Question about Washing Machines
The grinding noise is coming from the worn agitator dogs (part number WPL285746) if the washer
rinses, spins, and drains but does not agitate during the wash cycle. The agitator dogs must be replaced to address the problem. Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.
Remove the fabric softener dispenser by pulling it off the agitator top then look for the prying location on the agitator cap and insert a flat-blade screwdriver between the agitator cap and the agitator then pry the cap off.
Using a socket wrench, usually 7/16", with extension, remove the stud and seal holding the agitator to the shaft then pull the top agitator from the bottom agitator.
Pull the cam that holds the agitator dog ears from the top agitator and lay it on its top and install the agitator dog ears on the slots provided.
Hold the cam on one hand and the top agitator on the other then slide the cam up into the top agitator and turn it over so that the agitator dog ears do not fall off. Reinstall the top agitator into the bottom agitator then fix the agitator assembly into the shaft.
