Followed the simple instructions on youtube, searching for "kenmore upper agitator doesn't work." There are a number of videos there. Find the notch on agitator cover and pry off the cover using a flat screw driver. Remove the nut in the center of the agitator using the 7/16 socket with extension. Remove upper agitator (mine came off easily but some may require removing the entire agitator, then pulling off the upper agitator). Remove assembly from inside and replace the dogs. Reassemble.
Were these instructions helpful?
Pulled off fabric softener cup and beneath that is a 7/16" bolt. Removed that and changed the cogs. Super easy.
Removed softener dispenser. Removed cover and o ring, removed bolt that holds adjitater and replaced clutches. Thanks for the help!
Followed instructions on website, replaced agitator dogs, flawless repair and very easy. Works like new
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.
My washer is operational now. Thanks
Removed fabric softener cover, inner cover and removed screw and washer. Replaced cogs, changed the inner seal ring and changed out screw and washer. Put it all back together and done. This is the 2nd time I've had to replace cogs since I've had the washer.
Remove cap. Use socket to remove retaining bolt. Remove cogs holder. Use screw driver to remove retaining ring. Replace cogs. Reverse for installation.
Took detergent dispenser off..removed bolt and replaced parts..put back together
I looked at the pictures on the order form and thought I could guess what was damaged then I saw the trouble shooting section and it said that it could be two parts, I saw the price and ordered both. I watched the video on how to replace the parts I purchased, it only took me 30 minutes to replace both. My wife was so impressed she cleaned up after me and after I did a trial run and gave the OK she started washing my clothes. Thanks for making the video. Jay
