I replaced the dog ears but when I put it back together and try to use it the agitator will not catch on the ears unless I pull up on teh head? There is a black thick ring washer that was broken guessing maybe that needs to be in?

Agitator won't move


Thes units have litlle plastic dogs that make the agitator agitate, and when they break it will stop.
Remove the agitator and inside there are 3 to 4 plastic dogs or ears and these are more than likely bad.
Pry the agitator cap off by inserting a screwdriver into the cap's notch

2) Pull the inner cap (if present) off - many Whirlpool machines use this inner cap, with a handle, to gain access to the center bolt

3) Remove the bolt in the center of the agitator (earlier models used a 7/16" hex-head steel bolt)
On older models, grasp the bottom portion of the agitator and pull the entire assembly out of the washer. (Some recent models allow just the top portion's removal to access these 'dogs')

5) Older models - place the agitator on the floor, and, standing carefully on the bottom portion, pull the top half off. Turn it over, and the dogs will be accessible for replacement.

6) Newer model dogs can be replaced once just the ratchet ***'y is removed. There are several versions currently in use, but most can be replaced without removing the bottom agitator half. All '4-dog' versions use the 285770 (or #80040) kit, regardless of the cam ***'y style. (Really old agitators, rarely seen now, used a pair of 2 larger dogs, which are a different part number)

7) On older versions, be careful to align the two tabs when inserting the upper ***'y back onto the agitator bottom half. When these are aligned, they will friction-fit the two halves together, making it easier to reinstall the ***'y. Handle it only by the bottom half to prevent pulling the top half off when reinstalling.

8) Lightly lubricate the agitator cap's rubber gasket using a bit of dishwasher detergent, and push it back into place. (On the Whirlpools with an inner cap, lube that cap's o-ring too - makes it easier to snap into place)dcramer531_112.jpg

The agitator tries to rotate, but instead jerks, but doesn't rotate in normal motion. It also makes a ratcheting snapping sound.


Does the lower half of the agitator still operate normally? (Back and forth) Can you spin the top half (spiraled part) of the agitator in both directions with out the lower half moving? If so then you have a worn set of agitator "dogs" they are little plastic ears located in the upper half of the agitator and catch the notched inner section of the agitator to make the top action work like a corkscrew, slipping one way and driving the other as the lower half goes back and forth.
To get at these parts you will need to remove the agitator, Remove fabric softener dispenser or cap on top, and look down inside tho opening.
You will need to remove the plastic cover inside that has two ears sticking up, pull on one side or the other and it should pop out, there will be a rubber seal around it so it will be a little difficult to remove.
Now you will have access to the bolt that holds the entire agitator in the machine. The agitator dogs are located right on the outer edge of the center cup that the bolt goes through. To access them you will want to seperate the two halves of the agitator and flip the top half upside down while holding your hand inside it to catch the cup with the dogs in it. Part number 80040, for the dogs.
Good luck to You!!

the agit. dogs need replaced look in your phone book 4 a dealer near you to get this part you need. remove softner despenser and inner cap then you will need to remove bolt 7/16th or 3/8th after removing bolt pull up on agit.it is 2 pc if it all comes out as one pc. ok you need to stand on lower 1/2 and pull up you now have the top pc in your hands. you will see some type of cup that holds in the dogs remove by flipping up side down install new parts and put back togther a small tip use the bolt
to put cup back in when you are ready to put back together put top pc of agit. over cup up side down you will need to line up with 2 or 4 ears on bottom pc. it should click now reinstalle sound hard but very easy just keep preassur on dog cup at all time with bolt and socket have fun

Trying to get the cam drive off to replace dog ears


Remove the bolt and get the agitator out the washer.
Set the agitator on the floor,put your feet on the base and yank the top part off. Get a piece of pipe and place the cam with the new dogs on the pipe. Flip the top piece of the agitator over and shove the cam up into the top, then flip it right side up and position it so you can snap it back together . Make sure you don't flatten out the 2 tabs on the base. NOT GOOD. Once you snapped it back together carefully slide it back into postion on the washer spline and take cake not to make it come back apart. Put the blt back and don't overtighten. Comprende? LOL
