    Do we have to take the bolt out and take the whole agitator out? Or maybe just put some counter weight on the agitator to seperate the two pieces?

    Do we have to take the bolt and the whole agitator out or can we put counter weight on the agitator while it is still in the machine?

Nothing else needs to be removed. place the agitator on the floor, step on the sides of the bottom of the agitator, grab the top section of the agitator and pull, the sections will separate. hope this helps.

Agitator doesnt reall agitate


The top of the agitator pulls off. near the area where the two square holes are is a clear plastic piece. This pulls out as well. Then you will remove the bolt below this. From there the whole agitator can pull out. The issue is there are 4 plastic dogs near the bolt that have worn. You will need to seperate the 2 pieces to get at replacing the 4 dogs that look like a tear drop. I do not know a good way as they are 4 small crimped areas near the bolt that needs to seperate. I broke a couple and did my best at re-attachment. Quick job just take your time.

The center part that adgitates does not rotate as i think it should can i tighten it somehow


You need to remove the screw from the center of the agitator and pull up on the agitator from the bottom , to remove it . Seperate the 2 piece agitator , and replace the 4 agitator " dogs " . Reasemble . The " dogs " lets the top section of the agitator only move in 1 direction causing the clothes to " tumble " . OR , take the complete agitator to a parts house and they will install them for you .

Top of agitator does not agitate with lower agitator.(dual agitation) whirlpool model LA3860XW00


You will need to replace the Dogs. Take cap off of the center of the agitater, take bolt out of center and pull agitater up and off. Pull two pieces apart. There are four dogs that catch on gear teeth inside your agitater. The four dogs come in a hit, sometimes with a couple other pieces. Has to do with which model you have) replace these four and any other pieces that come in the kit you order. This will fix your problem.

Adgitator removal


Just follow these steps:

1. Remove the center dispenser from the top of the agitator. It should just pop off.
2. Locate the white plastic cap underneath and pull straight up to remove.
3. Locate the agitator bolt underneath and remove using a socket and ratchet (can't remember the size). Hold the agitator still with one hand in order to loosen the bolt.
4. With the bolt removed, grasp the agitator by the bottom flanges and pull straight up. It should lift off the center post.

NOTE: Sometimes these agitators will stick due to years of detergent accumulation. You may have to wobble it back and forth to get it loose.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Top agitator not working properly


Check the agitator by turning it back and forth. It should work like a ratchet (turns one way, locks the other way).If you're able to turn it in both directions, the agitator dogs are worn and need to be replaced. To do this remove the agitator cap and the bolt that holds down the agitator. With the bolt out you can remove the top section of the agitator (auger) where you should see 4 small white or beige plastic gears (dogs). Replace those and it should be ok.

Agitator problem


Check and see if it spins freely in both directions. If it does, this means that your "dogs" are worn out in the top agitator. This is an easy fix. You just get the new ones (usually 10$ or less), pull the top cover off the agitator, then pull the center cap off inside of the agitator. Then you just remove the center bolt and pull the whole top agitator off. You will see the 4 plastic dogs right on the top of the agitator.

WHIRLPOOL WASHING MACHINE MODEL: 6LSC8255EQ1; COGS IN ADGITATOR BROKEN


If just the top portion of the agitator does not work, you are likely looking at and agitator dog problem. Yes, it's a silly name for the part, but that is what it says right on the manufactures replacement part. While you are in there, I would also recommend replacing your thrust spacer as well as they get brittle over time. So, once you have part numbers 80040 (agitator dogs) and 8055228 (thrust spacer), here's how to swap them out. First remove your fabric softner dispenser. It should have a blueish/ green ring around it. The ring locks it in place. Lift the ring and the dispenser will lift off. Next, as you look down under where the dispenser was, you will see clear plastic with a black rubber ring around it. There are 2 tabs sticking out of the top of it, just grab these (needle nose pliers would make it easier) and pull it up. Under that you will find a bolt (7/16" if I remember correctly) Remove the bolt and the whole agitator can lift out now. If only the top half comes off, don't worry about it. the bottom half can stay without a problem. As a matter of fact, the thrust spacer sits between the 2 halves. Now, the area where the bolt came out is a seperate piece. It may or may not be held in by two white plastic tabs at the bottom. If it is, just work the tabs off with a small flat head screwdriver. Once this piece is seperated, you will now see your agitator dogs. There is a ring holding them on from the bottom. Slide the ring off and replace all 4 dogs. Wipe any extra fabric softner and shavings from the previous dogs out. Re-assemble in reverse.
