Washer would spin, but not agitage

Replaced agitator coupling. First removed large white agitator assembly. It all came out in one piece. There is no bolt on the top that holds assembly onto shaft (as in most other washers). I pulled it out with my hands although it took significant force. The only hard part was removing the old agitator coupling. this was the hardest part. I ended up breaking it into pieces to remove it. Then cleaned the shaft very well and installed the new Agitator Coupling. Replaced the Agitator assembly. Coupling kit fixed the problem.

Washer was not agitating

Popped off the main agitator cone with my hands (didn't need a tool or rope, but I did scrape an arm by doing so). Used a wrench to loosen, then remove the bolt to the agitator coupler. Removed the coupler, replaced it with the new coupler. Resintalled the agitator cone. Could not have been simpler.

Agitator stopped working

Remove agitator by pulling upwards allowing it to seperate from the coupling. Once agitator was removed the coupling was exposed. There is a 11mm bolt on the top of the coupling. Remove the bolt then remove the coupling by lifting it straight up. When the old coupling is removed, clean the spline with a wire brush removing debris and calcium build up. Once spline is clean, slide on new coupling and secure with new coupling bolt. Once new coupling is installed and secure, reconnect the agitator by sliding it over the coupling and pushing down.

Auger not actuating and a new machine

Removed the actuator from the the drum and replaced the agitator coupling and retaining bolt and re-installed the agitator. The repair was quick and simple. The problems was the main user of the machine had already planned on and picked out a new machine with all the bells and whistles. Did not see that problem coming. I figure the best fix for that is to just run and look out for flying debris. Repair cost < $20. and a week down time (Standard Ground Shipping).
