Found this site by accident but very glad that I did. The information here solved my problem in less than 15 minutes of searching. Repair kit was very easy to install and the online video was a tremendous help. The only negative thing that I have to say is that I was unable to find the grease (part #350849) that they call for locally. Might be a good idea to include that in the kit or suggest that it is ordered with the kit..
Were these instructions helpful?
Replaced the water control solenoid and rebuilt the agitator.Rather than describing how I did the repairs I recommend watching the videos on the website. They are very informative and easily followed. The most difficult part of the repair was reinstalling the cabinet when the repairs were complete but still a cinch if you watch the videos. An extra pair of hands is helpful to guide the cabinet into place but with patience one can do it alone. Thanks for making the job simple and saving me a service call and $$$ in labor on my 23 year old washer!
did not have to turn off waterno panels to removeleft top of washer as is with socket wrench unbolted bolt holding agitator , removed whole unit ,cleaned unit ,looked at all replacement parts and worked in reverse to replace them . This was the easiest job I thought was hopeless.
I followed the YouTube demo as directed. Very simple and the washer is like new!!
Removed softner dispenser, reached in and removed lower plastic disk by pulling up on raised tabs, with a long extension and 7/16 socket removed bolt under the removed disk, lift up on the bottom of the agitator to remove, pull up on top half of the auger and remove, clean all soap scum from the agitator and auger inside and out of both parts, follow inclosed directions included in repair kit for reassembly of included parts, be careful making sure all parts are lined up and seated properly before replacing bolt. Agitator auger should turn in one direction only.
removed cap and seal cap from top agitator removed retaining bolt with 1/2 socket with a long extension. Followed the direction for replacing parts. The 25 year old machine's agitator is functioning and working as expected. Took long to find the tools than doing the repair.
Just followed the picture for the cams, but before you start the repair take notes on how the whole agitator comes apart because there are no instructions on how to replace it.
I watched the videos before I ordered the part and when the order arrived I replaced the parts with no problems. The most time consuming part of the job was cleaning the washer. You will be surprised to find what will accumulate down there after years of service. The order came in in record time so this site gets an A+ for being fast and accurate. No back-orders either. I will surely use for any-other parts I need in the future.
I remover the top of the agitator by pulling straight up. Then used a 7/16 socket, extension, and ratchet to remove the bolt that held the agitator in place. Then pulled the complete assembly out of the washer. Separated the upper and lower sections, and cleaned all parts. then installed the new parts, and reassembled the agitator. Then reinstalled the agitator in the washer, and installed the new retaining bolt. Snapped the top back on the agitator, and the job was finished. The most time was spent on cleaning up the agitator and drum, as this washer is 8 years old. Appliance grease is to be used between the upper and lower parts, this also Should be included in the repair kit.
