Our agitator on the Simpson esprit450, keeps slowly coming loose after we tighten the bolt using an extension, does it need a washer under the bolt or a new agitator ????

Hi just read your posting.1st thing to do is to undo the screw holding the agitator to the shaft and lift the agitator out.Then purchase some Loctite thread lock from you local hardware store.Put some thread lock on the thread of the bolt and re screw the agitator back in place.Leave the machine for 24 hours and this will fix you problem.I use this method when I am repairing machines for customers.Please reply if you need further help and also to let me know how you got on.Good luck and hear from you soon.

Top agitator not working properly

Check the agitator by turning it back and forth. It should work like a ratchet (turns one way, locks the other way).If you're able to turn it in both directions, the agitator dogs are worn and need to be replaced. To do this remove the agitator cap and the bolt that holds down the agitator. With the bolt out you can remove the top section of the agitator (auger) where you should see 4 small white or beige plastic gears (dogs). Replace those and it should be ok.

Agitator dogs part number is 80040

Loose Agitator

Usually, there is a bolt that holds the agitator on. If you remove the cap off the center of the agitator, you should find a bolt underneath that you can tighten back down. Adding a little thread lock to the bolt wont hurt.
