Whirlpool Washer making loud noise during agitation. Agitator appears to be very loose

I have a Whirlpool Top Load Washer LSB6500PW2. It has been making a very loud noise during agitation. The agitator seems very loose and I have a parts diagram but do not see how it comes apart. I was thinking that maybe screw (2) in diagram is loose. But I do not see how you would access it. Or maybe it is something completely different.

    My new Whirlpool (don't know about the model number, but I bought it in Sept. of 2007, mid-price range) was making a clickety-clack sound--which might make you think of a loose agitator. I found out on older models a certain internal piece was all plastic (don't know its name--but is round, black, and 2 inches in diameter with a white plastic triangular piece that fits with it)--but it was replaced on newer models--mine--with a piece with a metal center. This was so the part would last longer. It was that metal that caused all the noise. I had the repairman replace the part with the all plastic one--and the noise was gone.

My Whirlpool LSR8233EQ0 washing machine making loud whining and banging noises during spin cycle only...any ideas on what to replace?


Two possibilites would be a loose agitator (some agitators can betightened from the top, check for tightness)If you can't tighten the agitator from the top, turn the machine over ( you will probably need to disconect water hoses first) and check the underside. From here you should be able to determine if the agitator is loose or more likely you've got a loose drive belt.

Very Noisy Operation


you will have to access the bottom of the agitator from the back of the machine. Either you have loose bolts or else you agitator bearings are shot

Whirpool lsq9244eqo fills and drains but does not spin or agitate


It sounds like the agitator gripping teeth are worn out. To check this, take the agitator cap off with a strong knife or flat-head screw driver, pull the cap off and check the plastice teeth and four plastic hooks that grab the teeth. If they are worn out, then you will have to replace the agitator. To replace it, you will see a nut that is between the circlular teeth. Unscrew the nut and pull the agitator up hard.

Whirlpool washer agitates but makes a very loud noise


It sounds like the agitator teeth, that are plastic, are worn out. To check this, take the agitator cap off with a strong knife or flat-head screw driver, and check the circular teeth inside, to see if they are worn out. These plastic teeth are the agitator part of the washer, where as the spinning part is a metal set of teeth, at the bottom of the agitator. You see the metal teeth, when you take the agitator completely out. You will have to replace the agitator if the teeth are worn out.

Loose agitator on Whirlpool Ultima Care II washer


it could have stripped the spline on the plastic agitator. there is a bolt at the middle of the agitator and you can access that thru the top . remove the top cover and you can remove the bolt using a deep socket.

once you remove the agitator you can look at the dog agitator. these a 4 pcs plastics that works like a one way wrench.

be careful on the location, they are very hard to put back.

check also the spline on the inner part of the plastic assembly.

they do get stripped.

if they are, replace the whole agitator.

tnx 4 using fixya,

NAV5800a top loader washer


The inside of your agitator became worn, and possible strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. The loud noise mustly occurs during the spin cycle. If you hear this loud noise your load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it.

Agitator fall off and knocking noise during spin cycle


there should be a rubber washer with the bolt. if it is missing the bolt may back of during agitation. also the threads on the transimision may be stripped. Some Green lock tight found in most hard ware stores should help. the knocking noise is probably due the agitator coming loose.
