Ultimate Care won't agitate

The agitator is stripped, it works if I put pressure on the fabric soft. dispenser or remove the dispenser, the cover and stick something in between the spindle and the plastic housing around the center bolt. Is it costly to repair this machine or should I replace it? It's a great machine and plenty big enough for us...family of 6, anything smaller would be awful! any tips?

    Thanks, moviejunk539. Do you think I need to replace the plastic housing around the bold? for the past month, I've had 2 carpenter pencils jammed along side of it, which does keep it agitating.

    Where do I get these agitator dogs?

Hello Friend, Your problem is a simple quick fix. Sounds to me like you just need to replace the agitator dogs, Under $5, they are fairly easy to replace: Pack of 4 pcs. Just remove the agitator bolt and remove, then remove upper piece and pull out assymbly (easy) just drop in the new agitator dogs and re-install assymbly. Then re-install agitator and your done. Tim,

Agitator won't spin. Only swivels back and forth when I apply direct pressure down on the center of agitator.


This a very common concern and an easy and cheap fix the agitator cogs are worn out you can order the parts online part number wpl285751 or just 285751 about $4.00 (agaitor directional cogs) or dog ears. or a complete repair kit #285746 about $14.00 I would go with the kit. With parts in hand pop of the fabric softener dispenser then you will see an agitator cap with a pair of pliers pull up and remove the cap,now you will see one bolt remove this bolt and you will be able to remove the top part of the agitator replace you worn parts and reinstall and you will be agitating like new,,,Sounds like a lot I know but its really a 10 minute job Good Luck

How do you remove an agitator from a ge washing machine. I removed the fabric softener dispensor, but there is a clear plastic cover underneath that cannot be removed.


Well, first we have to determine if it is a Whirlpool washer or a GE washer, as they are quite different. I'm going to assume its a Whirlpool. When you remove the fabric softener dispenser from the center of the agitator, there is an opaque plastic cover under that. It must be removed to reveal the agitator retaining bolt underneath it. They can be quite hard to get out sometimes, you just have to be persistent. If you break it, it is replaceable as a separate part, part number W10074580.

One part of agitator moves the other part doesnt.


Two-Piece Agitator: Bottom Works, Top Does Not - Whirlpool brands

Some Whirlpool brands washing machines employ a two piece agitator. The bottom is call the agitator and the top is usually referred to a 'Mover'. A multi-piece cam and bearing assembly connects the two and allows the top portion to index.

If the bearing or cams become stripped or damaged, the mover will often not work. Fortunately, Whirlpool produces a cost effective agitator repair kit that replaces all of the critical components in this cam assembly. There are three different repair kits. They differ in the height of the cam.

Agitator Removal Instructions:


Remove Dispenser or Cap:
Some models of washing machines utilize a fabric softener dispenser that resides on top of the agitator. This dispenser simply snaps onto the top of the agitator. Other styles utilize a decorative cap. To remove the dispenser, simply grab it and firmly pull up. To remove the agitator cap, insert a small flat-head screw driver into the seam between the agitator cap and the upper agitator (mover). Use a twisting or prying action to pop the cap off of the agitator.

Remove Internal Debris Cap:
Inside the agitator you will see a cap with a raised handle, much like that of your automobile. Simply reach into the agitator and twist the cap while pulling up. This will remove the cap and its o-ring.

Remove Agitator Stud:
When looking into the agitator assembly, you will notice a single nut in the center of the agitator. Use a socket kit or nut driver to remove this bolt (agitator stud).

Remove the Upper Agitator (Mover):
With the bolt removed you should be able to remove the upper half of the agitator (mover) by simply pulling up. Sometimes pulling up will actually remove the whole agitator assembly. If this happens, place the Lower Agitator on the floor and stand on the flat lip. Then Pull up to separate the Upper Agitator (mover) from the Lower Agitator.

Remove the Cam and Clutch Dogs:
When you remove the upper agitator (mover) it contains the cam and clutch dogs. Tun the assembly upside down. The cam and dogs should then come out.

-- Stop Here if Replacing Cam Kit --

Remove O-ring:
The lower agitator remains on the transmission shaft. On the top of the agitator, there is an o-ring. Remove this o-ring.

Pull the Lower Agitator:
All that remains is the lower agitator. This can be removed by simply pulling straight up on the agitator.


Agitator Installation Instructions:

Set Lower Agitator:
Slide the lower agitator onto the transmission shaft. Rotate the lower agitator until the splines in the shaft match those in the agitator. Once aligned press the agitator down. Install the o-ring into the top of the lower agitator.

-- Start Here if Replacing Cam Kit --

Assemble Cam and Dogs:
Turn the cam upside down. Place the small round ear of the dog into the corresponding slot on the cam. Repeat this for each of the four cams.

Install Cam and Dogs into Upper Agitator:
Invert the Upper Agitator (mover) and slide the cam/dog assembly inside. The cam should be pushed into the mover until it shoulders. Then rotate the whole assembly upright.

Install the Upper Agitator (Mover) on the Lower Agitator:

The lower agitator has two tabs that stick up that are 180 degrees apart. These tabs fit into two slots on the bottom of the cam. Align the matching tabs and slots and place the Upper Agitator (mover) and cam assembly onto the lower agitator. Push down until the cam snaps onto the Lower Agitator. If the dogs fall out during this step it is necessary to return to the 'Assemble Cam and Dogs' section above and start over.

Install the Agitator Stud:
Place the bolt (agitator stud) into the hole in the bottom center of the cam. Use a socket kit or nut driver to tighten the bolt .

Install Internal Debris Cap:
Install the o-ring into the groove on the OD of the debris cap. With the o-ring in place, push the cap into the Upper Agitator (mover). It is important that the cap is pushed past the ports in the Upper Agitator (mover) so that the wash water can enter and exit as designed.

Install the Dispenser or Cap:
The final step is to replace the top cap. Both the cap and the dispenser simply snap into place. Just make sure they are installed as far down a they will go and are firmly in place.

Top of agitator not agitating


Hello,

This is a problem with the parts that we called dog agitator. They are 4 pcs plastic parts that function as a lock on a ratchet handle drive.

the top agitator would turn one way and these dog agitators prevents it from going the other way.

To replace it, you have to remove the top softener dispenser, remove another plastic cover that covers the bolt from water. remove the bolt and you can pull the whole agitator out of the tub.
Be careful on dismantling, it is tricky to put it back. Remember where every part goes.

Tnx for using Fixya,

The top part of my agitator doesn't spin. I see others with the same problem, but can't find where the answer is listed. I can't figure out how to disassemble.


your unit has agitator drive "dogs" that drive the top of the agitator and they do wear out.
take off the fabric softner dispenser or the top cap from the agitator. then look inside the agitator and you will see a plastic cover with pull tabs on it. pull up on that cover and then you will see a bolt that allows you to remove the agitator. once out you can take the top off and get to the drive dogs. cheap to replace, about 5 bucks.

Agitator Dogs


take the cap or fabric softener dispenser off the top of the agitator. under it should be a clear plastic cap with a little handle on it. take it out. under it should be a bolt (7/16) with a rubber seal under it, take it out and this will release the agitator and you will see the plastic dogs inside the agitator.
