What are "dogs"? Thanks, Kirk - Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

    I can turn the agitator by hand in one direction (which would pull the laundry down) but I can't turn the agitator in the other direction.

  • kwhatley Mar 27, 2008

    As best I can tell by running the machine at various stages, the sound and smell only happens when the agitator is supposed to be operating. It sounds like rapid clicking (like something is not connecting or misfiring) and then the smell happens. It does not happen when the tub is filling with water, draining water or spinning the tub to spin dry the clothes. Only when the agitator is supposed to be working.
    Thanks VERY MUCH for you patience and help!

Well basically they are these ear shaped plastic peices that are in your top half of your agitator under the cap that catches on a cog that makes your agitator spin one way during agitation and lets loose going the other way

    is this when there is no water in it or when it is going through a cycle does this happen in all the cycles or just one

    this may sound weird but try changing speeds on it and see what happens

Hi, Just replace the dogs. Once you remove the 7/16" bolt, the agitator will seperate.
The dogs are the same part# on all models.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Need to get the agitator off


that's funny [feed dogs]they are called, dog ears but you do now have to feed the dogs because their not working.lol.hey you will have to get those parts on-line or at an appliance store.lowes wont carry those that i know.anyway if you pop the cap of the agitator you will see a piece that has a small handle.pull up and remove that piece.then you will see the bolt to remove to pull the agaitator[its a 7/16]take a good look at how its together before you take apart.......ok now that the agitator is out place on floor,put feet on the bottom piece and pull up on the top piece til comes off.then dump out the piece in the top w/dog ears in it........install new ears in that piece and reinstall upside down,inthe top piece of the agitator.then apply pressure on the dog ear retainer and place over the bottom piece of the agitate aligning the two little tabs sticking up on the bottom piece of the agitator with the little cut outs in the dog ear retainer....now take your socket to place bolt back on,put some plastic wrapper or package from dogs in the socket and push the bolt into it.then place the bolt in the hole of the dog ear retainer .now lift agitator up and place onto transmission shaft and tighten bolt and place cover back on................boy that was a lot of words.that should do it for you God bless you Tiffany ,from tom

NO,your transmission is probably ok!! Inside your top end of agitator are these 4 plastic parts called "dogs" they need to be replaced.To be 100% sure ,do this first,Fill upthe machine on small load and while its washing look to see if the bottom end of agitator is moving back and forth ,if it is replace the dogs.In some machines you have to change the upper part of agitator.If the agitator is not turning at the bottom than,remove the top of agitator cover so you can get a extended half inch socket in to it and pull the agitator up and check the transmission splines.If they are smooth and cannot grab the agitator than your trans, is bad.
