You put all the dogs back in the cam set them up into the upper portion with a piece of pvc pipe or equivilent and invert onto the base, lining up the tabs on the bottom with the holes in the upper portion being careful not to smash the tabs on the base that hold the upper portion onto the agitator.

Mover agitator slips

The agitator bolt may be loose, or the dogs may need replaced. The following link explains how to access and repair:

You can view what agitator dogs look like at Just type in your model number and look for item 18 under the Agitator, Basket and Tub heading. A replacement kit only costs about $5. For a bit more, you can purchase the entire agitator repair kit for about $11 (item 22). The exploded view diagram can also assist you.

Your agitator has a cap that comes off the center post, followed by an air gap cap inside. The air gap cap just pulls out, exposing the agitator bolt. The upper portion of the agitator (called the "auger") will lift off once the bolt is removed.

NOTE: Make sure when you reassemble the agitator that you remember to reinsert the air gap cap and that the rubber o-ring gasket is intact. Without it, water will eventually work into the gearcase (transmission). Also make sure you do not overtighten the agitator bolt. Doing so may damage the agitator or restrict its movement. Tighten until snug.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Adgitator removal

Just follow these steps:

1. Remove the center dispenser from the top of the agitator. It should just pop off.
2. Locate the white plastic cap underneath and pull straight up to remove.
3. Locate the agitator bolt underneath and remove using a socket and ratchet (can't remember the size). Hold the agitator still with one hand in order to loosen the bolt.
4. With the bolt removed, grasp the agitator by the bottom flanges and pull straight up. It should lift off the center post.

NOTE: Sometimes these agitators will stick due to years of detergent accumulation. You may have to wobble it back and forth to get it loose.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Ouch! Was it from over-tightening or trying to remove the bolt?
Really, I need more information...
Regardless, you'll have to take the thermostat housing off and remove that broken portion of the bolt. The reason I asked if it was from overtightening, it should be a little easier since the threads aren't locked-up, to remove the bolt section. Hopefully there's enough bolt shank sticking up to lock some vice-grips to.
If the bolt broke trying to loosen it, you may have to drill into the broken bolt remnant and use an "Easy-out" to extract it.
I know... big pain. You can do it. Hey, stuff happens. Good luck!

How to remove the agitator

do you see a bolt? if you do you just need a long extention, socket and ratchet, if not the agitator justs pops off. grab it from the outside edge at the base (bottom) on both sides and **** up, the older ones are alittle harder to get off but they will come off just snaps on

Wobbly agitator

If you remove the center cap from the agitator there should be either a bolt or a square recessed socket that you can attempt to tighten. The bolt is either 7/16" or 1/2". The recessed socket can be tightened using a 3/8" to 1/2" socket adapter.

Make sure the agitator is seated properly on the center post. You can accomplish this by finding the mounting bolt and loosening it enough to free the agitator on the post and push down evenly on the bottom flanges at the base of the agitator where it meets to bottom of the tub.

Try this and let me know if it helps. Post back if you need further assistance.
