Question about Whirlpool LSR7333 Top Load Washer
"Where is the best place to start clutch or gears?" Answer= Neither.
What you have is a failed set of agitator dogs. Don't ask me why they call them dogs. I really don't know. Maybe it's because they "clamp" on to a relatively flat surface and the friction of the grip provides the "cam" action... kinda like "plate dogs" in iron work. But I'm speculating.)
Easy and cheap repair. The part number you'll need is 80040 (<--- plug that number into a search engine or call your local appliance parts place). What you'll need is a 7/16"socket, an 8" extension, a ratchet, and (possibly) an 8' pair of needle-nose pliers.
Pull the top off of the agitator. If yours has the "flat top", just pry it off with a knife. Then you'll see a mostly opaque cap down there... remove that (<--- just pull it out). Now use your socket and ratchet and extension and remove the bolt that's exposed down there.
Now lift the agitator up and out of the basket. Place the agitator on the ground and put your feet on the wide part, the base. Then lift up on the "screw"/agitator ... this will separate the two sections. Now pull the cam out and you'll see the dogs (<---the ones that need replacing). Remove them and install the new ones. There ya go!
All that's left now is to rebuild it in the reverse order and you're done.
If you have any questions, just write. If this solved your problem then show some FixYa love and rate it as Fixed!

Hi, It is the dogs that catch so the upper half of the agitator can move. Remove the cap/rinse cup on top the agitator. Then remove the inside lid and locate the 7/16" bolt that hold the agitator.
Pull the agitator off of the shaft and seperate the 2 piece agitator. Now you will see the dags and they will need replaced.
I hope this helps you. Please let me knwo if I can assist you further.
