Hello

Some are secured with a screw that holds them down to the shaft, some have ring clips and some are made with tightly fitting spline. If there is a cap on the top of the agitator you can pop it off to see if it has a screw or ring clip that has come loose

SOURCE: loose agitator

Remove the center dispenser. Under the dispenser is a plastic cap with a pull handle on it. Pull the cap straight up and you will find a mounting bolt underneath. Using a socket and ratchet, tighten the bolt snug. DO NOT overtighten as this may cause damage to the agitator. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number, there is an excellent exploded view diagram of the agitator components under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub" heading. If you still require assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

SOURCE: need to tighten loose agitator on whirlpool

You need to pop the cap off the center post of the agitator, followed by removing the plastic cap and o-ring inside. The agititator bolt is located underneath. Tighten with (I believe) a 9/16 socket with ratchet. Tighten until snug. Do not overtighten as this can restrict agitator motion and may crack it.

Now, if you talking about the upper portion (auger) of the agitator slipping, you will need to replace the agitator dogs. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r823955-replacing_agitator_dogs

The dogs are small plastic teeth that are located under the center post cap used to grip the auger as it turns. They do wear out periodically and require replacement. If you go to appliancepartspros.com and type in you model number you can view them as item number 10 under the "Agitator, Basket & Tub" section. You can use the part number I provided in the link, or use the Whirpool part number on the website. Both numbers cross reference to the same part. A very inexpensive fix...

If you still need assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

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.

My Roper washing machine model RAL 5144 AW makes noise when it agitates - like something is loose.


Sounds like your agitator needs to have the agitator dogs replaced.If you take off the top of your agitator you can look down inside and see what's happening. Hope you find this helpful.

Use a 1/4 inch nut driver to tighten the set screw to the agitator shaft. It is about 3 inches up from the bottom of the agitator on the side of the agitator.

Washing machine agitator is loose and makes a lot of noise. Can't figure out how to remove the agitator


Remove top cap of agitator (it may need to be gently pryed up or simply popped off). Under the cap is a large nut which needs to be removed. With the nut removed simply pull the agitator up.

Washing machine won't agitate.


Depending on type of washer, typical top load Maytag, motor turns in opposite direction for wash and spin. Your problem will no doubt be the transmission.
