Product Description

The thrust spacer is a genuine OEM part that is more commonly known as a retainer ring. The spacer is made of white plastic and measures approximately 2.5 inches in diameter. This part is found in between the agitator and the auger in your direct drive washing machine. The space is used to support the auger and secure it on the agitator base. If your washer will not agitate, or is shaking or excessively noisy while running, you may need to replace the ring. Please note that this repair requires dual-action agitator grease, which is not included with this part.

agitator stopped working
Follow the videos and it's easy to do the repair. Spent more time cleaning the appliance than it took to do the repair, (shredded rubber from large washer part of the motor coupling and many years of dust). My only suggestion would be to turn down the front legs (feet) so it's easier to get the cabinet body under the front steel spreader piece of the cabinet frame. Also, breaking off the plastic tabs under the thrust spacer, as suggested in video, will prevent them from getting in the way when you reassemble the parts. First attempt one folded under the thrust spacer and prevented it from seating properly. A socket extension is a must to remove/install agitator bolt.

We watched the video and kept the instructions close by. We did not have any problems with doing everything that the video showed and once it was all back together, it ran like it did in the past. Everything working good at this time.
