Re: Stripped the washing machine
If you stripped, it's apart. the manual will just show some assemblies. Go to the whirlpool website or one of the many appliance sites. You will need the model and possibly the serial number if you are trying to put it back together.

There is a special socket set made for stripped nuts and bolts. Sears sells it. There are about five sockets in the kit, each covers a couple different sized stripped nuts/bolts. The socket is spiraled inside and tightens onto the stripped head as you turn it counterclockwise to remove..... DW
I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire washer not spinning and making a grinding sound as if something were stripped. I also see that changing out the door lock and switch assembly, did not help the issue.
I would suggest contacting either the manufacturer or your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose what is causing the grinding sound and better assist in resolving the grinding sound. Hope this helps.
Hi just read your posting.As I understand from your posting, the center spline on your pulsator is stripped and you would like to replace only the center spline instead of the whole pulsator.Is this correct?Are you in Australia?If so then reply back and I can give you some contact details on where to obtain a pulsator from.I dont think you can buy just the center piece only the whole pusator.There are places that sell the pulsators secondhand which will save you some money.Please reply with additional information and I am sure I can help you further.Looking forward to your reply.
the agitator shaft could be stripped out. does it sound like the motor is working during the wash cycle or is it just idle? This is a common problem with ge washers the agitator strips out on the transmision and needs to be replaced.
This is a sign of strained agitator components that are about to be damaged or stripped. I recommend pulling the agitator and clutch. inspect each device for stripped components and uneven ware. replace the agitator and clutch if found to be faulty.
Check the transmission(gear box) for damage as well. fill with oil if needed.
helzie, sounds like your drive block stripped out. You would get this from the top. You would need to remove the tub ring, agitator, lock nut and pull the basket from the tub. I will attach some pictures so you can visually inspect it. The part is cheap, part number 389140, but you can expect to pay around 140.00 labor. Check out the pics, you will see that the spin tube has 2 ears that sit in the drive block slots. See if your is stripped out.
