Whirlpool stylemaster 4217141 REV A Agitator/spin cycle broken upper agitator spins by hand but tub won't spin


open the lid and get a model #, sound like all you need is agit dogs # 80040. then remove top of the agitator, could be a softener dispenser. under that you will find a plastic cap, pull up with needle nose pliers. under that you will find a 7/16 or 1/2 bolt, remove the bolt and the agitator can be lifted off. the agitator can now be split into to pieces, turn the top half over and the assy with the agit dgs will fall out. simply replace and reassemble and DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN BOLT. just snug it up. should be fine.

How do i replace the agitator in my old heavy duty whirlpool washing machone?


Hello.

The Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washing machine is atop-loading clothes washer. The washer has several cycles to choose from,including cycles for washing normal clothes, permanent press items, delicateand items marked "Hand Wash." To do its job, thewashing machine relies on an agitator, located in the center of the wash tub.The agitator rotates during the wash cycle, moving the clothes around the washtub so that they are cleaned equally. If the agitator is broken, it will notsufficiently agitate the clothes and must be replaced. ·1 Unplug the washing machine from the wall outlet or turn off the power supplyin your service panel. · 2 Open thewashing machine lid and remove any clothes remaining inside. · 3 Remove thefabric softener cup by squeezing the bottom lip of the cup and lifting itstraight off. · 4 Pry theagitator cap off of the top of the agitator with a flat-head screwdriver. · 5 Remove thebolt at the bottom of the agitator, using the socket wrench with extension, andthen remove the agitator from the washing machine. Tip the agitator to removethe bolt and washer. · 6 Install thenew agitator onto the drive shaft. · 7 Secure thenew agitator with the bolt that you originally removed. · 8 Press theagitator cap and fabric softener cup back into position on top of the newagitator. · 9 Restore powerto the washing machine to complete the repair.
Thanks.

Machine is working but clothes are not getting clean


Hello,
Check the agitator. you should be able to, by hand, easily turn it in one direction without turning the tub while the other direction turns the tub also. If the tub does not turn in one direction with the agitator the you need a new clutch dog assembly or the whole agitator. Hope this helps. Good Luck

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio Model #WTW6200SW0 A F51 code keeps coming up. I would like to know what that means and what part i need to fix it. My husband does all the repairs on our appliances. Thank You.


well the code means that the tachometer or Rps sensor has detected a spinning problem but i would first push in the top clips on the right and left front corners about an inch in on the front and hinge back top lid remove top plastic cap ring of washer and check for stuck clothing between innertub and outer tub sometimes you will have to remove tub to get all clothes out remove center dome agitator center cap and remove 7/16 bolt pull agitator out the pull inner tub out then extract clothes be very carefull these stainless tubs are very sharp and will cut your hand like a cheese grader

Washer leaving alot of lint on clothes


THE ONLY FILTERS YOUR WASHER HAS ARE LOCATED UNDERNEATH THE AGITATOR. REMOVE THE AGITATOR CAP AND TAKE OUT THE 7/16 BOLT DOWN IN THERE AND PULL THE WHOLE AGITATOR OUT. IN THE TUB YOU'LL SEE FOUR FILTERS AROUND THE AGITATOR SHAFT ASSEMBLY THOSE ARE THE ONLY FILTERS YOUR WASHER HAS. OTHER THAN THAT IT IS NOT THE WASHER CAUSING THIS PROBLEM. WHEN YOU WASH CLOTHES IF YOU CANNOT SEE THEM GOING DOWN IN THE TUB BY THE AGITATOR AND OTHERS COMING BACK UP ALONG THE OUTTER EDGE THEN YOU ARE OVERLOADING THE WASHER. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU.

Agitator doesn't turn


Take the top off the agitator, pull the cover out, there should be a bolt to unscrew, after this os off take off the top and you will probably need some agitator dogs.

Leaking tub seal, slow spin cycle


It's not worth fixing!
If it's 10 years old or more, better off replacing it with a newer machine which will be much more efficient!

Not worth the money to fix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
