Question about Whirlpool LSR7333 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Agitator LSR7233EQO Model Whirlpool The top part of the agitator does not go around but loosely sits there when the washer agitates on the bottom part. Also, the top part of the barrel smells. How do you open the top to clean it? How do you take the top white ring off to clean it? We don'nt use the bleach container on the top. Is that why it smells?

The center cap of the agitator should just pop off by lifting straight up or gently prying with a flat balde screwdriver in the seam. If the upper agitator is just spinning around, then you probably have worn agitator dogs (yes, there is such a thing). The following link explains how to replace them:

As far as the smell is concerned, even though you don't use the dispenser, moisture can still get inside from the agitation of the wash cycle. Over a period of time it can mildew. You need to remove the center cap and periodically inspect and clean it. I hope this is helpful to you.

    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.

    The agitator does not pull the clothes down. They just sit on top. It goes around but not up & down.


    This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

    First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

    http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

    Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

    If the bottom agitates and not the top, the problem is likely the 4 "agitator dogs" designed to allow the top agitator to turn only one way.

    Look at the section on the Sears site for Agitator, basket and tub.

    See the part "Dog, agitator "

    Remove the fabric softener unit, lift the top agitator cap (use a screwdriver) and you should see a plastic part in the center of the top agitator with a 1/2" square drive.

    Remove the drive and lift off the top agitator. Turning it over you should see the 4 "dogs", replace these and the top agitator should turn in one direction only.

    Replace the 1/2" drive, the cap and fabric softener unit and the top agitator should work.

    Also see the following illustrated description of the above.

    I can't get top part off the agitator


    This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

    First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
    http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

    Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.


    If you have a 2 part agitator assembly (Fabric softener dispenser, top agitator and main agitator)

    First, push down on the ring around the bottom of the fabric softener dispenser and lift it off the agitator.

    Pry the top cap (a short screwdriver into the slots in the cap works) of the top agitator.

    Looking into the center of the top agitator, you'll see a plastic piece with a 1/2" square hole. Using a 1/2" socket set extension, unscrew the piece carefully. You might have to hold the bottom agitator in place while you do this.

    The top agitator pulls up.

    You'll see a bolt and screw holding the bottom agitator on. Carefully unbolt this one and the entire bottom agitator will pull up.

    There are 3 plastic dogs that have teeth. They become worn smooth and will not engage the agitator. Change these for about $12 and you will be back in business.
