    I have a whirlpool extra large high capacity 9 cycle washer. It appears that there are two agitating parts, the bottom part and the top part, which has spiral fins on it. the bottom part works great and turns back and forth great. the top part that pulls the clothes down to the bottom of the machine, fails to agitate. Is this easy to fix? is this the "Dogs" part.

    Ours also the Upper agitator will not agitate, all other cycles appear to be normal.

    I believe the problem with my washer may be the lid switch you mentioned, because the agitator will start when I bang the lid several times. Would you happen to have a solution I may follow? Thank you! The model number for my washer is LSB6300PW1 and it is an Ultimate CareII top loading washer.

    yes, everything else works fine but it just doesn't agitate on the top agitator.

Thanks for the help, I pulled the agitator and took it into a repair shop, cost me $10.00 for the parts, re-installed all works good.

I had the same problem. I replaced the agitator dogs and it works fine. I called a repair company and they wanted $100 to come out and look at it. I did it myself in 15 minutes and it cost me $7.40. Here is the link I used to reference the removal of the agitator. http://www.davesrepair.com/DIYhelp/DIY285770.htm

There are several things that can cause your machine to fail to agitate. First of all, you need to ask yourself a few of these questions:

1. Does the washer fill normally, initiate agitation cycle and just the agitator is not moving? If so, the transmission and motor coupling are likely good and the agitator has probably worn out the dogs that cause it to grip properly. The agitator dogs will need to be replaced and you shouldn't need a new agitator. (rough estimate = $5.00 to $6.00).

2. Does the washer fill normally, but stops when the agitation cycle is to begin? If so, I would suspect a faulty lid switch. The lid switch will allow the washer to fill, but will not advance the timer beyond that point on some models. (rough estimate = $35.00).

3. Does the washer fill normally and makes a loud grinding noise when the agitation cycle begins? If so, I would suspect your motor coupling is bad and needs replaced. (rough estimate = $18.00 to $20.00).

4. Does the washer fail to fill at all? If so, I would suspect a bad fill valve, pressure switch remaining shut off and/or timer. (rough estimate for fill valve = $35.00, timer = abt $100.00).

These questions are not all inclusive, but these are some of the more common problems I have encountered. If you can provide me with a little more symptom elaboration, I can lead you in the right direction and get a part number and a better price for you. I will need your EXACT model number (located somewhere along the lid opening. Post back with your comments if you need my assistance. A good majority of the problems associated with Whirlpool top loaders can be easily repaired by the average consumer without assitance from a repairman. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Whirlpool top loader washer not agitating


Hi, Do you know if the lower half of the agitator is working? THere is a dog kit that might need replaced in the agitator to get the top half to work. If neither half agitates, there is probably a transmission issue. Start the washer with no laundry in it and see if either sections of the agitator work.
I hope this helps you.

My whirlpool ultimate care 2 washer works great, however, the agitator misses and clicks before it catches up


Is this a two piece agitator? You may just need dogs, they are inside the agitator. Rotate the top of the agitator back and forth, top should engage the bottom portion when turning counter clockwise.
