Question about Whirlpool LSW9700P Top Load Washer
Yes agitator dogs. they rotate outward when the agitator cranks backwards and rotates the top agitator. you can find them at most appliance stores. they range 5-25 bucks. you will need a ratchet, socket (size unsure but believe 1/2"), small screwdriver, and an extension 8" for the ratchet. if you are doing the work, i expect it will take you about 1/2 hour total time. with your parts in hand follow the instructions below. 1. with small screwdriver pry the top cover off the top of the agitator. you will see the line when you start prying it. then work it loose with your hand. 2. look inside there is a plastic cover with a small tab . pull this out, it just pulls out. 3. at this point you have exposed the set nut. this is what actually holds down the top agitator to the base unit. 4. with the ratchet unscrew the bolt inside its about 3/4" to 1" long. and pull bolt (unscrewed) out with your hand. now the unit is ready to pull off. Note you may need to hold the bottom base with one hand while u unscrew bolt. 5. slowly work the top agitator upward holding the base part down. it may be a little sticky. be patient. once your get it off. 6. turn the top agitator that u just pulled off upside down..you will then see the dogs and that they are held in with a plastic sleeve. carefully pull off the sleeve and replace each dog, one by one. some will be broken some will be stripped. there are 4 of them. once done reverse the process you will be able to try the agitator by turning it cclockwise. it should catch. if at this point it does not you may need to replace the agitator which is about 50- bucks or so. with the same process to change out. gl k

There is a is a cheap part that fits at the top to make it agitate. Go to your friendly dealer, buy and install. These go frequently.
