SOURCE: not agitating

Check your drive coupler. Its the rubber piece between the motor and the transmission which makes the washer agitate and spin. the easiest way to check it is to lean the machine back and look for rubber on the floor. Then look behind the motor to see if it is still in tact. Next try wiggling it, If it wiggles a lot replace it. If that doesnt fix your problem, you probably have a bad transmission.

SOURCE: How to separate auger from agitator. whirlpool ultimate care II

When you look down into the agitator, are there 4 white plastic points that look slightly melted or otherwise deformed? If so, using a small flat head screw and a small hammer, separate the white plastic from the surrounding translucent plastic. Once you've done that, it should easily pull apart.

Whirlpool washer agitator not working


You most likely need to replace the dogs in the agitator, two piece agitator design. It should spin one way and catch the other on the teeth of the dogs. It will spin freely either way when the dogs are wore out. This is for the top half of the agitator, bottom is fitted to transmission shaft. You pop the top cover, remove the 7/16 bolt and both halves together to change dogs of agitator. Pull halves apart to change dogs. Fairly simple.

Upper portion of Whirlpool agitator not turning


Your agitator dogs are worn out. Remove the agitator and seperate the upper section from the lower section. There are 4 small teardrop shaped pieces that are the agitator dogs. They have either come apart over time or at least the teeth have worn off them.
Post back with any questions. Please verify the model number. I couldn't pull up a parts list for it. I know the last digit should be a 0 (zero) instead of an o.
Thanks/Mike

Need to replace the agitator dogs and can't remove the mover from the bottom section


Direct drive Whirlpool washing machines use a two piece agitator. In-between the two pieces there are cogs, sometimes referred to as "dogs," which will wear out. When the dogs start to wear, you will notice a clicking sound and the top agitator will not move as it should. When you learn how to replace the agitator dogs on a Whirlpool washing machine, you can have your Whirlpool working correctly again. Agitator dogs are available at appliance repair facilities.

* 1

Disconnect the Whirlpool washer from the wall outlet. Open the washer lid to access the agitator.

* 2

Insert a flathead screwdriver in the notch in the agitator cap. Twist the screwdriver to pop the agitator cap off of the agitator. If your model has an inner cap, remove the inner cap by pulling up on the handle and removing it from the agitator.

* 3

Use a socket wrench to remove the bolt in the center of the agitator. Most Whirlpool washers use a 7/16-inch bolt to secure the agitator.

* 4

Grab the bottom of the agitator with both hands and pull it straight up out of the wash tub. Do not have your face directly over the agitator. If it is stuck or pops up too quickly you could injure yourself.

* 5

Set the agitator on the floor and carefully place your feet on each side of the agitator. Grasp the top of the agitator and pull the top half of the agitator off of the bottom half. Turn the top half over to access the dogs.

* 6

Use needle nose pliers to pull the dogs out of the agitator. Install the replacement dogs into the agitator according to the specifications given the manufacturer.

* 7

Set the top half of the agitator back on to the bottom half. Make sure to align the two tabs together between the halves so that they will friction fit. Grab the bottom of the agitator and apply a thin coat of dishwashing detergent on the rubber gasket on the bottom using your finger.

* 8

Set the agitator back into the wash tub and secure it using the retaining bolt. If your model had an inner cap, set the inner cap back into the agitator until it snaps into place.

* 9

Place the top of the agitator into place and press down until it locks into place.

Agitator issue (Agitator and not workin properly


The majority of the agitator problems with a whirlpool agitator involve the dogs wearing out on the two piece or dual agitaion agitators. It is simple to pull the agitator off by popping off the top cap and turning the 7/16 inch bolt counter clockwise in the center to release then pull off the agitator .
WIth some force it can be pulled apart to replace dogs, or any service store nearby.(The four little dogs have teeth on them which wear off over time)

Hope this helps.....

+whirlpool LSQ8243HQ0 water valve works. wont wash or spin. new motor coupling and timer.


Under the agitator you have what is called (agitating dogs). The agitator will have to be removed. The top should spin off, you will be able to look down into the agitator and see a bolt. Remove this bolt and the agitator can be pulled out. The agitators are small pieces of plastic with small teeth. These teeth get worn out over time or if the washer is overloaded. When the agitator free spins one way the teeth grab a (gear) on agitator and this is how you get the washing action (agitating). These dogs are easy to replace and cost about $5.

The top part of the aggatator does not turn


Washer has trouble agitating... Check the agitator dogs inside the top of the agitator, they are bad for wearing out, sometimes the agitator may only agitate one way when the dogs are worn out. This is an instruction sheet that came with the last parts I ordered for a Whirlpool/Inglis style direct drive washer agitator. If you need to replace your agitator dogs, please see this link for some repair aid.


Replace the dogs its a easy fix for you
