Had same problem with my washer. Check to see if there are little plastic tags holding top/bottom of agitator. after replacing dogs just ensure that you realign with tags so they do not break off.

Agator doesn't work


Is this a whirlpool washer? The agitator dogs need to be replaced. Remove top cap on agitator, then plastic cover inside it, then remove bolt, then pull agitator off. Top can separate from bottom by standing on bottom and pulling up on upper. Go to Repairclinic.com to find agitator dogs.

Top part of agitator doesn't turn.


You need agitator dogs. The part number is 80040. The agitator needs to be removed and separated to replace these components. They are geared teeth that strip out over time. Hope this helps _MJ_

How to separate auger from agitator. whirlpool ultimate care II


When you look down into the agitator, are there 4 white plastic points that look slightly melted or otherwise deformed? If so, using a small flat head screw and a small hammer, separate the white plastic from the surrounding translucent plastic. Once you've done that, it should easily pull apart.

The top part of the aggatator does not turn


Washer has trouble agitating... Check the agitator dogs inside the top of the agitator, they are bad for wearing out, sometimes the agitator may only agitate one way when the dogs are worn out. This is an instruction sheet that came with the last parts I ordered for a Whirlpool/Inglis style direct drive washer agitator. If you need to replace your agitator dogs, please see this link for some repair aid.

No agitation


I have a Whirlpool Utlimate Care II LSQ8520JQ0. For those having a problem separating the upper and lower agitator halves, here's how I solved it after about 2 hrs of aggravation.
Called Sears and Whirlpool with no help (didn't have tech manual...go figure).
I saw the same post with the problem with melted hooks (I called them tabs) ontop of the dog housing being melted. You can differentiate the melted tabs from the dog housing as the dog housing is usually clear plastic (after wiping all the crud off) and the tabs are white as they are part of the agitator. There will be four white tabs on top of the dog housing. They look both smashed and melted. I took a flat head screw driver and and hammer and chipped off the white melted tabs visible on top. I inevitably also chipped some of the dog housing but only marginally. Once chipped off you'll see the tabs are actually rectangular in shape. At this point I EASILY pulled the top and lower halves apart. Those retangular tabs are the molded part of the agitator housing extending down past the dog housing. You're home free at this point.
It's the melted tabs on top of the dog housing that keeps you from separating the halves. What a pain but finally figured it out.
