull the top agitator off the bottom agitator. Remove the cam that holds the agitator dogs from the top agitator.

Lay the cam upside down and install the agitator dogs on the slots. Hold the cam with the newly installed agitator dogs on one hand and the top agitator upside down on the other. Slide the cam up into the top agitator and turn the assembly in the upright position.

Align the cam and bottom agitator tabs and cut-outs and place the top agitator with the cam over the bottom agitator. Place the agitator assembly on the shaft and rotate it until the grooves match. Push the agitator down and reinstall the stud and seal. Do not over tighten the stud or the agitator will not spin properly.

Everything works but the agitator


The small plastic pieces that are located under the agitator center cap that grip the agitator and turn it during the wash cycle are worn out. They are called agitator dog ears or clutch dogs. They must be replaced.
  1. Unplug the washer.
  2. Remove the fabric softener dispenser, if there's any, by pulling it off the agitator top. cf99d03.gif
  3. If no dispenser is installed, insert a flat screwdriver between the agitator and agitator cap. Pry the cap off the agitator then remove the upper part of the agitator. cae2ce0.gif
  4. Remove the barrier cap by pulling it up. e07b74d.gif
  5. Use a socket wrench with extension or nut driver to remove the stud and seal holding the agitator to the shaft. 96cc7e9.gif
  6. Remove the agitator mover by pulling it off the agitator. 5f03bae.gif
  7. Turn the agitator mover over on your palm. The cam and agitator dogs will come out on your palm. Pay attention to how the agitator dogs are installed. Remove the worn agitator dogs and install the new ones. c8eb889.gif
  8. If the agitator dogs are not worn, check the agitator shaft. Remove the round rubber seal off the top of the agitator and remove the agitator by lifting it straight up. Call up service if the shaft is worn. ca89530.jpged86a35.jpg
  9. Reinstall the agitator. Rotate it until the grooves on the agitator matches the grooves on the shaft then push the agitator down.
  10. Place the round rubber seal in the groove on the top of the agitator. 5314b95.gif
  11. Turn the agitator mover over and carefully insert the cam and agitator dogs up into the agitator mover until it stops. c55998d.gif
  12. Carefully turn the agitator mover over in upright position.
  13. Place the agitator mover with the cam and dogs over the agitator, lining up the tabs. The cam has a cut-out and tabs across from each other. The agitator has tabs across from each other. All of these must line up in order for the cam to slide down on the agitator.5f7e245.gif
  14. Push the cam down until the tabs snap together.
  15. Put the upper part of the agitator back.
  16. Using a socket wrench with extension or nut driver, insert the stud and seal through the agitator into the shaft and tighten it.
  17. Push the barrier cap and seal down into the agitator mover all the way. Make sure the round gasket is in the groove in the barrier cap. The barrier cap must be pushed down past the holes on the mover to allow the liquid from the dispenser to flow.
  18. Press down on the fabric softener dispenser or cap until it is all the way down on the agitator.

Agitator weak and ineffective


If this is one of the older "Belt" drive machines Id think the belt may be loose. If its a direct drive machine maybe the agitator is stripped? Can you push down on the agitator careful not getting fingers in the agitator vains see if you can stop it from agitating by hand and hear any differance in sound.

Agitator will not move unless you press down on it.


If the agitator is slipping, you may have worn out agitator dogs. Yes, there is such a thing. These are small plastic clips that act in the manner of a clutch for the agitator. The following link explains:

Clothing stuck on agitator with top loading washing machine


Dear Whitworth,

please rate this solution if it meets ur needs, else choose fixya...

The agitator's movement back and forth is important for the cleaning of your laundry. If it doesn't function properly, your clothes won't be as clean as possible. If your agitator does not move, moves only in one direction or its movement is very weak, you will probably need to remove the agitator. Furthermore, in order to inspect the tub for leaks, the clutch assembly, the splines, or to remove the spin drum, you will have to remove the agitator.

The agitator is fastened to the agitator shaft and its movement is driven either by splines or a simple clutch assembly. The splines are usually plastic or rubber nubs on a cylinder that fits over the agitator shaft. If the nubs wear down, the shaft will not turn properly or it will turn weakly. If the agitator is moving in only one direction, the likely cause is the clutch assembly. The clutch has dogs that depress and pop up with each turn. If those dogs are worn, they will not engage properly and the agitator will turn only in one direction.
Various makes and models differ in how the agitator is removed. In some newer models, the agitator just lifts straight up and out. However, in most models you will have to do some combination of the following steps. First remove the fabric softener dispenser, if any. It should either lift or screw off. Next remove the cap. It may lift off, screw off or failing that, it may need to be pried off.
Beneath the cap some agitators are secured in place by a bolt. Use a socket wrench with an extension to remove that bolt. Some Maytags may have a screw near to the bottom of the agitator post that must be removed. Now try to lift the agitator straight up, possibly with a little back and forth rocking motion. Use caution when pulling, the agitator may come loose suddenly and hit you in the face or send you flying backward.
If the agitator is particularly stubborn, you can loop some rope under one side of the agitator at the bottom and then up over a broom handle. Now loop it again under the other side of the agitator and back up to the broom. Brace one end of the broom handle against the top of the washer and lift up on the other end. Double check that you have removed anything that may be securing the agitator in place. Do not use too much force or you may damage the washer cabinet, agitator or injure yourself.

Agitator won't turn. It just spins around if you turn it. There is no restance.


The problem is usually attributed to worn agitator dogs. Yes, there is such a thing. They are located inside the upper agitator and act as a clutch to turn the assembly. You can purchase replacements at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in the your model number and look under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub" heading for item number 18 (part number 80040). Now...if you wish to replace the entire clutch assembly, for a bit more you can purchase the entire kit (with dogs) as item number 22 (part number 285811). The following link explains how to replace them:

Top agitator doesnot work


Your agitator dogs are worn out. They are 4 small pieces in the agitator that act as one way clutches. They allow the top section to turn one way but catch the other way. Pretty simple fix.
If you will post the complete model number I will find the part numbers for you and try to provide instructions on replacing them.
