GE washer WWSR3090T6WW

Recently replaced nylon coupling that mounts agitator to machine. It stripped bolt backed out and the agi. came off. Simple repair, but new bolt seems to be backing out again. How do remove agitator? Easy to remove softener cup but past that will require some knowledge as to procedure so as not to damage parts. Need to get into agitator to examine the mounting couple and bolt. How? Also why would the bolt continue to back itself out.

Is there some other problem thnat is causing this that needs to be addressed? GE washer model WWSR3090T6WW top load.

Won't agitat under agitator yellow coupling held by 7/16 bolt should this spin freely or does this mean its stripped


it probably means that it's stripped. it grips the spine and allows movement of the agitator. the transmission shaft may be rotating back and forth, but the agitator doesnt move properly. i would remove the coupling and take a look underneath it to see if it's stripped.

Agitator loose does not swish clothes around .... can't figure out how to remove the agitator in order to see what may have come loosened or if splines are stripped .... how do you remove the agitator ?


Hello, on the style GE washer there is an agitator coupling under the agitator that will sometimes strip out. To repair this remove the agitator by pulling it straight up and out.
TIP: If you can't get your fingers under the agitator, you can slip a belt under the agitator and then pull by that, once the agitator is off you should see a yellow coupling held on by a 7/16 bolt, remove that bolt and pull the coupling up and off the transmission shaft. Sometimes it will be hard to remove and you might need to knock it up with a hammer. Once it is off you should be able to slide the new one back on, bolt it down and push the agitator back on.
Thanks

Agitator for whirlpool washing machine


The plastic dogs are stripped inside the center of the agitator. To remove agitator pop off the top center cover(slot for screwdriver) There is a 7/16 inch bolt with standard thread, remove it and pull out agitator. Pull the agitator apart, you can stand on the bottom half and pull on the top, you have to reassemble it with the new dogs replaced(there are four in a package) Fairly simple, no special tools needed,
good luck.

The aggitator is not working right ..it seems to spin like a nut on a stripped bolt.


If this is a Whirlpool manufactured washer, the problem is very simple, inexpensive and easy to repair.

Whirlpool has a split agitator design. The upper portion is called the auger, while the bottom is called the agitator. Between these components is a agitator cam assembly. This problem is commonly caused by worn agitator dogs, worn agitator cam assembly, or a loose agitator bolt. The following link explains what the dogs are and how to replace them:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs

The part number is included in the link provided. You can purchase replacements at pcappliancerepair.com for about $5. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam replacement kit, which includes the cam, the thrust bearing, and the dogs for about $11 or $12.


NOTE: You can refer to the excellent exploded view parts diagrams the web site has to offer for assistance. Whirlpool also recommends the application of a little grease on the thrust washer. The part number for their recommended grease is AP3098553.

If you have any questions about this repair, please post back with your complete model number (located on a nameplate along the wash tub opening under the lid) and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: DO NOT overtighten the agitator bolt. This can cause damage to the plastic, or restrict the agitator movement. Tighten until snug only.

Ultimate Care won't agitate


Hello Friend, Your problem is a simple quick fix. Sounds to me like you just need to replace the agitator dogs, Under $5, they are fairly easy to replace: Pack of 4 pcs. Just remove the agitator bolt and remove, then remove upper piece and pull out assymbly (easy) just drop in the new agitator dogs and re-install assymbly. Then re-install agitator and your done.

Whirlpool Toploader won't spin with a heavy load.


Do you mean it won't spin or won't agitate? Agitate means that the post in the middle (agitator) turns back and forth. It is very common for the agitator to stop working properly, especially if you normally do large loads.

Inside the agitator are little nylon feet called dogs. They grip the inside of the agitator and work like a centrifugal clutch, and they wear out every couple of years. They are normally the reason the machine won't agitate. I have had my washer for less than 4 years and I just replaced the dogs for the second time.

If you are handy with some simple tools, you can probably do this. If not, it should not cost too much to repair, and will be even cheaper if you remove the agitator and bring it with you to the repair shop. They did not even charge me the first time the dogs went because it took about 10 minutes to fix and I brought the agitator to them.

To replace the dogs, go to your local repair shop and tell them you need a set of agitator dogs for your washer. I paid $10 for them.

Pull off the fabric softener dispenser top and assembley. It just pulls out. There is a plastic disk with a handle on it. Pull this out and you will see a bolt. I believe it is an 11mm. You will need a couple of extensions to reach it. Remove this bolt by turning counter clockwise and the agitator will pick strait up. Place the agitator on the floor and press down on the base with your feet. If you look down into the agitator you will will see four small holes in a circular pattern. These holes have small plastic prongs coming through them. Using a screwdriver, gently press down on these prongs one at a time while pulling up (gently) on the agitator. This will release the agitator post from the base.

From the underside of the agitator post you can see the dog assembly. It pulls out easily. Pay close attention to how the dogs come out and put the replacements back in the same way. I repeat, PAY ATTENTION. It is a simple assembly process, but if you don't watch closely how it comes apart you may have a hard time putting it back together.

When you finish replacing the dogs, place the top of the agitator back on the base. Line up the pastic tabs with the holes (that you removed using the screwdriver) and carefully press down until the tabs snap through. If the tabs are not lined up with the holes, they will break off and that will be bad.

Place the agitator back in the washer, bolt it down, replace the plastic cover and fabric softener dispenser. It should be good to go. Do a trial run without clothes. Just push down on the top of agitator while it is in the agitation cycle. It should agitate correctly now.

Whirlpool toploader gearbox/clutch removal


Last Night I took the machine apart to find clutch/brake assy ok gearbox was also ok then I noticed shaft coupling was different than new part I had in stock, new part made totally of nylon, old part fitted to machine has steel insert built into nylon. this was not fully located onto motor shaft and the first 1/4" of motor shaft had been stripped back to round ( no flat faces) also inside the steel lined bore of the nylon coupling had been worn to round.I replaced with new coupling of nylon and ensured both nylon parts fully pushed home onto motor shaft and gearbox shaft with any freeplay / gap being allowed in the rubber drive link. This has worked for now but expect trouble in future with worn motor shaft.

Loose agitator on Whirlpool Ultima Care II washer


it could have stripped the spline on the plastic agitator. there is a bolt at the middle of the agitator and you can access that thru the top . remove the top cover and you can remove the bolt using a deep socket.

once you remove the agitator you can look at the dog agitator. these a 4 pcs plastics that works like a one way wrench.

be careful on the location, they are very hard to put back.

check also the spline on the inner part of the plastic assembly.

they do get stripped.

if they are, replace the whole agitator.

tnx 4 using fixya,
